Description of project

The purpose of the project is to create a methodology for sustainable management of forest soils and nutrition of forest trees (including planting stock in forest tree nurseries) with help a new types of zeolite-fertilizers by production of the Lovochemie (a chemical enterprise in framework of the Agrofert Group). The aim of the project is to build and test the fertilizers for applying in forest management – to optimize their composition, properties and effects in a way that would allow their use in forestry. Fertilizers will be made for the use in forest stands on poor and acidified soil and also in forest tree nurseries with a focus on the wider application of bare-root planting technology.
