Field trial in Germany, testing the effects of mulchs

In late April and Early May 2022 two field trials were set up as part of the continuing Miscomar+ project. Building on knowledge acquired in 2021, these experiments are testing the effects of miscanthus mulch and plastic mulch on the establishment of miscanthus. Furthermore, the effect of fertilizer in combination with miscanthus mulch will be investigated to see if this increases establishment success.
