This guidance details the use of food-based digestate across a diverse range of markets in the landscape and regeneration sectors.
- Both the digestate and the synthetic fertiliser applications increased the levels of soil available nitrogen
- Fibre digestate supplies good amounts of organic matter and higher amounts of valuable nutrients than composts
- The material needs to be properly matured and incorporated into the soil, before plants are established in time for when their nitrogen requirements are greatest.
In spring 2012 WRAP commissioned a series of demonstration trials designed to evaluate the use of food-based digestate across a diverse range of markets in the landscape and regeneration sectors. This included growing energy crops on brownfield sites and the production and maintenance of sports turf.
This final project bulletin includes a review of the results and conclusions from four projects in the programme, as well as a discussion of practical recommendations from the research teams.
