Overview of Operational Groups

In Schleswig-Holstein 17 innovative projects from 17 Operational Groups will be promoted in the next three years.

Thermal Soil Treatment

Introduction and optimization of a mobile, continuous process for soil steaming for ground-planted nursery plants

Thermal Soil Treatment back to overview

Project description

A serious problem for the whole nursery sector for years is the so-called soil exhaustion in woody plants.

For the elimination of this real soil sickness and controlling soil-bourne pests, there is an urgent need for an alternative to chemical processes (Basamid) that is ecologically, economically and socially acceptable.

The OG wants to contribute to the research of process fundamentals for the solution in soil exhaustion and wants to test the use of a mobile, continuous steam method in practice. This technique is of the utmost importance for all nurseries in Europe.

The realization of the project with the only available prototype in the growing region of Pinneberg ensures the local producers that a quick review and application of the procedure and they can be provided a clear technological advantage.

With this project an economically-viable alternative is provided for the significant Schleswig-Holstein nursery industry, and the environmental and social concerns of horticultural land management are significantly improved.
