Implants of sphagnum tufts on the drain ditches in Planalto dos Graminhais
After some study and preparation, it began during the first week of April the tests to implant sphagnum tufts on the drain ditches in Planalto dos Graminhais.
After the drain ditches construction and some adjustments on the water outflow, the team project responsible for the recovery of the peatbogs of Planalto dos Graminhais started testing some techniques to accelerate the peatbogs recovery in some of the most degraded areas. One way of foing this is by using the sphagnum tufts collected in the near areas and setting them in the intended place.
The purpose is that these implants help recover the peatbogs in the degraded areas, like in the old path.
We hope to have more good news for you soon!
