They are used in the cultivation of seedlings and used as substrate for potatoes and seeds. It is only important to handle them – then we will be able to significantly increase the yield.
The effect of sawdust on soil
Soil with a lot of disintegrating organic matter, e.g. sawdust, have good permeability and an excellent ability to absorb moisture. On these lands productivity is higher, they do not form harmful for the growth of plants peel, so loosening them is required less often.
