Extreme wetness followed by Siberian frost – the production stops.
As if the bad peat harvest of last year and the seemingly endless amount of rain in the Baltic States have not created enough challenges, the weather situation turned into another extreme last week. Frosty temperatures of -20 to -30 degrees Celsius forced the production to stop. We hope the weather will improve in a short while. Nevertheless, what appears problematic in the very moment may hopefully become fortunate afterwards. This flash freeze is the basis for a rich peat harvest and high peat qualities. Sod peat especially profits from the much needed frost effect and the frozen peat areas will dry up evenly and thoroughly once the temperatures rise again.
Unfortunately, until the new harvest in April or May we are only able to deliver a limited range and restricted quantity of peat and peat substrates.
