This report was produced under the task of peat replacement (5.5) in Organic-PLUS, to report on the work carried out to make contact and interact with important stakeholders along the value chain for growing media and peat. This report considers the viewpoints of growing media manufacturers and plant nurseries, in addition to organic growers. The report comprises a section on initial dissemination of project activities, to awake stakeholders' interest, then a section with information from stakeholders about current practices (use of substrates, fertilisers for pot production etc). The last section includes stakeholders' views concerning the degree of acceptance of replacement inputs.
