Zelta Zeme - Baltic peat moss producer since 1933
Zelta Zeme has significant advantages in peat production
Own peat resources
Zelta Zeme raw material processing uses peat only from our own fields, which are located right next to the plant. We are able to supply ourselves with the best quality raw materials that we control ourselves in all stages.
Large quantities of peat are moved every day. Logistics costs are very important here, so it is a great advantage that we have our own railway from the peat fields to the production.It also reduces total Co2 emissions
Full cycle plant
We have production equipment that ensures a continuous product development cycle from peat field treatment to finished product loaded into truck or container. As a result, we speed up all processes and can effectively control them.
Our peat production
Sphagnum peat moss as a component of horticultural growing media is very important because of the unique main properties of the sphagnum cells to hold and release water. However, there are many ways in which these important features can be significantly changed. Only experienced peat extractors and processors can provide peat that will be ideal for the most demanding grower.

High performance equipment for the production of peat substrates
More than 90 % of all growing media are based on black and white peat. Premium quality raised bog peat has proven to be the constituent with the most beneficial properties for use in growing media. It is the first choice in modern professional horticulture. The quality and performance of growing media are predetermined with the right raw material components. The harvesting method, harvesting technique, structure, moisture content and processing determine important physical factors such as air and water capacity or structural stability.
