The UJEP miscanthus team meeting was held on January 18, 2019 in order to overview the state of the art with research fields in Czech Republic established within the project, i.e.: Hradčany (visinity of Mimon), Chomutov and Všebořice. NDP Valentina Pidlisnyuk, members of UJEP NATO team: Josef Trögl, Diana Nebeská, Hana Malinská and Jan Černý attended the event. PhD student Hana Burdová, young researcher Jiri Štojdl and PostDoc Karim Al Souki partcipated in meeting as well.
The 2018 data of growing miscanthus at three fields were discussed and perspective for research in 2019 was overviewed. In addition to existed data it is planned to accomplish the detailed analysis of the soil kharacteristics and contaminations at the research fields and to present that data in a form of maps of the fields‘ characteristics. The monitoring of biomentic parameters during growing season and at harvest will be continued with requested picturing. In order to ensure the good growth of miscanthus in Mimon where the plantation will be re-established in spring 2019 is was propose to use soil amendment-biochar, and to investigate the impact of its types (received after municipal waste treatment and after processing of biomass to energy) to miscanthus productivity.
In addition the new research on evaluation content of C13/C12 in the soil at Chomutov and Všebořice miscanthus plantations at 3 depth has been initiated by PostDoc Karim Al Souki in cooperation with PhD student Hana Burdová. The first results will be reported to the team at the end of June, 2019.
