Ukrainian phytoremediation trial sites for CERESiS project

Two trial sites in Ukraine with fuel and mineral oil contamination and pesticides contamination were planted with Reed Canary Grass (RCG) and Miscanthus in spring 2021. As of the end of summer, Reed Canary Grass has grown up to more than 0.8 meters and Miscanthus - up to more than 2 meters. Biomass harvesting is planned for February 2022, when the moisture content in plants is expected to decrease and reach 20-25%.
