Abstract

According to the research need for information in decision making in peat production is remarkably higher during unstable weather than during fine weather. Simultaneously, information is needed on effects of the rain on producibility of the field during the unstable weather. The experiences from the example working site show that decisions concerning the timing of the start of the production are based on the estimation of production situation made by the contractor. The decision of ridging is usually made on the basis of the weather forecast of the meteorological institute. The weather observations of the contractor and the weather forecasts of the meteorological institute, especially during poor weather, effect on starting of ridging and collection of peat. During the test period in the summer 1991 in Katvansuo mire the forecasted and confirmed evaporation were in good correspondence with each other. In the case of example working site it could be shown that production could have been increased by 7 % by different production planning intensification methods. The drying potential would have required about 20 % higher production. Most of the lack was due to dimensioning of the production capacity. The values of the example working site can, however, not be  More>>
