The HTA, NFU and HDC are opening the meeting with a discussion with the industry on the task force and Dr Alan Knight’s report on the future of peat use.
Knight will chair part of the meeting but is soon to bow out of the task force having completed his final report in July.
HTA business development director Tim Briercliffe said Defra and trade bodies were inviting attendees. He added: "The meeting is open to task force members and anyone else who expresses an interest."
A Defra representative said: "This is a Task Force meeting with additional growers invited to discuss the chairman's report published in July."
Briercliffe said trade bodies were now picking up and taking the task force report into "something that works".
"It’s about the industry giving feedback. The industry has been fairly positive about the report so I think it will be quite a constructive meeting."
He said the Growing Media Initiative, performance standards for growing media and sustainability criteria for different types of growing media were the main ways forward for the task force.
Knight is inviting emailed feedback from all interested parties to his report by the end of September.
