Cover Story (view full-size image): Reed has a long tradition as locally available thatching material, but today, thatch is a globally traded commodity. A written survey among all thatchers in Northern Germany was carried out in 2019. The total market volume of reed for thatching was estimated for 2018 at 3 ± 0.8 million bundles with a monetary value of € 11.6 ± 2.8 million. Reed from Germany held a low share of 17% of the total consumption. The cultivation of reed in paludiculture, i.e., as a climate-smart land use alternative to drainage-based agriculture on peatlands, can increase the availability of thatching reed in Germany and simultaneously reduce GHG emissions.
