Theme III. Agricultural use of peat and peatlands
The screening system for assessing the biological activity of peat as a raw material and products derived from it for agriculture have been developed. The biological activity of peat of different Ukraine’s deposits have been assessed with the use of the screening system. Based on received results, the new type of cadastre, the Biocadastre of peats of Ukraine, has been developed. Today, the Biocadastre’s database is successfully used for the optimal choice of peat deposits and for the development of modern biotechnologies for receiving new humic preparations for agriculture, medicine and other industries. This approach to the selection of raw materials has yielded new biologically active peat products Hydrohumate and Humilid. They can be widely used as a stimulants and regulators of plant growth and development. Hydrohumate and Humilid have been tested and were officially registered in Ukraine as a feed additive to the basic diet of farm animals.
