The problem of greening the arid zones in Kazakhstan and in the world, as well as addressing water shortages in agriculture in these areas, requires new ideas or innovative technologies. We used sheep’s wool to create biohumus in combination with desert soils. In Kazakhstan sheep’s wool is considered useless, although it is rich in bioresources. Our research shows that biohumus obtained from sheep’s wool is highly fertile in laboratory experiments, and for it the need to use water is 3 times less than for other soils. Under laboratory conditions, we have proven that biohumus can be used to grow plants in different ecological zones. Its use in the wild/field can solve several problems of greening dry areas and growing food crops in low humidity conditions. In addition, it can increase the value of sheep’s wool as a bio resource. It is thus an economically promising technology that meets the environmental standards of a green economy.
