In agricultural production, soil fertility and the overall productivity of arable land depends on the quality and quantity of mineral and organic fertilizers. The decrease in the humus content in soil observed over the past decade requires a systematic use of various organic fertilizers. The use of peat-based fertilizers guarantees high and sustainable crop yields. Restoration of soil fertility should be carried out by organic fertilizers enriched with humic acids with physiologically active groups, free nitrogen-containing components, a complex of nutrients and micro elements. The author considers the possibility of using humus peat ameliorants for the restoration of disturbed lands and the increase of soil fertility. The production and use of peat-based organic fertilizers and ameliorants in various sectors of the economy is an incentive for the stable functioning of the peat business and a significant factor in the socio- economic development of the regions of the Russian Federation.
