Organic Fertilizers Based on Sapropel and Peat

Application of organic-mineral fertilizers (OMF) based on sapropel and peat is of considerable interest. These include the products called “Humin Plus”, “Sapropeat”, “Sapropeat Uni”, “Sapro Agro”, and “Sapro Elixir”. Sapro Agro (manufactured by LLC LATPOWER, Riga, Latvia) is biologically active soil conditioner, produced on environmentally sound technology from natural ingredients: sapropel colloid and active peat ( Sapro Elixir (manufactured by SIA HUMIN VIT, Ogre, Latvia) is produced from natural fresh water lake sapropel with natural moisture. Sapro Elixir contains a full spectrum of natural biologically active ingredients. The product is balanced with limited amounts of NPK and nutrients ( Sapro Elixir is a highly-efficient natural-organic fertilizer and soil enhancer that can be applied on all types of soils and all kinds of fruit and vegetables, sowing and decorative crops, trees, and bushes. Humin Plus/Sapropeet (manufactured by the German-Ukrainian Center for Innovative Agri-industrial Technologies – FuTech) is an organic mineral micro-fertilizer based on a sapropel extract ( A licensed technology based on new physical principles in the processing of raw materials (cavitation combined with magnetic treatment) is used to obtain micro fertilizers with new characteristics (i.e.: improved consistency and increased physiological and biological activity of the ingredients) ( Sapropeat Uni is a biologically active product aimed at rectifying soil health (

Fuzzy computing in agrophysics

   The aim of EAI project on Fuzzy Computing in Agrophysics is to promote academic teaching and research.

   Traditionally decision of agrophysics problems was evaluated with problem-oriented models. Utilization of fuzzy computing gives new dimension for agrophsics.

   It is well known that in agricultural sciences there exists much fuzzy knowledge, that is, knowledge which is vague, imprecise, uncertain, ambiguous, inexact, or probabilistic in nature. Fuzzy Computing (FC) is power tools for dealing with randomness and uncertainties.

   Because of the potential importance of FC to solve the agricultural research problems Agrophysical Research Institute, St. Petersburg, Russia, began to develop applications of FC in agrophysics 15 years ago. Currently many problems in soil tillage, crop management, precision agriculture, melioration, and agricultural engineering have been solved through FC.

   Information about utilization of FC in agrophysics:

International conference on "Sapropel: extraction, processing, usage".

International conference initiated by Member of European Parliament Alfreds Rubiks (Agriculture and Rural Development Committee of European Parliament) has been held in Riga, Latvia during December 4, 2013, with a theme of "Sapropel: extraction, processing, usage".

At the conference Michael Ostrovsky, Vice President of the European Institute Agrophysics, made a report on a theme of "The sapropel and peat - strategic natural resources: innovative technology for their non-chemical processing; development strategy and experience with new products of deep processing of raw materials in the environmental and traditional agriculture, bio-energy and food industry".

In discussing the summary of the conference, it was suggested to ask the European Agrophysical Institute to be the coordinator of researches on development of agrophysical methods of processing of raw materials (peat and sapropel) in high-tech products for traditional and organic farming.
