The Public Organization "Ukrainian Society of Soil Scientists and Agrochemists" with USAID AGRO’ support conducted the comprehensive research to develop a solution for using bottom sediments from freshwater bodies to improve soil health and fertility. These sediments can be applied to all types of soils as fertilizers, soil improvers, and materials for land recultivation and structural amelioration. They can also be used in the production of organic and mineral fertilizers. This innovative approach addresses two issues simultaneously: restoring soils and improving the health and growth of fish by cleaning ponds.
