ABSTRACT
The new generation of soil improving agents (the so-called soil conditioners) has been suggested for immediate and complex restoration of the soils damaged by the flood in Central and Eastern Europe in 1997. The new ameliorants are prepared on the bases of peat, sapropel, glauconite and other kinds of natural raw materials. Composition of the soil improving agents depends on their application and can be controlled by the ratio between individual components. Effectiveness of the new soil improving agents was estimated in practical application and field tests on the damaged, desert and cultivated soils in Belarus, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt.
