- Techniques for increasing soil fertility and productivity of agricultural crops using adaptogen preparations (39 modifications) for cereals, legumes, vegetables and fruit and berry crops.
- Measures to improve arable land from contamination by heavy metals.
- Techniques for the development, increasing the fertility of soils that have come out of agricultural circulation of unused and low-productive soils.
- Effective methods of obtaining biomineral and bioorganic fertilizers based on zeolite and glauconite and methods of their application.
