Abstract

The results of chemical analyses of the composition of peat, lignite, turkey droppings and the potato industry effluent are presented. The results indicate that the substances can be used in mineral-organic fertilizer recipes. Although lignite and peat do not contain assimilable nutrients, from the ecology and pedology point of view they are valuable components of mineral-organic fertilizers. In order to determine the optimum turkey droppings and potato industry effluent dose in fertilizer biological studies using the germination tests were carried out. The demand for nutrients differs between plants. The mineral-organic fertilizer recipes were developed for sugar beet which is a highly demanding plant taking up large quantities of nutrients.
