SatoHum® - our philosophy, mission and values
In step with the demands of the times, on the way to the origins

EU Green Deal

European Green Deal, also referred to as the EU Green Agenda, is the European Union’s sustainable development roadmap. The Green Deal includes a set of measures focused on the transition to a clean circular economy, the restoration of biodiversity and the reduction of environmental pollution.


By 2030, the EU commits to reduce the use of chemical pesticides by 50%, cut down the use of mineral fertilizers by at least 20%, diminish nutrient losses without affecting soil fertility and extend organic farming by 25%.

The pan-European “green” trend in food and fodder crop production is explained not only by systematic education of eco-consciousness and orientation of consumers for a healthy lifestyle. There are pragmatic reasons that force Europe to think about the future of its entire food industry and the healthy origin of its crops, fruits, fodder and livestock:


  • EU is dependent on the supply of mineral fertilizers,
  • does not have enough cultivated area,
  • needs to intensify agricultural production in order to provide food for the growing year by year population of the EU.

That’s why we design our products to meet the latest EU fertilizer requirements, which considerably reduce the application of pesticides and inorganic chemicals to soils and irrigation.

The main task of our soil improvers, biostimulants, liquid preparations with meso- and microelements and special formulations is to make crop and livestock production the safest for soils, water bodies and the atmosphere. We give back to the earth its original fertility potential, nourishing the lifeblood that will come back to us with healthy food for more and more consumers.

What are we doing

Natural Resources and Science SIA, which works under SatoHum® trademark, is a Latvian company engaged in research, development and production of its own organo-mineral and organic fertilizers, biostimulants and dressings based on sapropel and humic and fulvic acids obtained from peat-sapropel mixtures.


There’s no secret that the European peatlands are a unique biome on our planet, and the centuries-old silty deposits of peat swamps – sapropel itself – are a real storehouse of micronutrients for both plant growth and animal feed.

Sapropel and peat are the main sources of humic and fulvic acids, which have proven to be effective accumulators of fertility.


SatoHum® is a series of effective products based on peat-sapropel mixtures with a high content of humic and fulvic acids. We took advantage of the successful experience of previous generations of peat-sapropel ameliorants and fertilizers and, with the help of laboratory and field tests, we led our products to a new level. The experience of previous years and the current knowledge have allowed us to create a whole pleiad of specialized formulations to solve specific problems.

Our mission is to share the wealth of our land
Our philosophy

Recent trends in both industrial crop production and private horticulture and gardening indicate a reorientation towards a healthy lifestyle that originates in healthy food. Healthy food is more and more demanding on the conditions of its origin.


Healthy animals and birds, as well as healthy cereals, vegetables, fruits and berries, must be nourished by the energy of wildlife, the juices of a healthy and fertile land.


Our philosophy and operating principles are based on a combination of breakthrough knowledge, lessons from experience, maintaining soil fertility and strict observance to fertilizer regulations.


For our SatoHum® brand, there is no problem of land depletion and lack of fertility, because we know how to solve it. We dream that everyone has access to abundant and fruitful crops, the earth nourishes its inhabitants and that everyone enjoys the benefits of their lands.


All our activities are located at the intersection of the restoration of traditional intensive and organic agriculture. We abandon the predatory use of agricultural land and choose to care for the land. We are close to the principles of organic and ecological crop production.


Our technologically advanced, highly effective methods of caring for plantations, professional lawns, green urban environments, and depleted or disturbed lands are based on systematic deep research, long-term field trials and excellent knowledge of crop production, from industrial to individual.

Advantages over classic mineral fertilizers

In intensive crop production, the priority of high yields dominates, which even in the short term causes damage to the fertile layer of the earth, because industrial mineralization leads to lower levels of organic matter in soils.


Our fertilizers combine the principles of sustainable development with the latest advances in high-tech production methods and spot application.

The organic microbiota of sapropel and lowland peat improves porosity, water retention, permeability and stimulates the own microbial flora of the soil, resulting in the conversion of soil compounds into nutrients available to crops. SatoHum® products expand the efficiency of applying mineral fertilizers and reduce the quantitative need for mineral fertilizers.

Advantages over organic fertilizers

Unlike classic organic fertilizers – compost, vermiculite, bokashi, manure – in a peat-sapropel mixture, the degree of decomposition of natural organisms is deeper, therefore, such mixtures and derivative fertilizers cannot be a source of pathogens, but, on the contrary, are characterized by bactericidal properties. Peat and sapropel are stored for more than 2 seasons without special conditions and without changing their structure.

Compost, manure, vermiculite require a special collection and storage technology to bring their best qualities to the soil. Our peat-sapropel mixtures have functional advantages in improving the microbiota of the fertile soil layer, show stable reproducible results, which is difficult to achieve with organic fertilizers, and prevent soil decompaction and acidification.


In combination with compost, manure, chicken droppings and other industrial waste, our mixtures have a neutralizing effect on the high bioactivity of organic fertilizers and prevent the entering of weed and grass seeds contained in organic fertilizers.

Advantages over other organo-mineral fertilizers

As you know, organo-mineral fertilizers based on peat-sapropel mixture are rich in humic and fulvic acids, which contribute to the restoration of polluted, eroded and depleted soils. Humic substances and complex thermodynamic and bioactive complexes of certain enzymes can be formed only in sapropel and have no analogues in wildlife.

By no means all organo-mineral fertilizers contain humic and organic substances in sufficient quantities. To obtain effective humic extracts and fulvic acids, it’s important to use specific raw materials that guarantee their agronomic activity and the minimum effective content in preparations. Such raw materials should give the so-called inherited humin, which is firmly held in soil aggregates and is difficult to biodegrade, which is valuable for restoring and maintaining the fertile layer.


SatoHum® has developed lines of specific products for restoration, enrichment and maintenance of the fertile layer of land for private, ecological and intensive farming, professional lawns, landscape plantings, flower beds, garden and horticultural crops.


The average efficiency of applying our fertilizers in the experimental fields of intensive crop production showed a result of 18 to 22% after the first year of application. When farming according to the No-Till system, a single application of our fertilizers under crop residues with mulch and/or during sowing diminishes the pathogenicity of the upper layer (neutralizes fungi, viruses and bacteria) and restrains the accumulation of lye in the process of green manure nitrification.
