Provides information about contemporary area state and degratory peat soils in the Byelorussian Polesie. The territory of the Polesie region includes 36 administrative districts of the Republic of Belarus, including the following regions: Brest ‒ 11, Gomel ‒ 21. Minsk ‒ 3 and Mogilev ‒ 1. From the comparison of the original area of drained peat soils with the current area of degrotorfian soils, it follows that as a result of long-term agricultural use and mineralization, 35 % of the area of drained peat soils in Polesie turned into degrotorfian.
