The influence of a siliceous mixture on the allelopathic, microbiological, physical, and chemical properties of rhizosphere soil and the vital state of fruit plants under monoculture conditions is studied. The effectiveness of its application for reducing the soil sickness in orchards is shown. It is caused by the activation of microbiological processes, optimization of redox, allelopathic, and nutritional regimes and by an increase in the plant resistance.
