Less popular and niche crops will be the focus of the thematic sessions that will be held as part of the business program of the International Specialized Exhibition of Agricultural Machinery AGROSALON.
Rye, triticale, durum wheat yielding leading positions to such crops as corn, sunflower, rapeseed, soybeans, soft wheat - the market and export opportunities here have long prioritized. Unpopular grain crops do not claim to be exported, but the demand in the domestic market makes farmers pay attention to them. Moreover, breeders offer modern varieties and hybrids that take these crops beyond the limits of their hitherto known areas of application. The open session "Little-popular, but promising grains" will outline the potential for cultivation and constraints on the spread of these crops in crop rotations of farms, highlight issues of agricultural technology, and introduce listeners to such a culture as trititrygia, will reveal the secrets of production spelled (spelt) in an organic farming environment.
The second horticultural open session - "From fiber to superfood" - will touch upon the cultivation of crops such as linen и hemp, will indicate their relevance both in the production of fiber, and for the production of oils and seeds. A healthy lifestyle (HLS) is a trend that is gaining more and more adherents in our country. This is confirmed by the growing demand for superfoods - natural products with a high concentration of nutrients. The range of superfoods of domestic origin is expanding. Amaranth и quinoa from Russian fields are already competing with imported ones, and sorghum is no longer perceived as an exclusively fodder crop. The speakers of the session will highlight the features of the production of these niche crops in their speeches.
The cultivation of unpopular grain and niche crops as alternatives to the main export crops will allow domestic farms not only to diversify production, but also significantly expand crop rotations, resist the accumulation of pathogens in soils, and use land and climate resources more efficiently.
Open session "From fiber to superfood" will take place on October 4, 2022.
Open session "Unpopular, but promising grain" will take place on October 5, 2022.
