Agroholding "Dary Malinovki" was founded in 2013, the main activities are the production of seed potatoes, the cultivation and processing of potatoes and vegetables in the open field, the cultivation of oilseeds and fodder crops, and dairy farming. The entire production infrastructure is deployed in geographically isolated and ecologically clean areas of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, which ensures a low viral background of seed potatoes. The total sown area of the agricultural holding is 30 hectares.
In 2015, the agricultural holding began the development of seed production. Since 2017, in partnership with leading originators from Germany, Holland and Russia, Dary Malinovki has been producing and selling high-reproduction seed material. Since 2018, together with the Krasnoyarsk Agrarian University, a comprehensive scientific and technical project "Development of breeding and seed production of potato varieties adapted to growing conditions in the Krasnoyarsk Territory and Eastern Siberia" has been implemented under the subprogram "Development of potato breeding and seed production in the Russian Federation" the technical program for the development of agriculture for 2017-2025. In 2020, the seed fund of the farm has already 30 varieties of potatoes, including high-performance chip varieties, the quality of which has been confirmed by the manufacturer of chips and potato snacks.
“Our agricultural holding is the only producer of seed potatoes in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, the leader in its production in the Siberian Federal District. In its production, we use cultivation technologies and plant protection systems from the leading European countries, adapted and tested in the conditions of Eastern Siberia, including phytosanitary cleaning.
In the post-harvest period, the selected samples are tested for viruses and tuber analysis in independent certified laboratories, - said Vasily German, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Dary Malinovki agricultural holding.
- Thanks to this, as well as the use of a complex of modern specialized equipment, strict quality control when growing seeds, we consistently hold leading positions in the Siberian Federal District and are among the twenty leaders in the production of certified seed potatoes in the Russian Federation.
In 2020, a scientific and laboratory complex was launched, which includes a laboratory for microclonal plant reproduction and two greenhouse complexes. This became possible thanks to the previously mentioned potato breeding and seed production project, which is being implemented by specialists of the Dary Malinovki agricultural holding and scientists from the Agricultural University. The laboratory is equipped with everything necessary for PCR - real-time diagnostics of plants for diseases and viruses, introduction into in vitro culture, multiplication and cultivation of more than 100 thousand microplants at the same time.
In 2020, more than nine thousand potato cuttings of eight varieties of Russian selection were planted in greenhouses. The goal of the project is to create a unique system of original seed production, which ensures the receipt of healthy planting material and its accelerated multiplication for industrial production in order to sell competitive seeds of the "elite" category at a reduced cost.
It should be noted that potato seeds are also grown for their own needs. Their quality is confirmed by high yields: at the moment, Dary Malinovki grows potatoes on 700 hectares, in 2020 33 tons per hectare were harvested, with an average yield in the Krasnoyarsk Territory of about 17-20 tons. In 2020, LLC "Agricultural enterprise" Dary Malinovki "was awarded the" Golden Ear "award for the best yield of potatoes and vegetables - this is 329 and 342 centners per hectare, respectively. The high taste and many other qualities of the product are confirmed by the consistently high demand for potatoes among vegetable suppliers, grocery retailers and ordinary buyers in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.
A few years ago, the agricultural holding launched custom production of seed potatoes for agricultural producers. The enterprise concludes contracts for the production of seed potatoes, both elite and reproductive seeds, at the request of the buyer, - noted Yuri Alexandrovich Piryatenets, Production Director of LLC Agricultural Production Enterprise Dary Malinovki, - there are indeed a lot of advantages, here are just some of them: determination of the variety and annual volume of seed material, fixed price, savings on logistics, control of the entire production cycle of seed potatoes, absence of viruses and bacterial diseases of seed material, cultivation strictly according to seed technology. The quality of our seeds is confirmed by varietal and quarantine certificates. We can also conclude an agreement on cooperation in the cultivation of seed potatoes from any stage of the seed cycle.
