In recent years, the potato market segment in Russia has been growing and improving quite quickly and dynamically. However, a number of problems do not allow to realize the potential of many projects to the full. The lack of high-quality seed material seriously inhibits the growth of potato yields in Russia. That is why it is important to develop and support this segment of agriculture through the creation of a system of self-regulatory organizations, individual companies of European format and level. They can interact with each other and learn from each other's experiences. It is believed that it was the practice of creating private breeding firms that formed the basis for the successful development of this industry in Europe.
FAT-AGRO LLC - Bavaria Group of Companies is one of the most promising enterprises in the industry, on the basis of which a project of a modern seed-growing center is implemented and an advanced complex is functioning, including separate laboratories for soil and tuber analysis, virus-free material, and PCR - and immunodiagnostics. The advanced research methods introduced into the work allow tracking the quality of seed potatoes at each stage of production. Also, the company’s specialists created the Bank of Healthy Varieties (in a special zone at an altitude of more than 2500 m), numbering more than 80 items. It is worth emphasizing that the company is assigned the only recognized spatial isolation zone in Russia, the area of which has doubled over the past three years.
