LLC "Agrofirma KRiMM" is one of the largest producers of food and seed potatoes and open field vegetables in Russia. In 2020, the gross harvest of crop production amounted to 162 tons. In addition, the farm is engaged in the cultivation of cereals, rapeseed and salads. The total sown area is over 822 thousand hectares. The enterprise includes a robotic complex of filling and packaging equipment, a line for washing / polishing vegetable products, the largest vegetable storehouse in Russia with refrigerated chambers and a unique laboratory of primary seed growing of potatoes "SoKar" (varietal potatoes), accredited by the Russian Agricultural Center, which provides the enterprise with elite seeds: from obtaining minitubers from test-tube plants to finished products.
That is why the agricultural firm "KRiMM" relies on the development of a selection and seed-growing direction of the European level, capable of competing not only in the domestic but also in foreign markets.
Another important unit is a potato processing plant. This unique project has no analogues on the territory of the Russian Federation. The annual processing capacity is 15 tons of finished products, both for production needs and for retail and HoReCa, B000B sectors. The plant is equipped with a high-performance line that produces innovative potato products such as pasteurized potatoes with natural additives with a shelf life of up to 2 days under the Half-Cooked brand, and Fresh Cut - fresh peeled potatoes with a shelf life of up to 60 days. For their production, specially selected varieties of potatoes with good taste are used.
Agrofirma KRiMM LLC has been moving towards such a qualitatively new level of production development systematically for 20 years. Founded in 1999 on the basis of the peasant farm "Niva", today the enterprise is one of the largest agricultural holdings for growing potatoes and vegetables not only in the Tyumen region, but also in Russia. Initially, the agricultural business was based on the principles of specialization and concentration, the implementation of the achievements of scientific and technological progress, the competitiveness of economic and quality indicators of manufactured products.
Today the agricultural company uses the best selection achievements, applies the most advanced technologies of seed and vegetable growing, the latest models of specialized machinery and equipment. For example, in the SoKar laboratory at all stages of seed potato propagation, quality control is carried out using PCR analysis (polymerase chain reaction), as well as ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay). The laboratory produces 1 thousand test-tube plants annually to obtain 000 minitubers. As a result, the farm's collection of potatoes includes 000 varieties - Rosara, Zekura, Karatop, Gala, Innovator, Lux, Bravo, Red Scarlett, etc.
The area under seed potatoes is more than 950 ha, the average yield is 27 t / ha.
The most significant innovation in technologies for the production of crop products in the agricultural firm "KRiMM" is the stage-by-stage development of the precision farming system.
The farm has 2500 hectares of irrigated land. Experts regularly monitor soil moisture and come to the conclusion that irrigation is a whole science. An important role in the development of new technologies at the enterprise is played by constant monitoring of the state of soil fertility, its acidity - especially when planting potatoes and cabbage.
Every year, an operation is carried out on the fields of the Agrofirm to radically improve the structure of the soil, for these purposes in the winter period up to 500 tons (!) Of peat per 1 hectare are brought in.
Thanks to these innovations, even in difficult years, more than 150 thousand tons of gross output are steadily obtained on the farm. Over the past three years, the gross harvest of potatoes has consistently exceeded 100 tons! It is important that the Agrofirma uses seeds of the "Elite" category for planting marketable potatoes. This allows you to systematically increase production capacity, improve the working conditions of workers, and today there are 000 (!) People and provide quality customer service.
The chosen strategy, hard work of the team, active investment activity brought the agricultural firm "KRiMM" to the world level of crop production and ensured satisfaction of the growing demands of consumers.
