By September 2018, Michurin scientists plan to start growing virus-free planting material for potatoes, fruit crops and tomatoes by orders of agricultural enterprises and scientific organizations.
Scientists of Michurinsky State Agrarian University will be engaged in the propagation of virus-free potatoes on the basis of the recently built greenhouse tunnel. A greenhouse with an area of 0,1 hectares is provided with all necessary engineering communications, the press service of the educational institution reports. It is planned to fully introduce the tunnel into the designed capacity by September of this year.
The training and research greenhouse complex in which this tunnel is located has been erected for several years. In 2013, a modern 0,5-hectare greenhouse and a two-story educational building were built, in which innovative technologies for growing vegetables and other crops in greenhouses are trained.
