Tulaikov Samara Agricultural Research Institute of Agriculture has developed a plant for growing potatoes. Its distinguishing feature is the lack of soil.
On Tuesday, January 16, the head of the laboratory for biotechnology of agricultural crops Alexey Milekhin presented a prototype of the production installation of the interim governor of the Samara region Dmitry Azarov.
- So far, only one pilot complex is operating in the country on an industrial scale. But agricultural enterprises are already expressing interest in this technology, ”said Alexey Milekhin.
According to him, now the laboratory staff are also working on the production of planting material for potatoes. In recent years, scientists have introduced to the market two new varieties of this culture - “Samara” and “Zhigulevsky”.
It is worth noting that the institute has been operating since 1903. In 2018-2019, the research institutes will carry out the reconstruction of buildings.
