Short title: FSBSI SOS VNIIMK

In 1961, at the initiative of VNIIMK scientists the Siberian experimental station of oil crops was founded in southern forest-steppe zone of the Omsk region, in the city of Isilkul.

The main tasks of the experimental station are the development of high-yielding, high-quality varieties and hybrids of oil crops with the short growth period for severe conditions of Siberia, development of the scientifically based technology of their cultivation, and improvement of mechanization.

Currently, the subdivisions structure of the Siberian experimental station includes the departments of breeding, seed growing, oil crops agrotechnology, and the laboratory of agrobiochemistry.

3 sunflower varieties, 3 spring rapeseed varieties, 4 oil flax varieties, 2 spring false flax varieties, and 2 spring turnip rapeseed have been included in the State Register of selection achievements approved for cultivation. Three promising varieties of oil crops are undergoing the State variety trials.

Annually, the Siberian experimental station sells up to 500 t of oil crops seeds and up to 1500 t of seeds of cereal crops of higher reproductions.

Due to research at the experimental station twenty PhD theses were defended.
