• — 1912 y.
  • V. S. Pustovoit organized an experimental breeding field «Kruglik» at the Kuban Military Agricultural School and began sunflower breeding.

    В.С. Пустовойт организовал опытное селекционное поле

  • — 1924 y.
  • S. V. Rushkovsky developed a method of determining the oil content of seeds by «dry residue», which allowed mass evaluation of breeding material. The development of this method enabled V. S. Pustovoit to identify elite plants with high oil content to develop the variety Kruglik A-41.

  • — 1926 y.
  • Pustovoit became the first person in the world to develop the sunflower variety Kruglik A-41 with an increased oil content of seeds — up to 36%. By developing this variety, he refuted the opinion of some scientists of the time who believed that an oil content of 30-33% is a physiological barrier for sunflower seeds, which is impossible to overcome.

    Впервые в мире создан сорт подсолнечника Круглик А-41 с повышенной масличностью семян – до 36 %.

  • — 1927 y.
  • V. S. Pustovoit established a greenhouse method for evaluating sunflower plants for resistance to broomrape. He found that mass infestation of the variety Kruglik A-41 was due to the emergence of a more aggressive race.

  • — 1928 y.
  • V. S. Pustovoit organized the Armavir testing station of the breeding station «Kruglik» to evaluate breeding material for resistance to the new, more aggressive race of broomrape. Subsequently, the testing station was reorganized into the Armavir experimental station.

  • — 1931–1933 y.
  • Development of the first in the USSR sunflower varieties resistant to race B — Zhdanovsky 6432, Zhdanovsky 8281, Stepnyak.

    Создание первых в СССР устойчивых к расе Б сортов подсолнечника

  • — 1932 y.
  • The All-Union Research Institute of Oil Crops was established on the basis of the breeding station «Kruglik».

    Создан Всесоюзный научно-исследовательский институт

  • — 1954 y.
  • G. V. Pustovoit began work on the interspecific hybridization of sunflower intending to transfer disease resistance traits from wild species to cultivated sunflower, and in 1974, the first two sunflower varieties Novinka and Progress, obtained from the parent material developed by interspecific hybridization, were submitted for State variety trial.

    Начата работа по межвидовой гибридизации подсолнечника

  • — 1972 y.
  • Without undergoing State trial, the world’s first high-oleic sunflower variety Pervenets was included in the State Register, giving rise to a breeding process for oil quality

  • — 1976 y.
  • During the International Sunflower Conference, in collaboration with the International Sunflower Association (ISA), it was decided to establish an international medal named after V. S. Pustovoit and to award it to scientists for outstanding sunflower research.

    На Международной конференции принято решение учредить международную медаль имени В.С. Пустовойта

  • — 1979 y.
  • The first low-linolenic rapeseed variety Kubansky, with increased resistance to oxidation, has been developed.

  • — 1986 y.
  • The laboratory NMR analyzer AMV-1006 for determining the oil and moisture content of seeds has been developed and its commercial production has begun.

    Создан лабораторный ЯМР-анализатор АМВ-1006

  • — 1988 y.
  • A large-seeded sunflower variety SPK was developed and became the forebear of large-seeded varieties and hybrids in Russia.

    Создан крупноплодный сорт подсолнечника СПК.

  • — 1992 y.
  • The world’s first non-erucic mustard variety Slavyanka was developed.

  • — 1995 y.
  • The first variety of a new oil crop is registered — winter brown mustard Suzdalskaya

  • — 2002 y.
  • A new source of variability in soybean plants is discovered — reverse diploid (reploid).

  • — 2010 y.
  • A sunflower hybrid OXY was developed. It has an increased content of beta- and gamma-tocopherols in the oil, which provides high oil resistance to oxidation.

    Создан гибрид подсолнечника ОКСИ

  • — 2013 y.
  • A high-oleic variety of spring rapeseed Amulet was developed. Its oil is similar to the olive oil in its fatty-acid composition.

  • — 2017 y.
  • The world’s first oil flax variety Y 117 that is resistant to flax fatigue was developed.

    Получен первый в мире сорт льна масличного Ы 117

  • — 2023 y.
  • Currently, V. S. Pustovoit All-Russian Research Institute of Oil Crops is the main institution in Russia for breeding, seed production and cultivation technology of oil crops.
