VNIIMK is a participant of the “Field Day of the South of Russia 2021”
On August 6, 2021, in the Ust-Labinsk district in village Voronezhskaya the eighth annual event “Field Day of the South of Russia” took place at the “Zolotaya Niva” exhibition complex.
This is a significant event among professionals in the field of breeding, seed growing, horticulture, agrochemistry, and agricultural machinery, where the latest developments in the agro-industrial complex are demonstrated. The main goal of the event is to create a platform for live communication between manufacturers and customers, to demonstrate the effectiveness of new technologies.
The guests and participants of the event examined the demonstration sites with sowings of corn, sunflower, soybean, sorghum, and, for the first time, sugar beet of domestic breeding, which offers the possibility to see the advantages of domestic breeding in real conditions.
V.S. Pustovoit All-Russian Research Institute of Oil Crops (VNIIMK) presented its new breeding products at the exhibition of Field Day.
During the examination of the demonstration sowings, the participants highly appreciated the high-yielding soybean varieties (Vilana, Slavia, Irbis, Triada, Vilana beta), promising sunflower varieties and hybrids (VNIIMK 100, Imidzh, Konditer, Belochka, SPK plus, Surus, Immi, Aurus, Gorstar, Revansh and etc.), it was also noted that the varieties and hybrids of the VNIIMK breeding are in no way inferior to foreign ones.
The organizer of the exhibition is NO SRO “National Association of Producers of Corn and Sunflower Seeds”.
All sunflower hybrids are developed using parent material adapted to local conditions. The offered sunflower hybrids are resistant to the complex of the main pathogens (broomrape, downy mildew, Phomopsis blight)
— resistant to diseases, pests and broomrape
— provide a real opportunity for steady receiving of high-quality oil in all climatic zones of crop cultivation
— meet the requirements of modern production to the fullest extent
Meant for cultivation in main and repeated sowings, for replanting other crops, suitable for growing in short-term (2-4 field) crop rotations and monoculture
— non-erucic, low-glucosinolate (type “00”)
— guarantee the production of oil and meal of international standards quality
— have high seed productivity and oil content
The main advantages in comparison with rapeseed is a shorter growth season, high oil content and yellow seed coloring (type “00”)
— source of receiving of edible oil, as well as high-quality mustard powder
— well-adapted to climatic conditions of all cultivation areas
— diverse in agronomic characters
— developed using domestic parent material adapted to various cultivation conditions
— uniform in flowering and ripening
— resistant to Fusarium blight, biotic and abiotic environmental factors
— have a stable yield, good response to high soil fertility
