Seeds - this is the main factor for improving the productivity of land!
Scientific-industrial agricultural holding "Kurgansemena" is a producer of elite seeds of grain and legume grain since 1988. The distribution of production goes to more than 30 regions of the Russian Federation and Kazakhstan.
Seeds are the carriers of biological and domestic features of plants, that is why the amount of the future harvest depends of the seeds' quality.
Harvesting features of seeds is an integral sign, which is defined by genotype of the sort, it's growing conditions and modification variability. Putting together selection, production of original and elite seeds, the company has worked out a brand new system of seed industry.
To actualize the whole of the potential of the sort's genotype, we reduce the period from creating the sort to it's realization, from the selection of the elite plants to the realization of seeds.
A short scheme of the primary seed industry, when the nursery garden of 2nd-3rd year is sowed in the industrial quantity, allows us to sell "young" elite seeds with non-spent potential of the genotype,
with high productivity and resistance to diseases.
We distribute a large range of sorts, which provides each region with an opportunity to make the right choice.
The growing conditions are of great importance, too.
In the industrial households, in the process of seed production from the first reproduction to the following ones, the potential of the sort is getting lower every year. In the process of resowing more admixtures are gained, low-harvest forms appear, more diseases occur and the sensibility to them rises. We process this factor in terms of sort agrotechnology: we investigate the soils annually, aseptisize the seeds, use mineral fertilizers, growth stimulators and microelements, control the pollution, provide field protection from parasites and diseases.
These are huge expenses to the agricultural company, but they turn out as a bargain for our clients. Buying seeds, grown according to our scheme - is a low cost and the most effective means of improving the harvest capability.
Scientific - research center of the company today is:
- running primary seed industry on classical scheme by individual-family selection
- sorting agrotechnology which allows the development of agricultural technical passports for region-specific and perspective sorts of grain and legume grain
- cooperation with the leading selection institutions of Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Germany, Canada, international centers CIMMYT and KASIB
- 200-300 hybrid combinations per year
- more than 20 thousand samples of selectional material
- 20 certificates of origin for forts of wheat, winter rye, winter triticale, barley, buckwheat, parennial grasses;
- 8 patents for wheat sorts:
Omskaya 35, Omskaya 36, Omskaya 38, Boyevchanka, Gerakl, Uralosibirskaya (in cooperation with Siberian Scientific-Research Institute of Agriculture), Tobolskaya (in cooperation with Altay Scientific-Research Institute of Agriculture), Chernozemnouralskaya 2 (in cooperation with Voronezh Scientific-Research Institute of Agriculture), and sorts of field pea: Aksayskiy usatiy 55 (in cooperation with Donskiy Scientific-Research Institute of Agriculture and close joint-stock company "Semena Dona"), Zauralskiy 3 (in cooperation with Siberian Scientific-Research Institute of Agriculture), Ruslan ( in cooperation with Krasnoyarsk Scientific-Research Institute of Agriculture)which have been included in the registry of achievements in selection in 9 regions of Russian Federation, as well as in the Northern parts of Kazakhstan.
Each year new perspective sorts of grain and legume grain are given to the Federal testing systems of Russia and Kazakhstan.
