In Ukraine, the "Analysis of Soil on Pesticide Residues" service is still not very popular among agrarians. As a rule, laboratories are called when a force majeure situation happened on the field: dead bees died, animals were poisoned, people were poisoned, water from the wells became unsuitable for consumption, and others like that.
By the way, the definition of residues of pesticides in different environments is a rather difficult task. Only complex approaches are used to determine the content of pesticides in objects of natural origin, since from a physico-chemical point of view, there is no universal method for detecting all types of chemical compounds by one device.
Among the physicochemical methods, chromatographic techniques are most effective. A very broad list of substances (including those that are physically impossible to transfer into the gas phase) determines a liquid chromatograph with a three quadrupole mass spectrometric detector. It has a high sensitivity, since it allows almost completely eliminate the effect of the matrix of samples, which reduces the sampling procedure and reduces the cost of the analysis.
With the assistance of the USAID Agriculture and Rural Develjpment Support Program in Ukraine (ARDS), the Prime Lab Tech Laboratory (PLT) provides services for analyzing the active substances of chemical preparations used in crop production and defines, by means of a liquid chromatograph, up to 700-900 chemical compounds in one sample.
To find out how dangerous human and animal health can be for cereals, oil crops, vegetables, fruits, berries, other products, soils and water with high levels of pesticides, and which advanced techniques are used to determine their laboratory determination, please contact to the Prime Lab Tech (PLT) Agrochemical Laboratory.

Truffle growing is one of the most exotic areas in modern agriculture in Ukraine. Director of LLC Sunberry Ukraine Oleksandr Dzyga (Vinnytsia region, Tyvriv district, Vasylkivka village) says that at the beginning of his activity he specialized in growing vegetables, namely: cabbage, carrots, table beets, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet pepper and other. Over time, with the accumulated experience, he became interested in growing truffles, which coincided with the acquaintance with Agrochemistry Laboratory Prime Lab Tech (PLT) during a regional seminar in Vinnytsya in the beginning of spring 2018.
On the own enterprise of Oleksandr and the factories that he accompanies, as agroexpert, Oleksanr use only scientific approach. Agronomy is an exact science, says Oleksandr Dzyga. That is why he turned to PLT and commissioned the service - an analysis of the definition of macro, meso and microelements and other indicators in the soil, which was planned under the tabula of the truffle plantation.
The selection of soil samples by PLT agronomists and soil scientists was done on different horizons, up to 0.25 hectares of grid. This approach was due to the small area of field, relief differences (slope) and the specifics of the selected crops. Soil research was done acording to the chemical elements, soil structure, granulometric composition and microbiology (fungi and bacteria), the presence of pests and the study of the species composition of plants. According to the results of the analyzes, the soils were degraded, therefore, it was necessary to improve the physico-chemical and biological characteristics of the soil before laying crops. The preparatory stage involved the treatment of the predecessor (barley seeds) with truffle spores in combination with potassium phosphate-mobilizing bacteria and nitrogen fixators.
On the basis of laboratory tests, recommendations were developed for which the differential input of the necessary nutritional elements was applied, which ensured the cost savings of macro and micro fertilizers from 40 to 50%.
"Such a scientifically weighed approach to the restoration of soil fertility allows for the effective implementation of agricultural land, receive high-quality products and be a successful commodity producer in the Ukrainian market. Choose only professionals for the services of agrochemical analysis of the soil, "- says Oleksandr Dzyga.

The experience of the Organik-D farm: thanks to which you can optimize production costs and don't spend money on unnecessary fertilizers.

Today, almost every farm faces the problem of saving money in the production of agricultural products. Director of LLC "Organik-D" Vadim Krychkovsky, Vinnytsia region., Tyvrivsky district says that at the beginning of his business he took an exhausted land. This problem has had a particularly negative impact on vegetable crops. He decided to go through the Precision Agriculture and apply the organic fertilizers (biohumus Eflient).

It has been prompted the host to learn more about the fields he manages and to do an agrochemical analysis in the modern Lab Prime Lab (PLT).

An integrated approach from soil analysis to fertilization has enabled the farm to gain yields of up to 40% in the first year. This fact prompted further scientific research of his soils. It was the laboratory analysis of PLT that demonstrated the rapid recovery of soil after the application of the biohumus Efluent.

Main result: The deciding factor for agricultural producers - moisture, as shown by the practice correctly and timely introduced biohumus retains moisture on the field. So without watering managed to get friendly stairs of carrots, despite the fact that this spring was unfavorable to vegetable growing. The agronomists know well - if you got a friendly plant shoots - you get a good crop. From sowing (mid-April) to mid-June of this year in the Tyvriv district there was practically no precipitation. But due to a well-considered scientific approach, it was possible to keep moisture at a depth of 30 cm from the surface that gave energy to the growth of the plant (for comparison: in some areas where this approach was not used - the moisture was at a depth of 5-7 cm).

In the autumn of 2018, after harvesting, Vadim Krichkovsky will be obliged to do soil analysis in PLT to seehow many elements plants were delivered from the soil during the year and to draw up plant nutrition scheme for 2019.

In the spring of 2019, he will plan to conduct a soil analysis in the PLT agrochemical laboratory to see the change in soil structure and, if necessary, adjust the work of precision seeding machines to add additional micro-elements.

Since July 25, 2018, the Prime Lab Tech (PLT) Laboratory for Agrochemical Survey of Soils and Plants, with the help of IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, in partnership with the Swiss Confederation, was the first in Ukraine to offer agricultural producers a full range of their services using the Agrarian Statment . The first Agrarian Statement was signed by PLT with LLC "Organik-D", Vinnytsia region, Tyvriv district, v. Sutyski. Courses for future carrot harvest.
As a result of the attraction of the Agrarian Statement, small and medium-sized agricultural producers will receive an instrument that will attract additional financial and logistical resources to purchase the services of the PLT agrochemical laboratory.
PLT offers a full range of services, namely:
• ∙ Selection of plant and soil samples.
• ∙ Agrochemical soil inspection and plant diagnostics.
• ∙ Agrochemical survey of greenhouses and peat soils.
• ∙ Fertilizer analysis.
• ∙ Recommendations for the introduction of fertilizers.
•   Analysis of water for drinking and watering.
• ∙ Seed analysis on quality indicators.
• ∙ Complex of Precision Farming services.
•   Analysis of pesticide residues.

From July 2018, PLT offers a new service "Analysis of Pesticide Residues" (using liquid chromatography). Attracting the grant from the USAID Agriculture and Rural Develjpment Support Program in Ukraine (ARDS) provided PLT with an opportunity to create an independent laboratory to identify residues of pesticides in food, fruits, berries, vegetables, grains, soil, water, etc.
With the help of the analysis of agricultural pesticide residues, the producer will receive:
- Certificate of quality of products at its export.
- International standards of safety of production (Global GAP standards, others).
- Effective quality control of plant protection and fertilizer products.
- Certification from organic production.
- An effective tool for detecting counterfeit and unregistered plant protection products on the territory of Ukraine.
- Improving the level of knowledge, culture and responsibility for the safe use of pesticides in agricultural production.
Today PLT has become a reliable crop management partner for many agricultural producers.

On this day especially important issue has acquired the use of pesticides in agriculture and study the effects of pesticides on natural ecosystems and human health.
In addition to direct purpose, pesticides exert negative impact on the multilateral biosphere, the scale of which is compared with the global environmental factors. The main danger of pesticides is their entry into the biological circle, in the process of which they enter the human body and animals. The most severe toxic effects on humans and warm-blooded animals are pesticides of organochlorine and organophosphorus groups. High stability and organochlorine pesticides tryazynovyh to decay is an important prerequisite for their migration profile of the soil and in the adjacent environment (plants, air, water), which is dangerous for biogeocenosis natural and therefore human existence. Pesticides, trapped on the surface of the soil can leach into deeper horizons and ground water to flow into the water from surface runoff, the second time to appear on the soil surface at the capillary ascent of groundwater or when plowing with the inversion layer, jump into the air as a result of evaporation or dust with wind erosion of the soil, through plants to migrate to the body of animals and humans. It has been shown that herbicides inhibit soil respiration and the process of nitrification.

Pesticides have cumulative properties and can be stored in the soil for 8-12 years after application. That is why it is important to assess the current state of soil contamination with pesticide residues.

June 7-8, 2018 in the town Kirillovka, Zaporozhye region passed the International scientific and practical conference "Agroecological aspects of production and processing of agricultural products".
Within the framework of the conference, PLT's leading agronomist, Volodymyr Gorkutsenko, made a report by topic "Increasing the profit of agricultural enterprise through soil management. Why needs a qualitative analysis of the soil and what to do with its results. "

We thank the organizers and guests of the conference for their great interest and involving discussion.

From May 26 to June 2, 2018, the USAID Project "The Agricultural and Rural Development Support Program in Ukraine" (ARDS) conducted a study visit of the Ukrainian delegation to the Netherlands and Germany to study the experience of the European Union in attracting the private sector to veterinary and phytosanitary control.

12 delegates were represented by the Committee on Agrarian Policy and Land Relations of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food, industry associations and phytosanitary and veterinary laboratories, including representatives of the PLC Agrochemical Laboratory. During the training tour, the participants took part in working meetings with representatives of government agencies in Germany and the Netherlands, industry associations, visited Dutch and German agricultural companies, laboratories and non-state institutions working in the field of horticulture, milk processing, fruit and vegetable production and distribution of planting materials for Agriculture. Some of these non-governmental organizations operate on the principles of self-regulation and, in this process, carry out special functions delegated to them by national governments.

The study visit helped Ukrainian experts learn more about the approaches that could be applied in Ukraine, in particular, on improving veterinary and phytosanitary controls on the safety of agricultural products by involving private laboratories, industry associations and the business community in the process of monitoring.

Laboratory PLT, expanding the range of soil studies. Today, we have the opportunity to offer soil studies both in national and European methods, as well as in US methods. Thanks to modern equipment and highly skilled personnel, you can always be sure of the high quality of services provided.
Considering that more and more agricultural enterprises are beginning to implement approaches to growing crops developed in the USA (which are different from national ones), the PLT laboratory, in turn, has the opportunity to offer research under the tasks of an agricultural producer. For example, the definition of available phosphorus by the method of "Bray P1", Mehlich, Olsen. Their difference from our standardized techniques is the use of a more universal extractant (or a mixture of extractants) that removes mobile compounds in a wider range of soil pH. Complex multivariate research on phosphorus, potassium, calcium, manganese, copper, iron is investigated by the method of "Mehlich-3".
Exact results of laboratory studies, on the basis of which recommendations on optimal crops and fertilization rates are given - your pledge for high yields!

Modern technologies of growing crops require simultaneous soil and plant diagnostics. The analysis of plants in general provides more up-to-date and operational information on the supply of nutrients than agro-chemical analysis of the soil. Ideally, both of these analyzes should complement each other. The analysis of plants, or in the narrower sense of plant diagnostics, shows the actual current content of macro- and micro elements in a plant.

However, the use of the results of plant diagnostics makes it possible to make more informed decisions about setting norms and adjusting the doses, methods and terms of use of fertilizers in order to influence the crop and its quality. Plant diagnostics makes it possible to determine the reserves of total nitrogen in leaves and other organs, the content of phosphorus, potassium and micro elements. According to the analysis of plant diagnostics establish the provision of plants with nutrients.

Guidelines for a raspberry garden program

The fertilizer application depends on the following factors: the texture of the soil, its pH, the presence of organic matter in the gardens. Before planting, it is necessary to conduct soil analysis to determine the number of micro and macro elements, as well as soil pH. It is also necessary to conduct plant diagnostics during vegetation to determine the level of nutrients, as well as to determine the amount of nitrogen and potassium that is washed away from the soil.
Raspberry is usually fertilized by combining four methods: using manure, applying granulated fertilizers, nutrient aqueous solution, and introducing micro elements through the leaves.
For better use of the fertilizer program, it is worthwhile making plant diagnostics on the nutrients for the correct calculation of the fertilizer program. From each bush is taken for 5 mature leaves with cuttings. Then the selected plants are recommended to test in the agro-laboratory for any deviations.

The analysis of plants in general provides more up-to-date and operational information on the supply of nutrients than agro-chemical analysis of the soil. Ideally, both of these analyzes should complement each other. The soil analysis provides information on the amount of nutrients available, but does not answer the question of the effectiveness of plant assimilation. The analysis of plants, or in the narrow sense of the leaf diagnosis, shows the actual current content of macro- and micro- elements in the plant. Data on the concentration of nutrients in a particular culture can be used to identify and eliminate nutritional deficiencies, which in turn will provide a high level of yield.
Spectrum of indicators for leaf material analysis:
• nitrogen content;
• potassium content;
• phosphorus content;
• the content of trace elements (Cu, Zn, Fe, Mn, Mg, Co);
• determination of the levels of provision according to the culture and its development phase (BBCH);
• determination of levels of provision of elements in accordance with the phase of cultural development;
• prevention, detection and elimination of nutrient deficiencies;
• monitoring the level of provision of chemical elements in the growing process to obtain the planned harvest.
Often, leaves are used for analysis, because it is the center of physiological activity. Concentrations of nutrients in the leafy material directly reflect changes in mineral nutrition. Depending on the actual concentration of macro- and micronutrients, establish a deficit, optimum or excessive level.
Interpretation of leaf diagnostic data is usually carried out in the calculation of the concentration of nutrients in the dry matter of leaves or other parts of plants in comparison with the standard values ​​of the concentrations of elements for a particular culture, depending on the phase of ontogenesis.

Acidity of the soil has a very significant effect...

Acidity of the soil has a very significant effect on the formation of the crop of any culture. Excessively low or high pH values ​​adversely affect the root system of plants and block the absorption of certain elements of nutrition.

On soils with low acidity, there is a problem with the absorption of magnesium, calcium, sulfur and molybdenum. On soils that are strong-footed, there is a problem with copper, zinc, manganese, boron and iron.

For each crop there is an optimal index of acidity in which it reveals its potential. For example, for optimal acidity the soybean will fluctuate within 6 - 6.5. With such acidity of the soil, all biological processes are normal. But already on acid soils, the process of fixing nitrogen by a tuberous bacteria is significantly inhibited and the assimilation of some elements of nutrition is blocked.

From the above facts, we must understand that in order to obtain high yields, it is necessary to control and, if necessary, influence the acidity of the soil, which has a significant effect on the yield, of any crop.

Garden planning

Before planning a garden, it's imperative to know the crops that grew up in this area. Good predecessors in this case may be all kinds of cruciferous plants and legumes, but irrelevant are strawberries, raspberries, grapes, tomatoes, potatoes. The area under the bookmark is recommended one year before planting bean and grain crops.

Preparation of the area under the garden bookmark includes a number of operations: laboratory analysis of the soil, improvement of its fertility - fertilization, deep cultivation of soil and preparation of the surface before planting. Soil analysis should be done a few months before planting by taking soil samples. It is best to select ground samples for analysis every 10 hectare from a depth of 30 and 60 cm.

Remember that it is easier and more efficient to make a soil analysis and prepare a plot before planting, than after planting the garden.

We draw your attention to the new services of the PLC Agrochemical Laboratory - a non-metrological analysis of the soil / other substrate and an analysis of pathogens.

Diseases of agricultural crops are a global problem for agricultural producers. After all, they carry not only colossal losses of crops, but also the deterioration of the quality of cultivated products.

In order to avoid or at least minimize the impact of diseases on yields, it is necessary to deal with pathogens or with the diseases themselves. Laboratory analysis will give you a clear algorithm for dealing with these problems. You will know clearly what to fight and what methods.

Having done the analysis, you will save your time, money and crop.

A bit of useful information for all who grow...

A bit of useful information for all who grow apples.

Lack of nitrogen (N) leads to flabbiness of leaves and weak growth of trees. And although lack of nitrogen adversely affects the plant, the surplus can also lead to gross consequences. Nitrogen nutrition should be controlled throughout the growing season. Taking into account that the purpose of young trees is vegetative growth, and already mature is a crop. And the fact that cut trees require less nitrogen. To feed the apple orchards with nitrogen it is better to use fertigation. It is also worth doing nutritious nitrogen on the leaf, to get more flowers and fruits. To spray on a leaf you need a carbamide before flowering.

Since phosphorus (P) is sedentary, it is best to put it under the garden bookmark in large quantities. This will increase the fertility of the deep layers. You need to know how much phosphorus is in the soil. If you want to deal with this problem, you need to do the soil analyzes. In the future, the old gardens feed locally or surface. Layered phosphorus is not recommended.

When potassium (K) is normal, it is well reflected in the size, color and taste of the fruit. It is also an important element for surviving the winter, spring frosts and diseases in general. But this advantage is equal to zero, if the ratio of nitrogen and potassium will be very high.

Low-nitrogen consumption trees such as Mackintosh feel better when the ratio of nitrogen to potassium ranges from 1: 1 to 1.25: 1, whereas high nitrogen grades such as Red Delicious are better at a ratio of 1.25: 1 or even 1.5: 1. If potassium is not enough, we can add it not only to the soil but also to the leaf. To feed on a sheet, use nitrate or potassium sulfate.
Sulfur (S) is seldom fertilized with apple orchards. Exceptionally, there may be sandy soils. Trees consume sulfur in the form of sulphates (SO4).
Low levels of calcium (Ca) are the cause of many problems in the fruit, such as fecundity and rapid rotting during storage. Trees badly absorb calcium from the soil, so it is better to make puff pastry.

Remember that to get high yields and profitability, you need to know the needs of your garden and the needs of each tree.

On the occasion of the great holiday, please, receive the most sincere congratulations with Easter!

We wish you and your family in these spring days to feel the fullness of life, the generosity of the Ukrainian land and the warmth of the family. We wish you health, well-being and success in good deeds!

When we planning and cultivating agricultural crop...

When we planning and cultivating agricultural crops, it is necessary to pay attention to the microelements that are in the soil, especially their level.

The content of microelements in the soil can be determined by agrochemical analysis. This is the most reliable method available for today.

It must be remembered that microelements play a significant role in the formation of high yields. For plants, they are needed in microdoses, but sometimes their presence plays an important role for the final result. Each microcell is important. And each culture has its own requirements for them.

For example, sunflower is very demanding for boron (B). After all, it contributes to increasing the amount of seeds in the basket. But if this element is too much, then the leaves begin to twist and fall, and the flowers are formed by small ones.

Corn is sensitive to zinc (Zn). This microelement improves cold and drought tolerance. If it is not enough, then you should expect such effects as short internodes, decrease in the content of protein and sugar, low cold and drought tolerance, prolonged flowering, deformed seeds.

For winter wheat, one of the most important microelements is copper (Cu) and manganese (Mn). Manganese (Mn) increases the content of sugars in leaves, providing high winter and frost resistance. Copper (Cu) has a positive effect on photosynthesis, the formation of generative organs, contributes to a better assimilation of nitrogen. With a lack of copper (Cu) there is a decrease in stress resistance, disturbed generative development.

We can make a simple conclusion that for the successful cultivation of any culture, attention must be paid to the microelements. Also, control their level in the soil is very important.

An analysis of greenhouse soils helps to assess how well your soil meets the needs of the plants you grow on it. In general, the soil is partially updated annually (for greenhouses) and completely every two years (for shelving greenhouses). The agrochemical analysis will show if it's time to change the soil. Also, based on the results of soil studies, you will be able to understand which elements are lacking and, therefore, what fertilizers need to be made.

Proper use of soils depends largely on the use of fertilizers. The introduction of fertilizers should be strictly linked to agrochemical soil analysis, which should be carried out systematically once a month. For each greenhouse it is necessary to have an agrochemical passport, which records the results of agrochemical analyzes of greenhouse soils, the terms and doses of fertilizers introduced into the culture in the main application and in feeding.

In the PLC Agrochemical Laboratory you can order the physico-chemical and agrochemical analysis of greenhouse soils for the following indicators:
• Determination of moisture content.
• Determination of moisture absorption.
• Determination of moisture content.
• Determination of active acidity.
• Determination of the content of water-soluble phosphorus.
• Determination of the content of water-soluble potassium.
• Determination of the content of water-soluble nitrate nitrogen.
• Determination of the content of water-soluble ammonium nitrogen.
• Determination of the content of organic matter.

The analysis of the soil and the assessment of the...

The analysis of the soil and the assessment of the potential of each field can optimize the technology of cultivation and avoid inefficient use of resources (fertilizers, seeds, plant protection products).

The analysis of soil allows to establish, not only the magnitude of norms and doses of fertilizers, but also the ratio between the elements of nutrition for each culture in a specific field. Determination of soil acidity allows us to develop recommendations for chemical melioration and the selection of effective forms of mineral fertilizers.

Forecast and crop planning depend directly on soil fertility and the availability of nutrients. How to determine and count on it, to support and to make the optimal amount of fertilizers, without spending extra money? This question remains relevant for today.

To solve problem issues, PLT offers a full range of services, namely:
- sampling of soil and plants,
- agrochemical soil survey and plant diagnostics,
- recommendations on fertilizer system, cartograms.

What you sow will reap!
There is already spring now. This means that the start of the sowing campaign is not far off. If you want to get high yields, you need to sow qualitative seeds. This must be known to every agronomist and every farmer.
In addition to the genetic potential, sown seeds should have high levels of similarity and germination energy, which will provide friendly stairs and a good start to get the future harvest. In order to make sure your seed is of high quality, you need to conduct a laboratory analysis of the similarity and germination energy. After all, these indicators are extremely important for a high result in the future.
Remember that a long way to getting a crop starts with seeds.

Modern economic conditions in the agribusiness arena dictate their rules for players, that exist for producers who work on the ground. Rising prices of mineral fertilizers, fuel, seeds and plant protection products are forcing new ways to increase or maintain the profitability of cultivated crops in the fields.
In this article, we will consider one of the options for reducing the cost of mineral fertilizers. And how can their savings save crop yields, culture.
The most reliable method for detecting the amount of nutrients in the soil is its analysis. It gives us important information about the nutrient content in the soil and in what form is nitrogen, phosphorus or potassium. With this information, we can determine which nutrients in the field are in deficit, and which are in excess. After all, the plant will take as much nutrients from the soil as it needs, and not as much as we give it. From here, we can see direct economic efficiency. Knowing the state and the provision of nutrients to the soil, we can make economically sound solutions. It help us spend less on mineral fertilizers and get high yields.

And gather all the yield.

12-13.10.2017 staff of the laboratory Prime Lab Tech was trained at the rate:
"Specialist laboratories in accordance with the requirements of ISO / IEC 17025".
The basis for the formation of a global system of mutual trust in the results of accredited test and calibration laboratories is, first of all, the principle of providing a system of unified requirements for the competence of laboratories. In this regard, the role of a single international standard ISO / IEC 17025, which defines a set of general requirements for the competence of laboratories, without exaggeration can be considered the key to the formation of mutual trust in the test results.
The advantages of laboratory accreditation in accordance with the requirements of ISO / IEC 17025:
- independent and impartial assessment of measurement and test results;
- ensuring the trust of customers in the professionalism and quality of results, strengthening the reputation;
- competitiveness in the professional and legal fields;
- reducing the risk of inconsistencies in the work of the laboratory;
- increase in productivity and coordination of the work of laboratory staff;
- recognition of the results of the analysis at the national and international levels.

"Open Day" of the agrochemical laboratory Prime Lab Tech (PLT), which for the first time in the history of the company's existence took place on September 28, 2017 (Kyiv region Borispol district, Bolshaya Aleksandrovka village, Kievsky Shlyakh street, 115 b ), once again showed that the agrarians are trying to improve their knowledge, communicate, share their successes and exchange experiences.
With the support of the USAID Project "Support to Agrarian and Rural Development" and with the aim of raising the level of education for owners and agronomists of agrarian enterprises in Ukraine, the doors of the PLT agro-laboratory were opened.
Especially we would like to mention the speech of Sergey Nikolaevich Shupik, the director of the department of agro-industrial development of the Kyiv regional state administration, who told about the basic principles of the signed 05.09.2017 y. Memorandum of cooperation between the PLT and the Department of Agro-Industrial Development of the Kyiv Regional State Administration, namely: The implementation of effective forms of cooperation aimed at ensuring the development of rural areas, strengthening the motivation of rural communities in the development of social infrastructure and creating new jobs, raising the level of knowledge, attracting and implementing investment projects, development of partnerships between the authorities, business and social partner.
The highlight of the "Open Door Day PLT" event was an interesting and informative presentation by a special guest of the event, David Dunn, the head of the Soil Testing Laboratory at the University of Missouri-Delta Center, Portageville, Missouri : "The role of an integrated program in managing soil fertility in lucrative crop production by the example of farms (Missouri, America)". A lively discussion as well as a question-and-answer session did not leave anyone indifferent.
The presentation of the laboratory itself was of great interest, namely: Demonstration of modern up-to-date equipment and techniques, which determine the main indicators of the agrochemical composition of soil and plants. Using the example of master classes on the main technological processes, one could see firsthand the laboratory's power and the process of sampling the soil on specially equipped automatic samplers Wintex 1000 - quad bike Bombardier and Mitsubishi L200.
We are grateful to all the participants of the event for their active position in discussing difficult economic and technological issues and we wish you high yields, worthy incomes and satisfaction from work!
