TYPES OF RESEARCH DEVELOPMENTS:
Draft concept of agriculture based on agro-ecosystems of sustainable bioenergy in different soil and climatic zones.The concept of modern agrarian production includes the development and implementation of an adapted to the specific conditions of economy of the sectoral structure of bioenergy production in order to increase its competitiveness. Advantages of transition to bioenergy system of agricultural production are:
• realization of agroresource potential of farms with simultaneous production of 1 ha 0,8-1,0 thousand m3 / ha of methane gas, 1 and more t / ha of meat and dairy products (in all soil and climatic zones), 1 t / ha of sugar (for the Forest Steppe), 0.2-0.3 t / ha of oil and tomato juice (for the Steppe);
• Exclusion from the agro-ecosystems of only air components: carbon (C), oxygen (O), hydrogen (H), nitrogen (N) in the composition of carbohydrates, fats, proteins and hydrocarbons, in addition there is a reduction of CO2 gases up to 10 t / ha ;
• transition to the principles of organic farming and production for the creation of a closed cycle of macro and microelements with the economy of purchase of mineral fertilizers up to 300-400 kg dg / ha, systematic disinfection of all biomass; • improving the environmental status of the environment by optimizing the structure of agro-landscapes, reducing soil degradation and desertification processes;
• increasing the employment of rural population to the level of 5-10 people for every 100 ha of arable land;
• achievement of energy independence of agricultural production and rural settlements;
• 2-fold reduction in the cost of production by saving agrochemicals, industrial energy resources and transportation costs; • Receive annual gross income in the range of $ 10 thousand. /ha.
Model bioenergy agroecosystem (for example steppe)
The development of agricultural production projects (business plan).
The development of modern low-cost and cost-effective technologies for growing crops, for example, under conditions of irrigation and drainage, selection of profitable crops for different soil and climatic zones, advice on cultivation of rare fruit and bioenergy crops and so on.
Modern information technologies:
• universal information-analytical computer complex “Agroresurs” planning and agricultural production;
• software “Spatial assessment moisture conditions in Ukraine with current climate change” and “Assessment of agrometeorological conditions for crop growing season”;
Spatial estimation moisture conditions in Ukraine 50-year period
• automated system “Adaptation technologies of growing crops to provide agrometeorological in different soil and climatic zones”;
State tests of agrochemicals. The Institute of Water Problems and Reclamation is included by the Ministry of Natural Resources of Ukraine in the network of research institutions, which are granted the right to conduct state tests of agrochemicals
Agrochemical maintenance fertilization on farms for their savings.
