At the Armavir experimental station of V. S. Pustovoit All-Russian Research Institute of Oil Crops, research work began in the spring of 1929 on the initiative of Vasily Stepanovich Pustovoit.

The specialists’ tasks include fundamental, exploratory, and applied scientific research, experimental and development work, and the introduction of scientific achievements and best practices aimed at obtaining new knowledge in the sphere of the agro-industrial complex, contributing to its technical, technological, economic, and social development.

The Armavir experimental station produces and sells sunflower and soybean seeds, market products of crops, as well as processed products and industrial waste.

The main directions of breeding and scientific work

  1. Development of new breeding methods and development on their basis of highly productive, competitive, and resistant to the main pathogens and abiotic stressors of hybrids and varieties of oil crops adapted to different soil and climatic zones of the Russian Federation.
  2. Development and implementation of high-precision, ecologically acceptable, economically efficient, resource-saving technologies of primary and industrial seed production, technologies of market production of oil crops.
  3. Development of highly precise, ecologically acceptable, economically efficient, resource-saving technologies for primary and industrial seed production, technologies for marketable production of oil and essential-oil crops for different soil and climatic zones of the Russian Federation.
  4. Development and implementation of mechanization means for cultivation, harvesting, and postharvest treatment of seeds of oil and essential-oil crops.
  5. Scientific support for the production of original, elite, and reproduction seeds of oil crops, for the production of genetically pure seeds of sunflower lines and hybrids.

The laboratory conducts research in the field of breeding and seed production of oil crops and the development of certain elements of their cultivation technology. The main task of the laboratory is to develop highly productive varieties and hybrids of confectionery and oil sunflower with a high oleic acid content, resistant to main diseases and broomrape, tolerant to sulphonylurea and imidazolinone herbicides, adapted to adverse environmental factors, with improved morphometric indicators.

The laboratory aims to develop new competitive varieties of soybean using classical and molecular-genetic methods. Varieties with a complex of important breeding traits, with high yield and grain quality, with increased resistance to abiotic and biotic stress factors, lodging resistance, and tolerance to diseases. The scope of activities of the laboratory also includes the development of new and improvement of traditional methods and technical means of ensuring the breeding and seed production process.

About branch

Director Zaitsev Nikolay Ivanovich Doctor of agriculture

At the Armavir experimental station of V. S. Pustovoit All-Russian Research Institute of Oil Crops, research work began in the spring of 1929 on the initiative of Vasily Stepanovich Pustovoit. The history of sunflower breeding at the Armavir experimental station is closely linked with the name of Vasily Ivanovich Scherbina, a talented plant breeder.

Already in 1933, the first sunflower varieties were introduced into production. The variety Armavirsky-1646, sent in 1937 for the State variety trial, was cultivated until the early 1980s, and the variety Armavirsky-3497, developed from Armavirsky-1646 in 1953, was produced until 1995. This variety occupied the maximum crop acreage in the country, exceeding 1 million hectares per year.

Currently, the team is successfully engaged in population breeding and seed production of varieties Foton, Pilot, and Kalibr, as well as heterosis sunflower breeding and seed production of hybrids Natalie, Iren, Arneb, Aris, Arlin, Amelie, Aurus, which are in constant demand among agricultural producers. In addition, the station is successfully engaged in soybean breeding and seed production of Duar, Duniza, Vestochka, Zara, Kora, and Parus varieties, which compete well with seeds of foreign suppliers in the Southern Federal District.

The branch also develops elements of cultivation technology for soybean and winter rapeseed.
