The main crops in the crop rotation systems are rapeseed, triticale, wheat, corn, barley, oat, potato, annual and perennial grasses.

The park of agricultural vehicles consists of cultivating tractors New Holland, wheel and crawler tractors of Minsk Tractor Plant, reaper-threshers New Holland and John Deere with rape tables, spinner plows, disk harrows and cultivators as well as seeding complexes and specialized transport vehicles.

Agricultural products are stored at the own grain reception center equipped with the devices for reception, drying, cleaning and storing grain and at the two vegetable stores.


  • The Kaluga Region

A commercial apple garden in the Kaluga Region occupies 364 ha. In 2009-2015 244 ha of new intensive-type gardens were laid out having planting density up to 1,550 trees per hectare. Modern gardening technologies of planting dwarf and semidwarf trees and drop irrigation are used. 500 bee families are kept to effectively pollinate the garden.

A fruit tree nursery with production capacity of 300,000 grafts is laid out in the area of 40 ha and certified. The technology of growing grafts is based on the modern technique of cloning parent layers.

There is a laboratory on clonal micro-propagation of plants, where each plant is nursed out of a single cell. The laboratory and plant nursery complex allow to get up to 300,000 virus-free grafts per year.

Specialized vehicles to work in the nursery were purchased including three-wheeled multifunctional tractors DAMCON HWD-355 produced on the special order by the Dutch company Damcon BV.

When the nursery reaches its designed capacity, the company will get an opportunity to lay out up to 600 ha of new gardens per year
