At the invitation of the KWS company, the students of the Department of Plant Growing and Meadow Ecosystems visited the KWS Field Experimental Station and the Center of Agricultural Competencies in the Lipetsk region. The trip completed the KVS RUS educational program, which started in Timiryazevka in February this year.
J test station KWS conducts breeding work to develop new varieties and hybrids and adapt them to Russian conditions. Tests are being carried out on more than 7000 plots sown with seeds of sugar beet, winter rye, spring barley and wheat, potatoes and sunflowers. In breeding work, the latest biotechnologies are used, which make it possible to create hybrids with higher yields, sugar content and resistance to diseases and pests.
Based on the results of the training, students will be selected for practical training at the experimental station of KVS RUS LLC in the Lipetsk region and at enterprises in Germany. Also, upon completion of the training course, six of the most active and interested students will receive personal scholarships from the KWS company.
