The cooperation between Timiryazev Academy and the Foundation for the Commercialization and Implementation of Agricultural Technologies of the Republic of Korea was launched last year. Our scientists gave an assessment of the current state and development prospects of individual segments of the agri-food market in Russia at the major international forum KOREA SEED EXPO 2020 where they were invited by the Korean side. Cooperation continued, and now joint work will be carried out to assess the latest Korean system for year-round outdoor strawberry cultivation, as well as this crop will be adapted to Russian soils. The experiment will be carried out on the basis of the educational, scientific and production center of RSAU-MTAA "Vegetable Experimental Station named after V.I. Edelstein ". Following the meeting, the Dean of the Faculty of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture Agamagomed Radjabov emphasized that the project is interesting from a scientific point of view. Its results will be used in the educational process and in research of graduate students of the Horticulture and Landscape Engineering faculty.
