The potential productivity of our Kuban varieties of 120 kg / ha is implemented in the best farms of only 70%, and some do not even reach 50% — said Edward Kutygin. — However, the yield at any cost we do not need. In today’s economic environment should be a reasonable approach to the production of any crop that provides increased profitability per hectare. The optimum combination of cost, productivity and quality — the path to economic stability of the enterprise and the industry as a whole. "

Rice breeding in Russia started to develop rapidly in the days of Nikita Khrushchev. It is in the 60’s and 70’s of the last century and was created by a key element of the rice industry infrastructure — irrigation systems that work to this day. In 1980 there was a record for the collection of rice, which is not beaten so far — 1.4 million tons. However, then the acreage of 220 thousand hectares, and yields over 70 t / ha was recorded only in some rice paddies. Today, 70-80 and even 90 kg / ha is not collected with separate checks, and the average for the economy. Came the new technology, high-yielding varieties, excellent technology of domestic and foreign production. Rice breeding with the support of the state is actively developing. The last two years are beginning to Kuban rice export to neighboring countries. High potential Rice makes sure that the rice will soon become the second export crop.
