In the Krasnodar Territory, the yield of sugar beet in 2022 increased by more than 60 centners per hectare compared to the previous year and amounted to 566 centners per hectare. Sugar production also increased. And while domestic breeders are developing highly productive hybrids as part of import substitution, beet growers continue to optimize technologies to increase profits.
One of the largest Russian agricultural holdings, which occupies a leading position in the production and processing of sugar beet – Dominant Group (the main assets are concentrated in the Krasnodar Territory, as well as in the Altai Territory, Lipetsk and Tambov Regions) is studying the experience of the largest Russian distribution network of mineral fertilizers PhosAgro -Region (PhosAgro Group) to improve the efficiency of fertilizer application. The specialists of the companies agreed to hold joint seminars, where they will discuss the best options for the mineral nutrition of sugar beets this season. In the Krasnodar Territory, the network is represented by the regional company PhosAgro-Kuban.
— We cooperate productively with regional companies PhosAgro-Region. In addition to the supply of fertilizers, partners advise us on issues related to the rational use of mineral fertilizers to obtain high, high-quality and healthy crops,” said Alexander Garmash, chief regional agronomist at Dominant Group.
– Sugar beet production belongs to the category of technically complex industries, it is a kind of litmus of the enterprise’s intellectual potential. It is valuable for us to present our achievements in this area, which can provide agribusiness with a high margin. In general, the efficiency of fertilizer application is constantly in the focus of our agronomic service, and we are pleased that our many years of experience are in demand in such large and technologically advanced companies,” said Pavel Chekhlan, Director of PhosAgro-Kuban.
This year, Dominant specialists plan to conduct experiments on the use of PhosAgro mineral fertilizers on sugar beets and soybeans in order to determine the most effective types, methods and dosages of application in dry years and high soil acidity.
