At the invitation of the Thai side, from 27 November to 2 December 2017 Joint delegation of the RUDN University and Plekhanov Russian University of Economics visited to the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives of Thailand.

At the invitation of the Thai side, from 27 November to 2 December 2017 Joint delegation of the RUDN University and Plekhanov Russian University of Economics visited to the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives of Thailand.

The purpose of the work trip to Thailand was to discuss the aspects of scientific cooperation and joint research in the field of agricultural land use, land reform and sustainable development of rural areas.

The Secretary General of the Committee of the reform of agricultural land tenure, Mr. Surajit Itarachit met with the delegation of representatives of two famous universities of Russia. During the meeting they had opportunity for presentation of their reports and exchange of views with employees of the Ministry of sustainable development of territories, land valuation, natural resources, pollution damage to the environment in the process of economic activity.

It should be noted that the main objective currently in Thailand land reform is to implement the ideas of sustainable development, reducing the gap in incomes of the population by granting land to poor citizens. At the same time solved the problem of the preservation of agricultural lands and their protection, creation of groups of farms to work more effectively, as well as the production of high quality, environmentally friendly and safe agricultural products with access to 100% organic farming.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives of Thailand organized a visit to the Regional Agricultural Land Reform Office (ALRO) and farms in Chonburi province (100 km from Bangkok), which received public lands at different times (4 months back and 10 years ago.)

They also visited to the training center for the training and education of farmers in the province of Chachoengsao (80 km from the capital). During the meetings with farmers and experts our delegation had the opportunity of study experience and practice of project management for infrastructure development, promotion and support of modern forms and methods of land use management on the principles of «green» economy.

The idea of preparing and publishing in Thai and Russian languages a manual for farmers on sustainable development of the territory, writing joint articles and participating in international conferences on the above problems caused the mutual interest.

The Thai side expressed interest in further development of cooperation and readiness to visit RUDN University in 2018.

RUDN soil scientists developed a new method for assessing soil fertility

RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.

RUDN University chemists proposed a way to reduce three times the temperature for the oxidation of alkanes

RUDN University chemists and their colleagues from the Russian Academy of Sciences have proposed new catalysts that allow to reduce the temperature of the oxidation reaction of alkanes three times — from 150 to 50 degrees. This significantly reduces the cost of synthesizing alcohols, aldehydes and other compounds needed, in particular, for the production of nylon and capron.
