Joint delegation of the RUDN University and Plekhanov Russian University of Economics visited 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.

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.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

Mowing Is More Harmful to Soil Than Grazing

A team of biologists analyzed soil samples from a pasture and a regularly mowed meadow and found out that grazing lets more carbon get into the soil than mowing. This, in turn, improves the carbon cycle and makes microorganisms more efficient.
