Drainage and moistening system

(Poddubsky A. A., Shuravilin A.V., Dokukin P.A., Gurina R. R., Kalayjyan C.)

The invention relates to the field of agriculture and can find application in the irrigation of small areas due to the accumulation of local runoff and drainage water. Drainage and moistening system contains a drainage network joined with the containment pond 5 of the drainage, the drainage pump station 7 connected through a fine water filter 8 to the network of water distribution pipelines 9 connected to irrigation pipelines 10 with water drip emitters 11. The containment pond 5 is equipped a protective screen 6. Screen 6 is made of a number of panels of lighttight membrane material, one edge of which is mounted on floats of adjacent cables and other quick couplings connected to the adjacent material web. Through the line of quick-disconnect joints, the panels are fastened with bayonet joints in the form of bolts with axial holes and nuts. The system allows to reduce evaporation water losses from the surface of the containment pond and reduce the amount of dead water in it, as well as improve the reliability of the fine water filter.

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.

Soil scientists suggest method for remediating urban garden soils contaminated with lead and arsenic

The soils of urban gardens and vegetable patches contain a lot of toxicants (including lead and arsenic) in high concentrations which can be harmful to the health of children and people with chronic diseases. A team of soil scientists from RUDN University suggested a remediation method developed based on data collected in a garden of Brooklyn (NY, U.S.).
