About the Laboratory

Established in 2013.

Personnel: 6 researchers including 4 Ph.D.

Research directions

  • Search for new efficient chemical crop protecting and crop yield enhancing agents including preparations for optimizing the development of ornamental plants
  • Chemical synthesis of steroid derivatives for testing as plant protecting and antifungal substances
  • New technologies and formulations for agricultural preparations: insecticides, herbicides, fungicides.

Main achievements and developments

  1. Technologies for herbicides "Shkval" and "Taifun", insecticides "Vitan" and "Kerber", fungicides "Echion" and "Laert" are developed and employed by industry. The pesticides are widely used in agriculture.
  2. A multicomponent preparation "Fitovital" for crop enhancing.
  3. Formulation   based  on  the  synthetic sex pheromone of codling moth LP-U for control of the main apple orchard pest - codling moth.
