VEGETABLE CROPS

Principal research directions:
- screening of cultivar and hybrid model of tomatofortaste, tolerance to biological and abiotic factors, suitability fruits for drying;
- development of methods for source material for the creation of heterotic hybrids of tomato and sweet pepper with a set of economic indicators for the conditions of greenhouses;
- explore is sues of sustainable vegetable production in the permanent and growings hort rotation under different levels of fertilizer while maintaining soil fertility;
- creation of winter garlic cultivars that are resistant to common diseases, selection of initial local forms of high content of essential oils and selenium for pharmaceutical purposes;
- saving technologies of production, processing and storage of edible mushrooms.

Main achievements:
- new cultivars and heterotic hybrids of vegetable plants have been created and those resistant to adverse biological and abiotic environmental factors, their fruits are characterized by high taste and chemical-technological properties, are suitable for industrial processing: now more than 25 varieties of vegetables, bred at the department have been entered into Registering Book of the Plant cultivars of Ukraine.
