Research Center


The Research Center of Kursk State Agricultural Academy was organized in September 2020 on the basis of an analytical laboratory and phyto-laboratory that have been operating since 1990-s. To carry out multipurpose scientific researches at various faculties of the Academy, the Research Center is fitted with a set of equipment for performing chemical analyzes of feed, as well as a set of equipment for performing biochemical researches. During many years of operation, the laboratory equipment has been systematically updated and modernized with domestic and foreign tools. From 1990 to 2020, tens of thousands of samples were analyzed in the laboratory. The results of the analyzes were used to write and successfully defend more than 40 candidate and doctoral thesis.

At the present stage of development, the goal of the Research Center is to integrate material, technical, technological, organizational, intellectual and many other types of resources for the implementation of research and teaching and guiding work in various areas: agrochemistry, soil science, crop production, general and private animal science, veterinary medicine, biochemistry, ecology and nature management, examination and quality control of food products.

To achieve the above goal the following tasks must be solved:

  • providing up-to-date research, as well as the provision of services (measurements, researches and testing) on the available analytical equipment in the form of collective use;
  • creation of a unified scientific and technical base for ensuring participation in Federal Target Programs in the areas of scientific activity of the academy, grant programs and the implementation of contracts for research and experimental works;
  • support of research projects of the teaching staff of the departments and faculties of the Academy;
  • increasing the level of loading of the scientific equipment of the Research Center;
  • ensuring the uniformity and reliability of measurements during scientific research on the equipment of the Research Center;
  • participation in the training of specialists and highly qualified personnel (students, postgraduate students, doctoral students) on the basis of modern scientific equipment of the Research Center.

In accordance with the assigned tasks, the Research Center performs the following functions:

  • ensures material, technical and organizational resources for the research and educational activities of the teaching staff of the Academy in various areas with: agrochemistry, soil science, crop production, general and private animal science, veterinary medicine, biochemistry, ecology and nature management, examination and quality control of food products, etc.;
  • provides services (measurements, research and testing) on the available analytical equipment in the form of collective use to interested users;
  • provides a scientific and technical basis for participation in Federal Target Programs in the areas of scientific activity of the academy, grant programs and the implementation of contracts for research and experimental works;
  • performs agrochemical analysis of soil and plant samples at the request of postgraduate students and teaching staff of the Academy, approved by the Vice-Rector for Research and Innovation;
  • serves scientific research performed on the experimental field of the Academy (analysis of soil and plant samples);
  • provides methodological and practical support in organizing an educational process;
  • provides training and consultations for students of the Academy using the equipment of the Research Center;
  • conducts agrochemical and microbiological analyzes of soil for inclusion in scientific qualification works (thesis papers);
  • monitors the status and operation of analytical instruments of the Research Center, carries out timely preparation of control and measuring equipment for periodic state verification;
  • keeps registers in accordance with office work and timely documents the results of analyzes;
  • provides applications for the purchase of chemical reagents, equipment, standard samples, GOST standards, etc.;
  • monitors the use and timely disposal of reagents;
  • implements the introduction of modern educational technologies into the educational process;
  • participates in the organization of research work of the teaching staff, scientific and pedagogical workers and students of the Academy.

The Research Center is managed by the vice-rector for scientific work and innovations of the academy. The staff structure of the Research Center includes the following positions:

  • head of the analytical laboratory;
  • head of the phytolaboratory;
  • senior researcher;
  • junior researcher;
  • microbiologist engineer.
