Pollution of the environment and produce through the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides has given rise to consequences disastrous for mankind.
Research into appreciable alternative methods has lately led to the application of electromagnetic radiation, notably ultraviolet (UV) emission, to both vegetative crops, and cereal, vegetable and potato seeds before planting. It has been established that UV exposure is conducive to higher germinating capacity, speedy ripening, and less blight in the course of growth, thus resulting in higher yields, qual ity, and safer storage.
The UV exposure units developed by the R&D Institute for Ag ricultural Radiology and Ecology, one of which has been patented, make diverse crops impregnable against disease.
UV units are ecologically-friendly and save power. They will have to be further modified to uniformly treat irregular-shaped vegetables, fruit and root crops.
A unique spectrograph, AV ASPEC-2048, will be used to evaluate the contribution of each UV spectrum and dosage towards higher yields and longer storage time.
The project is aimed at developing new engineering solutions in End-product the use of electromagnetic radiation to perfect ecologically-friendly Described technologies for longer crop, vegetable and fruit storage, and fewer losses.
Most research is aimed to improve and safeguard yields, all but disregarding storage which largely relies on chemicals that pollute the environment and affect human health.
Fungicides are effective for longer vegetable and fruit storage, but research suggests that their efficacy degrades over time, for the pernicious pathogens are becoming increasingly immune to them.
We therefore propose alternative technologies that are ecologi cally-friendly and employ physical factors, to wit: exposure of root crops, vegetables and fruit to UV radiation to make their storage life longer.
One important advantage of UV treatment over the conventional methods is its extremely low cost and energy consumption.
We propose commercialising UV units for agricultural crop treat ment before storage.
A Kaluga Region CATALOGUE of R&D Projects in Science and Engineering Our method of crop exposure to UV radiation makes for longer Innovative storage life and fewer losses.
Features One basic effect where new technologies are concerned is market Product able organic produce at low cost in terms of power consumption.
Marketing Extensive research suggests that the use in farming of electro magnetic radiation, notably microwave, UV and laser beams, sees to a hefty 30% increase in cereal, potato and onion yields, to name just a few.
Joint research by US, Israeli, Turkish and Canadian scientists (1994) indicates that different UV spectra exposure after harvest ing decreases losses through rot and increases storage life. Our ex periments under laboratory, vegetation and field conditions in the course of 20 years have enabled us to evaluate the contribution of UV emission to sounder seed, higher cereal and potato yields, and quality (protein, starch).
Historically, produce treatment has largely relied on chemicals. As often as not, these result in flavour fading and carcinogenic chlorine compounds. Currently, thanks to the development of electromagnetic technologies, it has become possible to replace chemical treatment with high-intensity UV radiation.
A microbiological disinfectant, UV radiation does not affect the physical or chemical composition of a product;
its effect is swift and reliable, it is ecologically friendly and safe for the personnel, provided regular procedures are followed.
The basic practical outcome of the results is the use of the new ecologically-friendly bactericide-range UV technology to treat stor age areas and produce, while ascertaining the requisite doses and ensuring the storage conditions.
These UV technological solutions and units are sure to be used throughout Russia’s municipal storage complexes.
Research has been carried out and experimental specimens Current Status tested.
The R&D Institute for Agricultural Radiology and Ecology under the Russian Agricultural Academy has over 5 years been investigat ing the effects of UV exposure on different potato varieties adapted to the Kaluga area’s conditions.
The results suggest that UV exposure is effective against viruses and other pathogens that afflict potatoes. The Institute has developed a technology and unit capable of combining potato exposure to UV before planting with culling before storage.
Work is in progress on evaluating the effect of various spectra and doses on pathogens causing blight and losses.

The current housing construction rage has called for increasingly new sophisticated materials with enhanced physical and mechanical properties in place of the conventional ones. Owing to its unique com bination of mechanical, physical and chemical properties, physically spliced foamed polythene is the order of the day. However, it defies recycling by conventional methods, including by fragmentation, melting and moulding. The waste has to be transported to landfills, with its amount varying within 5–10%.
Sandwich panels for smallsize housing construction with foamed polythene waste filler (OSB waste — foamed polythene OSB) can successfully vie with the conventional plastic-foam sandwich panels.
The line’s productivity would be 1,000 panels a month, totaling an area of 3,300m2.
Production over a two-year period would be on the order of 20thou m2 of sandwich panels, or about 65 cottages with a floor area of 70m2.
The experimental specimens produced suggest that the project is quite tenable, while the raw material whose disposal the suppliers have to pay for makes it cost-effective.
The project’s next stage — graduating from component produc tion to housing construction — would see higher returns and a 4-fold increase in tax money.
A Kaluga Region CATALOGUE of R&D Projects in Science and Engineering End-product Described Sandwich panels for smallsize housing construction with foamed polythene waste filler (OSB-waste foamed polythene-OSB) have the same heat conductivity factor as those made of plastic foam. Its flexural and shear strength is higher than that of the conventional panels. This heat insulation material is not readily flammable. When it does burn, it produces no burning melt. This material is ecologi cally-friendly and certified by sanitary bodies. Incidentally, foamed polythene is used for children’s toys and rugs. It repels mice, unlike plastic foam.
