AGROBIOLOGICAL STATION

The agrobiological station forms an educational and experimental foundation for training sessions and field trips with students of the Biology and Chemistry Department and the Agricultural Department (internal and correspondence divisions). It also serves as a resource for GASU teachers, post-graduate students, and students conducting scientific research.

The agrobiological research station provides the corresponding university departments with natural hand-out and demonstration materials.
∙ Vegetable growing;
∙ Department of berries and horticultures;
∙ Department of biology techniques;
∙ Collection site;
∙ Decorative department;
∙ Department of rare and disappearing plants;
∙ Collection of herbs;
∙ Collection of forage crops;

The maintenance, direction, and volume of work of each department of the agrostation is defined by the curricula and research work plans of the corresponding departments: plant growing, agrochemistry and protection of plants, botany, phytophysiology, as well as characteristics of agricultural production.
