Dear colleagues, readers and authors of the journal,

Introduction of scientific development in agricultural production is restrained in many respects by the limited amount of the information channels enlightening new agrarian technologies. At the same time in the departments of higher education institutions, in scientific research institutes laboratories and in other scientific divisions there are perspective developments for the real sector of economy. Our journal is aimed at giving chance for such developments and ideas to be realized.

The main scientific directions of the journal are the directions connected with agricultural production.

The editorial council of the journal hope that on its pages scientists-agriculturalists can present their scientific ideas and innovative developments which will be useful and interesting both for scientific community, and practical specialists and experts.
