Department’s Research Profile:

  1. Studies on the productivity of major forage crop species used for the production of protein and energy feed;
  2. Assessment of the nutritional value of feed components;
  3. The development and improvement of agri-technology of major domestic legume species and their mixtures with cereals and soya;
  4. Development and improvement of agrotechnology for maize and sorghum in different cultivation systems, using preservation systems;
  5. Improvement of the technology for the production of feeds from grasses and their mixtures with small-seeded legume plants;
  6. Assessment of the physiological state of fodder plants depending on stress factors (abiotic stress) and agrotechnical treatments applied;
  7. Searching for possibilities of increasing the effectiveness of biological binding of nitrogen by legume plants;
  8. Development and improvement of agrotechnology of intensive and local forage crop species and varieties under conditions of organic farming;
  9. Research on the efficiency of the use of fodder area depending on the size of the cow herd and the natural, organisational, and economic conditions.


  1. Advisory service on the cultivation technology of the most important fodder plant species depending on the use direction.
  2. Expertise and evaluation of pesticides applied in the cultivation of fodder crops.
  3. Training on organic and integrated fodder crop technology and production of bulky and concentrated fodder.

Research equipment
