The President examined a technological process and products of the enterprise.
The activity of the cluster is expanding. New capacities appeared on the territory of the complex. A modern laboratory for the study of soil fertility on the lands of the cluster, equipped with advanced German technologies, was launched. It can analyze soil composition for more than forty indicators and water for about ten indicators.
Compared to other regions, Bukhara Region has a higher level of salinity of sown lands. Therefore, it is very important to analyze the soil to improve fertility. The laboratory examines the chemical composition of the soil, determines the need for plants in minerals and organic fertilizers. The properties and salinity of the soil are being studied. Based on the results, measures are taken to normalize its composition.
The collected data is uploaded to the “Agro Smart Map Uz” platform, another project of the enterprise. Based on these data, farmers receive the necessary agro-technological recommendations.
The President got acquainted with the capabilities of the laboratory. The information about the upcoming projects of the “Bukhoro Agrocluster” was presented.
