Oilseeds

The grown rapeseed is used to produce oil for food and technical goals. The distinguishing characteristics are low content of erucic acid and glucosinolates which allows using extracted oil for food. Currently, the Company uses Rapeseed only for sale.

The main reasons to enhance production of rapeseed are:

– available and almost unlimited demand markets;

– possibility to increase the range of agricultural commodities through optimization of crop rotation along with improvement of phytosanitary and agro physical land qualities

– opportunity to use rapeseed for production of rape oil as renewable and safe type of fuel.

The rapeseed sowing areas are growing each year. Rapeseed in the crop sowing area for 2012 has 10.2% from total seeded area and 35% from oilseeds sowing territories. In the future the Company plans to maintain strategic balance on rapeseed sowings coming to last 3 years average using at least 30,000 ha of territories for seeding.

The production fits the accepted standards of GOST 10583-76.

Rapeseed varieties are Hunter, Geros, Ubileiniy.

From the day of its creation the Company started producing the oil crops and got a great experience in flaxseed production. Flaxseed is applied in oil production for technical and food needs as flax contains amino acid “Omega-3” or so-called “amino acid of happiness”. The Company doesn’t process flaxseed and due to a great demand for flax the Company is fully export-oriented.

In 2010 oil crops took 40% in the crop rotation structure, they are flaxseed and rapeseed. These crops have a great demand and more stable prices, this fact caused the increase of the seeding area of flaxseed in 2009-2010 from 23,550 ha to 67,590 ha. In 2011 the seeding area of flaxseed counted 20% from the total seeding area and in 2012 – 22%. In future, the Company plans to keep the seeding area of flax up to 35% in the whole crop rotation structure. This caused by high economical efficiency of flax production, great experience in production and sales, logistics, and keen demand at the world market.

Product meets the accepted standards: GOST 10582-76.

Flaxseed type – Northern, INGOT.

Pulses

Pea is a rich source of protein. Pea protein is similar to the meat protein as it contains the row of irreplaceable amino acids (cystine, lethal protein, L-tryptophan, methionine). Also pea contains a lot of ascorbic acid (up to 59 mg%), different sugars (more than 7%), starch (1-3%), vitamins such as C, PP, group B, carotene, cellulose. Nutrient value of pea is higher by factor of 1.5-2 than potato and other vegetables, plus pea is enriched by salts of potassium, calcium, phosphorus and ferrum.

The Company produces pea from 2008, and the seeding area was increased from 200 ha to 9,370 ha. This crop is a good forecrop for the main crops that the Company produces.

Product meets the accepted standards: GOST 28674-90.

Besides, the lentil is abound of carbohydrates, cellulose mineral salts, potassium, phosphorus, and irreplaceable amino acids along with starch, fats, vitamins B1, B2 PP, C. The lentil is the first among pulse crops regarding content of the ferrum.

The lentil is widely used in the food industry for preparation of protein products, sausages etc. Due to abundance of useful properties is broadly used in the folk-medicine. It is a new crop in the crop rotation system, in 2010 initial seeded area was about 119 ha. In 2012 seeded area of the lentil grew to 2,884 ha.

The lentil varieties are Viceroy and Greenland.

Chickpea takes the first place among legumes on nutrient value. It contains the protein within 20.1 – 32.4.

Chickpea is a good source of lecithin, hepatoflavin (Vitamin B2), thiamine (Vitamin B1, nicotinic and pantothenic acids, gossypine). It’s widely applied for food feed aims and also as a raw material for canned-foods and food-processing industry.

The crop was included into crop rotation in 2010 and is produced by Atameken-Agro-Tselinnyi LLP., Atameken-Agro-Korneyevka LLP. In the beginning the seeding area of chickpea was 965 ha.
