PROBLEM DESCRIPTION & MARKET NEED Depending on weather conditions productivity of grain crops in the world varies on years on 25 % and more, and world reserves of a grain - 60 %; Stability of plants to abiotic (soil, climate, weather) and biotic (biological components of agrarian ecological system) stresses of an environment - the most infrequent category in flora; Increase of stability of agricultural crops to ecological stresses is included since 1977 in the list of the major problems of the National Academy of the USA. 1.

Power intensity of gross domestic product in the world, kg (conventional product) / US $ The cost price of production in Ukraine and Russia is some times higher, than in the World. 2. INEFFICIENCY
The world has changed cardinally, cost of energy rises, change of technologies No-Till. Entry into WTO and competitiveness. Ukraine and Russia have natural resources which are of interest of the global capital. According to information of the United Nations they are estimated in 30,0 trillion US $. Natural resources of the USA - 8 trln. $ China - 6,5 trln. $ Europe - 0,5 trln. $ INEFFICIENCY
3. PROSPECTS Transient world reserves of wheat next marketing year will be descend to the lowest level and will amount 119 million tons; Forecast of the International Grain Council (IGC): world wheat production in will amount 594 million tons; Use of the Ukrainian plant growth regulators on 10 % of world fields of a winter wheat (22,4 million ha) would allow to receive in addition 11 million tons of a grain at the cost of 1320 million $. Today in Ukraine use of growth regulators amount 1 million ha.

PLANT GROWTH REGULATORS OF NATURAL ORIGIN BIOLAN, EMISTIM C, RADOSTIM HAVE A WIDE SPECTRUM OF USING ON 25 AGRICULTURAL CROPS Biotechnology of micromicetes cultivation from root system of ginseng 5 patents Root of ginseng Micromicetes Scientific plant BRIEF TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION
Synthetic plant growth regulators - analogs of phytohormones - used for seed treatment and crops sprinkling of vegetables, flowers and technical cultures.
COMPOSITION PLANTS GROWTH REGULATORS Agrostimulin Biosil for sugar beet for corn for sunflower, rape Radostim for seed treatment for root system development BRIEF TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION Biomax Betastimulin Zeastimulin Treptolem Charcor for cereals, leguminous and perennial herbs
STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT Complex research of the mechanism of physiological action and of physical, chemical and toxicological properties was conducted. The technologies of production and application of PGRs in agriculture and forestry were developed. The new PGRs were registered in Ukraine (12 items), Republic of Belarus (6), Russia (1), Kazakhstan (4) and Germany. The pilot production of new PGRs was created.
ADVANTAGES PGRs are characterized by high efficiency, low doses of using (10-20 ml per 1 ton of seed or 1 hectare of sowing) and ecological safety (1 m 2 of sowing gets 1·10 -9 g of active substance). The technologies of their application coincide with existing agromethods. The harvest of the basic agricultures is increased on % and the quality of plant products is improved.
Joint treatment of seed with PGRs and pesticides allows to reduce the doses of sowing pesticides on % without lowering of the protective effect. New PGRs decrease the contents of radionuclides, ions of heavy metals and nitrates in agricultural products. Our PGRs have antimutagenic effect. The cost of dose per 1 hectare is $ Putting $ 1 in technology is repaid by $ of additional agricultural products. ADVANTAGES
EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS PGRs used for pre-sowing treatment of seeds in doses ml per 1 ton and for sprinkling of crops in doses ml per 1 hectare Their application costs $ US per 1 hectare. Application of growth regulators makes possible to improve quality of agricultures and to get additional harvest (tons/ha): wheat grain, barley, rice ……….0.7 sugar ……….0.9 green mass of corn … grain of corn ……….0.9 potatoes ……….3.5 sunflower ……….0.4 vegetables … grape …
We have taken knowledge from the Nature and have created ecologically safe plant growth regulators. And now we want to help the Nature with our technologies. WHY IT BECAME POSSIBLE? Dependence DOSE - EFFICACY help us to create composition formulation for different plants and technologies
Sampling by the agronomist Calculation of sprouts Determination of photosynthesis Control 20 ml per 1 ton of seeds Seed processing by Agrostimulin has allowed to receive in 2002 extra 16.7 % (11.1 cwt/ha) of a qualitative wheat grain AGROSTIMULIN IN GERMANY. WINTER WHEAT SEED TREATMENT, 2004
