Republican Forest Selection and Seed Center


The history of Agency "Republican Breeding and Seed Production Center" begins with the formation in 1947 of the Republican forest seed station in the village of Shchomyslitsa, Minsk region. The main functions of the station were to determine the planted quality of seeds harvested by the forest companies of the industry, as well as to monitor the status of the forest seed in the forestry institutions of the industry.

The transition of forest seed production to the breeding base began in the 50s of the last century, a selection inventory of the forest fund was carried out, as a result the best representatives of trees and plantings were identified by their external indicators and by productivity, to which the plus category was assigned. In the late 1960s, the first-order FSO (the first genetic level) was started from the progeny of plus trees.
