Republican Forest Selection and Seed Center

Research department

The main function of RD is to carry out scientific research in the field of forestry, mainly in the field of forest selection, seed production, growing of planting material.

In this connection, in April 2013, a biotechnology laboratory was created on the basis of RFSSC, which is engaged in the development of innovative technologies for the production of planting material of economically and genetically valuable plants and microclonal multiplication of plants in vitro.


The laboratory makes microcleaning:

Tall blueberries: varieties:

  • Denis Blue,.
  • Northland.
  • Northblue.
  • Bluecrop.
  • Elizabeth.
  • Patriot.
  • Earlyblue.
  • Duke.
  • Weymouth and a number of others.

  • Large fruited cypress (Cupressus macrocarpa);
  • White Cedar "Globosa";
  • White Cedar "Columnaris".


  • Karelian birch (Betula pendula Roth var. Carelica).


Conifer forest-forming species:

  • European fur-tree.

The laboratory includes 3 rooms. The autoclave and washing room is equipped with all necessary equipment for sterilizing dishes and preparing nutrient media.

The laminar and cultural room is designed for introducing plants into the cultivation invitro and directly for micro-engraving. Laminar-boxes are designed for work in sterile conditions.

In the adaptation room, the plants are landed in peat and adapted to the ex vitro conditions

Microclonal propagation of tall blueberry saplings is carried out.

Main functions of the department:

  • implementation of scientific and technical relations with other organizations on forest seed management, forest nursery and reforestation;
  • study, generalization, propaganda and implementation of scientific and technical developments, advanced domestic and foreign experience in the field of forest seed production, forestry business, forest nursery and reforestation;
  • development of recommendations, methodologies and manuals, improvement of existing state standards and other normative and technical documents in the field of forestry, forest seed production, forest nursery and reforestation.
