Teaching

(Scientific Leader of the Post-graduate course preparation),main themes:
  • Theoretical principles of designing of the rotary tilling machines;
  • Mechanical and technological principles of rototilling of tussocks,sod and arable lands including hard solonetz soils also soils with small stones as well as wet and flooded soils in rice plots;
  • Methods of determination of agrotechnical indices,force and power characteristics of rototillers and combined machines working tools;
  • Methods of selection of optimal parameters of rototillers with horizontal or vertical axis of rotation;
  • Power balance of rototilling machine-and-tractor units;
  • Peculiarities of express renovation of grasslands in different zones of USSR(radical,surface,strip grass interseeding as well as on steep slopes);conservation tillage,minimal tillage methods;
  • Mechanical and technological principles of improving semi-desert and desert pastures with use of combined machines;
  • New technology of forages harvesting including corn grain overcrushing in field conditions.

During the period of 1975-1994 nine post-graduates prepared and successfully defended their dissertations (candidate techn.sciences, Ph.D) under the author's leadership.

Since 2007 - present, there are two post-graduates who are preparing their dissertations under the author's leadership.

Research Projects

(as The Scientific Leader and Principal Investigator)
  • Working out of perspective technologies for grasslands improving in different soil-climatic zones of the USSR(1976-1980).
  • Working out of technologies and mechanization for radical and surface improvement natural grasslands in the main zones of USSR(1981-1985)
  • To develop and introduce perspective technological processes of forage production,harvesting and storage depending on zones of USSR on the base of complex mechanization and automation of mobile and stationary processes (1986 - 1988).
  • To develop a new generation of forage harvesting complexes on the base of integral all-purpose power unit UES"Polesje" (184...206 KW) as well as a full set of multioperational automated machines to it for forage harvesting,grasslands renovation and other agricultural and communal works(1988 - 1995).
  • To develop a new generation of forage harvesters for present multistructural farming systems including private and family farms:mounted and trailed forage harvesters to the reversible integral tractors and power units with engines of 22...45 KW, 60...74 KW ,110...160KW (1991...1997).
  • Working out of projects of optimal forage production system for family dairy farms (10..50 cows) with use of own forages production and machinery cooperative service(1992..1994).
  • To work out and realize the Program of Union State (Russia-Belarus) for creation new complexes of quick-replaceable machines in order to realize a new "pulling-energetic" concept of disengaged power-unit of 200-450 HP with complexes of module-type machines for main crop harvesting (forages, grasses, grain, corn, sugar-beet, potatous) also with combined aggregates for tillage and seeding for one pass including the combined aggregates for grasslands renovation (2006-2009). The executive director of this Program of Union State.
  • Purposeful Programmes of the realization of the eight priority directions (12.1...19.8) of creating new generation progressive resources saving technologies and agricultural machinery for radical modernization of USSR Agro-industrial complex in 1989-1995(Co-leader)
