PhosAgro assists Russian agricultural education
As part of the Russian agro-industrial exhibition “Golden Autumn 2020”, PhosAgro presented the company’s projects in the field of training highly qualified young personnel for agriculture.
Zhanna Shalimova, the Head of digital marketing and e-commerce of PhosAgro, noted that the company is actively developing cooperation with leading specialized universities in the field of innovations in agricultural education.
“We are implementing projects aimed at providing students with relevant knowledge necessary to apply the most advanced technologies in practice,” said Zhanna Shalimova. “Russian State Agrarian University soon launches the first scientific and practical center of the PhosAgro company. Especially for this center, we have developed a course of lectures which will be broadcasted in other agricultural universities as well. Thus, the best practices will be studied in all agricultural regions of Russia.”
Zhanna Shalimova also added that the company not only contributes to the implementation of innovative digital technologies in agricultural education but also participates in the digitalization of the Russian agro-industrial complex.
“PhosAgro is reputed to be a market pioneer in many ways. Last year, we became the first company in the industry that ran an online fertilizer trading platform. Now, both small farms and large agricultural holdings can order the necessary fertilizers just in one click, as well as to receive personal recommendations on the selection of the optimal plant nutrition system,” said Zhanna Shalimova.
“This is a great help to agro-industrial complexes and farmers in the countryside. This is the possibility of proper planning, reducing costs, and increasing production volumes,” said Mikhail Mishustin, Prime Minister of Russia, and added that digital technologies would help to make “bread to be even fresher, fruits and vegetables tastier and environmentally friendlier.”
