Additional comments
State Enterprise "Experimental Plant" RUE "Scientific and Practical Center of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus for Agricultural Mechanization" is one of the world's manufacturers of machines for planting potatoes, post-emergence processing, technological lines for storing and removing root crops from storage, as well as a complex machines (mini-factories) to prepare them for sale (dry cleaning, washing, grinding, weighing and packaging in polyethylene, mesh bags).

RUE "Experimental Plant of the Institute of Agriculture of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus" was organized in 1958 on the basis of the existing workshops of the Institute of Mechanization and Electrification of Agriculture of the Academy of Agricultural Sciences of the BSSR on the basis of the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the BSSR dated March 24, 1958 No. 175 and the order of the Academy of Agricultural Sciences of the BSSR dated 21 May 1958 No. 11.

Material and technical re-equipment of the enterprise was carried out. New machines and equipment were purchased and premises were renovated.

The newest products of the plant are machines for the primary processing of potatoes and other root crops, storing them, removing them from storage and preparing vegetable products for sale in the retail chain.

The produced machines fully comply with international standards and have certificates of conformity of the Customs Union and the European Union. Considering the use of Belarusian and Russian-made components, the cost of manufactured machines is 30-40% lower than imported analogues.

A special feature of the plant is the fact that the machines produced can be profitably assembled into lines consisting of machines of various contents, which can be used both when used in large modern warehouses, logistics centers, and in small farms.
