St. Petersburg scientists from the Agrophysical Research Institute have created a technology for growing crops in fully controlled conditions - without soil, with nutrient solutions supplied to the root system and using specially designed LED—based lamps that repeat the solar spectrum. Small-sized phytotechnical complexes built into the premises have been tested in the laboratories of the institute itself, in several educational institutions, at one of the polar stations. The project involves such fundamental scientific structures as the All-Russian Institute of Plant Genetic Resources named after N. I. Vavilov, the Institute of Biomedical Problems and the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute of Roshydromet. Cooperation with the Ministry of Defense, which began in 2016, made it possible to add an element of non-waste to the development.
