The Institute of Cytology and Genetics of the Russian Academy of Science's Siberian Branch and Chinese investors have executed an agreement intending to construct the largest scientific production center for potato growing beyond the Urals. The project requires the approval of federal authorities. It may start operating at full capacity in 3 to 5 years.
