October 28 was a professional holiday for every peatland in Russia very recently, but we are pleased to celebrate this holiday with our friends and colleagues.
Congratulations to all those involved in the conservation, extraction and processing of peat!
Professional and personal growth, high yields and high quality of raw materials and products!
The work is now frozen or stopped In many industrie, but not in the agricultural one!. Spring is short and it is impossible to miss the moment of planting. in Crimea, the sowing season began according to plan and nothing can stop it. We are glad to participate in this process, because in Crimea they plant blueberry – a rare plant in these latitudes.
The substrate for growing blueberries was developed by our experts, who took into account the climatic characteristics of the region. A lot of work was done, and we became part of an interesting experiment. We wish our partners to accomplish such a beautiful dream called “Blueberry in Crimea”!
More details in the news from the channel “Russia Crimea”.
In 2020, we celebrate two anniversaries: the 70th anniversary of our enterprise and the 20th anniversary of its recent history.
The history of our enterprise began a few years after World War II – in 1950. The question of the need for low-cost energy resources to ensure the vital activities of the region arose during the time of growth of the national economy in Leningrad and the Leningrad Region. The government of the country decided to develop peat deposits. Saint-Petersburg’s government has allocated tremendous resources: money, equipment and people. They even built a village specifically for the enterprise. In 1953, about 5,000 hectares of peat extraction area were put into the work. Almost all of the extracted peat is supplied to the thermoelectric power station of the Leningrad Region. After that some of the farms of the Tosnensky district became buyers, using peat both for open ground and as bedding for livestock.

In 2020, “Morris Green” (™) soil was traditionally selected for examination for quality control. The results delight us again. “Morris Green” soil “For the cultivation of cucumbers, zucchini, squash” is recognized as a product of decent quality.
We are providing excerpt from the article of the “Petereburgskoe kachestvo” (Saint-Peteresburg quality) web site on the conduct and results of the examination. The full article can be found here.
The St. Petersburg Public Organization of Consumers “Public Control” annually purchases samples of packaged soils and examines them for compliance with the stated information on the packaging in the branch of Federal State Institution “Rosselkhoztsentr” in the Leningrad Region. Every year in 70–80% of the samples various violations are detected. This year’s examination was not an exception: seven out of ten soil samples tested in the laboratory did not meet the technical specifications stated on the packaging.
According to test reports, only three samples were fully consistent with labeling data. By the way, their price was significantly lower than the cost of samples with high humidity, poor and unbalanced composition. So, “Public Control” can recommend the purchase of Morris Green soil “For the cultivation of cucumbers, zucchini, squash” (Pelgorskoye-M LLC).
