Нistory of department

The Department of Horticulture, Viticulture, Biology and Chemistry was created in 2014 by combining the Department of Horticulture and Viticulture with the Department of Biology and Chemistry. Before that, each of the departments had a long history.

The Department of Viticulture and Viticulture was established in 1918 during the formation of the Odessa Agricultural Institute (OSGI). The founder and the first head of the department was Professor OA. Kipen (1918-1939). In different years, the department was led by prominent teachers and scientists: Corresponding Member VASGNIL, Academician of the Ukrainian Agricultural Academy, Honored Scientist of the USSR, Doctor of Agricultural Sciences, Professor SO. Melnik (1939-1968); Honored Worker of Higher School of Ukraine, Candidate of Agricultural Sciences, Professor M.O. Dudnik (1968-1990); Candidate of Agricultural Sciences, Associate Professor F.M. Gridin (1990-1991). The teaching staff of the department consisted of: Assistant Professors G.S. Moliver, I.I. Nezhentsev, A.M. Shumakov, V.K. Anisimova, V.I. Shchiglovskaya, MS Krychmar, M.M. Koval, M.H. Koshur, TG Borbolyuk, EV Kulidzhanov, NV Kameneva; Candidates of Agricultural Sciences, Assistants V.M. Streltsov, MV Ulyanitskaya, A.O. Sikirnitsky, MI Meleshko; LI’s assistants Befani, V.M. Barkar, A.M. Mogherchuk, M.A. The teaser; Senior Lecturer VA Sedletsky.At the same time as the educational process, the staff of the department carried out scientific work in the following areas: creation of new table grape varieties; the use of non-traditional growth promoters in grape nurseries and viticulture; improving the technology of growing grafted grape seedlings; development of varietal differentiated agricultural techniques of grapes; development of theoretical bases of biology of flowering and fertilization of grapevine; development of technology for making dessert wines in the conditions of the southern steppe of Ukraine; development of grape growing technology based on planting renewal under different planting and irrigation schemes; development of scientifically grounded regimes of pasteurization of different types of grape wines. The results of the scientific work of the department are inventions and patents. In the first direction at the department there was a laboratory of viticulture, which was founded by the prominent viticulturist Academician S.O. A miller in 1963. For 35 years of laboratory activity, 18 new table grape varieties of OGI breeding have been accepted for the state variety testing. Among them are seedless: “Dream”, “Surprise”, “The seedless Miller”, “Kishmish OSGI”, “In memory of the Miller”; early bigfertilizers: “Amber OSGI”, “Sunrise”, “Nectar”, “Red”, “Yuzhanka OSGI”, “Dietary”, “Dessert OSGI”, “Muscat of the Black Sea”, “Flame”, “Early OSGI”, “Anniversary OSGI “,” Pearl of OSGI “. In 1997, seven varieties of grapes were zoned and entered into the State Register of Plant Varieties of Ukraine:” Dream “,” Kishmish OSGI “,” Yantar OSGI “,” Yuzhanka OSGI “,” Diet “,” Red ” “,” Muscat of the Black Sea “. In Russia, the variety is “Un seeded Melnik”, in Uzbekistan – “Surprise”. According to the scientific research of this laboratory, more than 50 scientific works have been published, including in the publications “Ampelografiya” and “Encyclopedia of viticulture”. In 1999 the textbook “Viticulture” in Ukrainian was published, in 2008 the second edition of the textbook “Viticulture”, edited by Professor EI, was published. Khrenovskaya. For scientific work the employees were awarded with gold, silver and bronze medals of VDNH. In the second direction, the department first offered unconventional growth stimulants in grape nurseries and in fruit-bearing plantations, namely: the complex of trace elements, organic acids separately and together with trace elements, amino acids, phenylburets. The department has developed a method of determining the quality of grafted grape seedlings, improved technology for growing vegetative grape seedlings. For the first time in the history of viticulture, the theoretical foundations have been developed and some techniques of differentiated differentiated agrotechnics and directional cultivation of grapes of the given condition for many regional varieties have been proposed, including selection of OGI. Theoretical principles of additional pollination of functionally female grape varieties have been developed, which has allowed to determine the best varieties-pollinators for many varieties. Recommended methods of production of vintage dessert wines from the varieties “Muscat Hamburg”, “Pinot”, “Cabernet Sauvignon” in the conditions of the steppe zone of Ukraine. The scientifically substantiated regimes of pasteurization of table wines which are produced in production. A complex of agro-measures has been developed to increase the productivity of existing vineyards, which provides for the updating of the plantation, the local application of fertilizers, irrigation under different planting schemes. Over 90 years the department has graduated more than 3100, has trained 11 doctors of science and 134 candidates of sciences. The department’s scientists have published 45 textbooks and methodical manuals, 51 monographs, 852 scientific articles. Received 24 copyright certificates, 7 patents, created 18 new grape varieties.

The Department of Fruit and Vegetable Crops was established in 1930. Its founder and first head was Professor Yukhim Kirkopoulo, who has consistently led its staff for 36 years (1930-1967). Talented teacher, well-known specialist in the field of horticulture and ornamental horticulture, a pioneer in the implementation of peach culture in Odessa. During 1967-1985 the department was headed by associate professor Oleksandr Onyychuk. At its initiative, in 1968, the Department of Fruit and Vegetable Production was reorganized into two departments – Fruit and Vegetable. From 1985 to 2009 the Department of Fruit Growing was headed by Associate Professor A.P. Trofonyuk. In 2009, the Department of Horticulture, Viticulture and Viticulture was merged into the Department of Horticulture and Viticulture, headed by prof. VI Khrenovskov. At different times, the associate professors VA Yershov, AK Akhmetov worked at the department. Smihun, A.I. Ershov, Dubina TA, Petrenko IO; assistants K.G. Gerasimenko, MP Kabanov, NP Skirtach, VV Piskaryov, OB Levin, Dremlyuga TO, Romanenko S., Meleshko. Employees of the department constantly introduced into the educational process and production the latest achievements of science, best practices and own developments. In particular, with their direct involvement, since 1980, 12 projects have been developed and nearly 900 hectares of intensive apple, peach, plum, cherry and pear orchards of rational designs have been laid out in 19 farms in the region. The seedlings for these plantings were grown in the nursery nursery farm “Red farm”. Based on scientific research the following developments have been obtained: improved stratification of rootstock seeds in nurseries; developed an alley-interval system of garden designs; recommendations for planting in cherry and sand cherry strips; developed a non-stop way of laying peach plantations; the intensive technology of cultivation of root peach seedlings by means of green cuttings is offered; improved technology for growing apple seedlings using mechanized winter grafting; revealed the best grafting and rootstock combinations of apple varieties for rainfall conditions of the Black Sea steppe of Odessa region; recommended new seed rootstock for peach – hybrid “Satellite” (in 1990 entered in the State Register of Plants of Ukraine); for the garden of the Dutch type of apple trees found more effective introduced varieties: “Arivo”, “Eliza”, “Golden Delicious Reinders”.

The Department of Chemistry was founded in 1918. During the first years of its existence, the department had no chemical laboratories, so the faculties for lectures and laboratory classes were the departments of chemistry at the time, the branches of Novorossiysk University (now – II Mechnikov National University) and the Odessa Pedagogical Institute. Teaching courses were provided by: Professors N.P. Pavlov, KV Flerov, PI Goncharov, associate professors TG Kovalev, DI Chotia, V.V. Hilarion et al. The general methodical guidance of the department was carried out by the head of the educational part of the institute S.O. Miller. In the years 1945-1956 the department was headed by Professor S.M. Chumanov. During this period, all chemical disciplines were part of the same department. The course of inorganic chemistry was read by S.M. Chumanov, OK Dobrolyubsky; of analytical chemistry – Ok. Dobrolyubsky, EV Bouchet, M.V. Family; course of organic, physical and colloidal chemistry Curvilinear. After Professor SM The Chumanov Department was headed in various years by: Dobrolyubsky, Professors V.О. Pyankov, V.V. Tikhomirov, then again Associate Professor OK. Good-natured. In 1947 the department was granted a new premises in the yard of the institute – the so-called chemical building. At the same time, the department was divided into two: inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry. In 1972, the departments were reunited. During 1979-2009 the department was headed by the excellent student of education of Ukraine (2001), candidate of chemical sciences, associate professor OP Pozharitsky ,. In 2009-2014, the Department of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry was part of the Department of Botany, Ecology and Chemistry, headed by Professor S.S. Korlyuk. The department actively conducted research work. Since 1949, the team has been researching trace elements, studied their content in soil and plants, the impact on plants. Associate Professor O.K. headed this work. Good-natured. Worked with him: V.K. Rizha, A.V. Slavvo, A.S. Vnukova, IV Fedorenko, M.M. Pavlenko, G.M. Viktorova, MV Kazakova, R.A. Kiselev, V.G. Fears. The staff of the department studied the chemical composition of soils of many farms in the south of Ukraine, determined the content of their most important macro- and microelements. According to the recommendations of the department for the first time in the USSR, in order to increase the yield and improve the quality of the grapes, during the processing of the vineyards began to add trace elements to the Bordeaux liquid. The next step in the scientific research of the department was the study of patterns of influence of various metal complexes with biologically active ligands on the growth and productivity of crops. These studies are carried out jointly with the Department of General Chemistry and Polymers of Odessa National University. I.I. Mechnikov (Head of the Department Prof. IJ Seifullin, Prof. OE Martsinko). The mentioned subject of scientific researches was a part of the candidate’s dissertation О.Г. Pesaroglo. The department constantly improved the educational process, updated methodical materials. The scientists of the department issued more than 50 methodical instructions, a textbook with the stamp of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine (AP Pozharitsky). Teachers are trained at leading universities in Odessa. In 2001, Associate Professor O.P. Pozharitsky, a part of a group of teachers of Odessa universities, trained at the University of Massachusetts (USA). For many years the department was the basis for holding the All-Ukrainian Olympiad in chemistry among students of agricultural higher education institutions, and in 2001-2002 the International Olympiad among students of the CIS countries. The level of organization and holding of the Olympics is highly appreciated by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. Associate Professor OP Pozharitsky was awarded with the badge “Excellent Education of Ukraine”. In 2008 and 2010 Associate Professor O.P. Pozharitsky was appointed by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine as a scientific supervisor of students and a member of the jury of the International Olympiad in Chemistry in the Islamic Republic of Iran (Tehran). In 2010, the team of Ukraine led. Associate Professor O.P. Pozharitsky took the 2nd place.
