Empowerment

In Siberia in 1981 had ended the era of the pioneers and the era of reformers and creators had begun. It was the opinion of the writer Dmitri Zolotov, who expressed in his report of the National Conference for the development of the productive forces in Siberia. This representative event had elapsed in the academic village, a residential area located in the outskirts of Novosibirsk. At that time there was the task of enhancing these lands, extremely rich in natural resources, but with a noticeable shortage of manpower, as constituting 40% of the national territory, the number of inhabitants barely reached 21 million. Even in 1981 Western Siberia provided more than 300 million tonnes of oil a year (including gas condensate), 160 billion cubic meters of gas, or more than 50% of the national production of these types of fuel and raw materials. The coal reserves of Siberia were 90% of the predicted resources of the country.

The academic Beliaev, Director of the Institute of Cytology and genetics, rose to the podium of the Conference with a bundle of local wheat. Amid the applause with which specialists, cheered the academic stated: in the harsh Siberian weather conditions, can be obtained from 45 to 50 metric quintals per hectare of this cereal, not worse than the Canadian performance. He awoke great interest the report on the crossing between the cattle of the races from other regions of the country, which were noted for their high productivity of meat and milk, with the livestock of local breeds. The bulls and the cows selected by Siberian geneticists came despite a year and average about 400 kilos. Cows produce excellent milk, with a high proportion of fat. Local livestock provided selected breeds qualities that allowed them to live and multiply in Siberia.
