The concept of comparable advantages and the practice of governmental regulation of the agrarian sector
In Belarus, in the conditions of huge deficit of resources and large-scale governmental interference into the economy the choice of strategic elements of regulations has paramount importance. One of the most important prerequisites for international competitiveness is the comparable advantages of certain types of produce. Generally comparable advantages can be formulated as the relation of alternative production costs inside the country to the world price for this particular produce. Alternative production costs is the result of the best alternative options of resource utilization used in the production of a specific product. In the conditions of the competitive market the alternative costs are expressed by me balanced price for the product. The article proposes the method of calculating alternative production costs of agricultural produce in the conditions of me market with imperfect competition. Utilizing me concept of comparable advantages allows specifying branches (types of produce) effective from the global point of view.

Food wholesale markets
The author used institutional theory and its instruments to justify efficient market infrastructure, the formation of which would be reasonable to ground on regional principle, systematic approach and integration of the entities of different levels. At the same time the prerequisites for reducing transactions costs must be created as well the system of arbitrage aimed at balanced up keep of different markets. Such system creates the prerequisites for optimizing physical distribution of food, efficient use of the existing distribution system, rational investment process, competitive environment and lower asymmetry of information in this sector. The article provides the data on forming the structural system of food markets and the characteristics of main participant

The volumes of accumulation of 137Cs and 90Sr per specie and variety of agricultural plants
The accumulation of radionuclides in various species and varieties of agricultural plants on the same conditions of soil contaminated by radionuclides and agrochemical exponents can differ hundred times. The differences in accumulation of 137Cs and 90Sr are less - up to 3-4 times. The article grades the basic plants cultivated on contaminated soils per volume of 137Cs and 90Sr as well as per crop yield. It is possible to recommend selecting the species and varieties of agricultural plants having minimal capabilities of accumulation as a simple economically justified way of reducing the contamination of agricultural produce in general.

Mineral and amino acid composition of the blue lupine grain
The article summarizes the data of the two-year experiments on mineral and amino acid composition of the blue lupine grain variety "Helena ", grown in the northeast of Belarus. It also demonstrates variability of the mineral nutrition elements; variability of protein and its amino acids. The article establishes correlation between the elements in the weight and molecular form; correlation between mineral elements and amino acids; as well as between elements and amino acids. Biological value of protein corresponding to 76,8 % was established.

Creation of corn inbred lines in Belarus
The seven years of breeding research at Belarus Research Institute for Arable Farming and Fodders have resulted in the creation of a number of corn lines having important economic properties. Studying the lines and their test-crosses in a wide ecological network allowed to select genotypes with high adaptive potential. The experimental hybrids of grain and silage created on their basis have the productivity not less than standards.

The impact of the long-term application of fertilizers on the nutrient balance of grain crop rotations and their dynamics on sody-podzolic light loamy soils
The average annual application of nitrogen fertilizers N62-90 on the background of 16 t/ha of manure and P60K104 on sody-podzolic light loamy soils ensures the productivity of the grain crop rotations (potatoes - barley - oats-pea mixture - winter wheat) at the level of 7,6-8,0 t/ha per unit with maximum agronomic, energetic and economic efficiency. It also ensures good balance of nitrogen and positive balance of phosphorous and potassium. On soils with the high content of mobile forms of phosphorous and potassium it is advisable to apply mineral phosphorous and potassium fertilizers on the basis of 100% intensity of their balance.

Influence of pesticides on the micro flora of sody-podzolic soil
The effect of the intensive chemical oat protection on the main groups of soil microorganisms was studied in the field experiment. It was determined that the production doses of pesticides (vitavax 200FF, 34% w.s.c. 2,5 kg/t regent 300 EC, 70 ml/ha pardner, 22,5% c.e., 1,01 l/ha, granit, 20% c.e. 1,01 l/ha) increased the number of cellulose-destroying, nitrifying, ammonifying bacteria and microorganisms, using mineral forms of nitrogen. Temporal inhibition of azotobacter, fungi and aclinomycetes was observed. By the end of the vegetation period the number of studied groups of microorganisms have restored to the control level.

The properties of milk extender with different composition used for dilution of the bull's sperm
The article provides the results of the research on physical and biological properties of the two components milk extender for dilution of the bull's sperm. The skimmilk with fat content of 0,05-0,08%, homogenized cream, glycerin and polygene are the basic components of the first option of the extender, another option requires adding fructose solution, glycerin and polygene. The osmotic pressure of the extenders was 290±1 and 284±I mOsms; pH 6,66±0,01 and 6,61 ±0,01 respectively. When diluting and freezing the bull's sperm in granules or pellets milk extender ensured the viability 30-40% of spermatozoa as well as preservation of their structure and biological properties. The percentage of the cells with damaged acrosoma (among mobile) did not exceed 7-8. Insemination of heifers and cows with such sperm yielded higher results offertilization (77,5% on average). The insemination with the sperm diluted with lactosa-egg-glycerine extender had 62,1%.
