Evolution and modern trends of competition economic policy development
In modern conditions of dynamic development of the market environment, deployment of informatization and globalization processes, and tightening of economic confrontation of companies, development of framework conditions for efficient competition and ensuring on this basis the current and long-term business competitiveness takes on particular significance. Competitive policy plays a significant role for solving this problem, which under modern economic conditions is one of the most important tools for economic processes state management aimed at formation and development of highly efficient economy with a significant growth potential and allowing to solve the whole range of social and economic problems. The results of studying the foreign experience in development and nature of the main provisions of antimonopoly and competition laws are presented in the article, and the main stages of its evolution are outlined. It was determined that qualitative changes in the world economy, active globalization and informatization processes, development of new economy and network structures had a significant impact on the modern model of competition policy. The key aspects of competition economic policy formation in the regional integration countries unions (EU, APEC, NAFTA, OECD, CIS, EAEU, etc.) are highlighted. It was determined that the EU legislation was considered one of the best examples of efficient international competition law. The main directions of the EU’s competition policy and peculiarities of its promotion to other countries were revealed; peculiarities of developing a single competitive economic policy within the framework of EAEU were studied. The conducted researches allowed to determine that processes in the world economy had a significant impact on competition law, which during its formation has undergone significant changes, had become more flexible and targeted and acquired systemic character. Systematic study of the world experience, the EU’s experience first of all, is obviously of a great interest for the Republic of Belarus with the market economy at the stage of active formation, as well as the corresponding policy for competition and competitiveness support. Learning this experience is important for successful integration of the country into the European and Global trade and economic area. The theoretical basis of the modern competition policy is formed by a number of conceptual approaches, which have to be learned to understand its key characteristics and accents, directions and methods, and also to predict the forms of its further modernization.

Agroecological aspects of oxygen state of mineral arable soils in conditions of atmospheric humidification
Results of study of oxidation-reduction stability parameters of arable soils in Poland and sensitivity of various kinds of these soils to hydro-oxygen degradation are presented in the article. It is shown that oxidation-reduction stability, expressed by two temporal values t400 and t300 is an important property, measured by retention time Eh at the level of +400 mV (nitrate reduction) and +300 mV (ferric oxide reduction). These redox reactions perform as a buffer that slows the transition of waterlogged soils into anoxic state, and the oxides involved are natural accumulators of oxygen in soil environment. A model of parametrization of hydro-oxygen conditions of these soils has been created for conditions of washing water regime, taking into account correlation between these indicators and hydrophysical properties of arable soils. Some results of surveys of mineral arable soils in Poland are presented, characterizing the hydro-oxygenic conditions of soil. Thus, the average values of t400 for soils with a temperature of +20 °C in the arable layer range from < 1 to 1.5 days, in the sub-arable layer – from < 1 to 3 days, in the subsoil – from < 1 to 5 days; for t300 – 0.5–4.5, 1.0–9.0, 1.0–12.0 days, respectively. For Tppw in the arable layer they reach 2.5–4.5 days, in the sub-arable layer – 3.0–8.0 days, and in the subsoil – 4.0–19.5 days [4]. The presented values are used to improve the calibration of drainage systems, taking into account the arable soils oxygen state adjustment with washing water regime. In conclusions the attention is paid to advisability of deepening knowledge of the oxygen regime of mineral arable soils, its agroecological significance and land reclamation. This adjustment should correspond to the modified paradigm of drainage reclamation, which means that the direct cause of the restriction of the vital activity of plants and soil biota is a lack of oxygen, but not the water excess in soil. Agroecological composite element of meliorative adjustment of oxygen regime of arable soils is the possibility of the soils protection from loss of fertility potential, which are nitrates, and also iron oxides – the natural accumulators of oxygen in soil environment, protecting it from anoxia in conditions of waterlogging.

Virulence of apple scab pathogen population in Belarus
One of the most important directions for protection of apple tree against scab in the world fruitgrowing is breeding and further cultivation of resistant varieties. However, there are a number of drawbacks in this area, and the main are duration of creation of commercially relevant and at the same time sustainable variety, and the problem of variety resistance loss due to appearance of new more aggressive races of pathogen. This article presents the results of studying the virulence of isolates from host plants – apple varieties with Rvi6 gene of resistance to scab gene. In the apple scab population 14 virulence genes were identified of 19 known. There is an increase of the genetic diversity of populations of pathogen of apple scab – Venturia inaequalis in the last forty years due to quality and quantity of genotypes. The genetic structure of populations of the pathogen showed new virulence genes – p-10+, p-11+ and p-14+, increase in the number of virulence genes was determined. The strains of the pathogen of apple scab, obtained from the host plants with Rvi6 gene, have different virulence properties, and also have common virulence genes in relation to some differentiator varieties. In the scab population genes of virulence р-1+ and р-14+ dominated. A group of scab pathogen strains was determined combining high virulence and aggressiveness: BM-3, BM-9, Bsl-1, Dr-3 and Zr-4, which must be included in the inoculum to create an artificial background when selecting resistant to scab apple hybrids. Monitoring of the genetic diversity of virulence and aggressiveness allows to systematically adjust the selection strategy for apple trees. Using of the defined strains of apple tree scab pathogens for creation of artificial infectious backgrounds with the maximum variety of virulence and aggressiveness genes will allow to objectively assess the stability level of both the apple tree original forms and the hybrids.

Parasite cenosis of hunting animals at hunting and protected areas in Belarus
Parasitic diseases cause significant damage to hunting animals, therefore, in all countries, including Belarus, they are given special attention when studying and developing means and methods for preventing and fighting them, especially against the background of increasing anthropogenic pressures on ecosystems and pollution of territories with chemicals and radionuclides. The aim of the work is to study species composition and association of hunting animals parasites in hunting areas and protected areas of Belarus, their nosogeography and habitat, intermediate hosts, development of prevention and control measures. The methodology is based on integrated approach to study of parasite cenosis of mammals, which takes into account the relationships in the “parasite-host” system, and effect of abiotic and biotic factors on these processes. Years of studies (2000–2016) showed that helminths are mostly spread among the parasites affecting hunting animals in Belarus: in roe deer 40 species of helminthes are registered, moose – 36, noble deer – 35, wild boar – 20. On the territory of the Berezinsky biospheric conservancy combined parasite cenosis are determined: helminths, protozoa, ectoparasites, microorganisms, etc., the wild animals and large predators were 93.2–100% affected with. Intermediate hosts of helminths were determined to be 20 species of freshwater, mollusks, 20 ants, 32 arboid mites, 10 earthworms, as well as beetles, fleas and freshwater invertebrates. Factors influencing the parasitological situation are described, recommendations for prevention of parasitosis among hunting animals of Belarus are given.

Aspects of cultivation and processing of fiber flax in the Republic of Belarus
Fiber flax is of a great economic importance for the national economy of Belarus. Analysis of the world market situation for natural fibers shows that flax farming remains a profitable industry of the modern agriculture and does not depend on the model and level of economic development of the flax seeding country. There is a steady increase in the Republic of Belarus in the volume of linen fabrics consumption, produced from high numbers of linen yarns. A large volume of the Belarusian flax is exported as raw material and semi-finished products to countries processing the Belarusian low-quality products and ensuring the competitiveness of their finished linen products due to the low purchase price in our country. It is possible to obtain high quality flax products and ensure its cost-effective sales by all the levels of flax farming industry in the market conditions in domestic and foreign markets only by taking flax farming to a modern technological level by re-equipment and improvement of production conditions. Currently a new concept has been formed in production and use of natural fibers, including flax. The article shows values and aspects of fiber flax domestic varieties in order to have stable production increase of high quality flax straw and flax fiber. Estimation and aspects for improvement of these values is given by using the latest flax cultivation techniques, allowing to increase fiber flax production without increasing the production areas.

Development of oxidation-resistant biologically active food supplements based on flaxseed oil
The effects of a number of vitamins and other biologically active substances (BAS) (α-tocopherol, α-tocopherol acetate, cholecalciferol, β-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, coenzyme Q10 and selenomethionine) on oxidation stability of flaxseed oil depending on concentration and compositions of the supplements were studied. For this purpose kinetic regularities data on accumulation of primary and secondary oxidation products, free fatty acids and BAS consumption during storage of flaxseed oil with additives was obtained. It has been shown that substances used to enrich the flaxseed oil, can show both antioxidant and prooxidant properties depending on their structure and concentration. The combined effect of the BAS and a number of synthetic and natural inhibitors on the oxidation stability of flaxseed oil for providing antioxidant protection of enriched oil was studied. Efficient and safe stabilizers for the BAS-enriched flaxseed oil were obtained, allowing to significantly inhibit the oxidation and oxidative degradation, reduce the BAS loss and therefore increase the oil shelf life. Based on the obtained data, formulations and production technologies of new oxidation-resistant biologically active food supplements (BAFS) based on flaxseed oil were developed, and manufacture of the supplements was arranged. This will allow to expand the assortment of available for a wide range of consumers products based on flaxseed oil; will improve the nutrition quality due to increase of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) omega-3 level, vitamins and other valuable bioactive substances, and will contribute to health improvement of the population in Belarus.
