Digital Technologies for Environmental Management Question and Protection of Aquatic Biological Resources: Scientific Aspect

The current stage of the fisheries industry development is characterized by the widespread introduction of digital solutions. Digital transformation has touched upon environmental management and protection of aquatic biological resources. For the Lower Volga, for the Astrakhan region, the tasks of environmental monitoring, conservation of natural features and biodiversity under the conditions of anthropogenic load have recently become especially relevant. The legislation strictly regulates the rules and restrictions in fisheries, recreational fishing, and environmental monitoring. However, compliance controls and enforcement mechanisms are not sufficiently supported by digital technologies, especially when integrating structured and unstructured information from various disparate and loosely connected data sources is required. To effectively respond to these questions, new approaches are required using up-to-date information and telecommunication technologies. This paper recapitulates scientific research and development activities Astrakhan State Technical University has been carrying out in this direction.

Topical Issues and Problems of the Development of the Agricultural Sector of Mongolia, the Need for the Introduction of Smart Farming Technologies

In recent years, the Government of Mongolia has been paying great attention to the development of agriculture by increasing its productivity and economic efficiency using environmentally friendly working methods and adaptation to climate change. Attention is also paid to the development of organic farming in order to produce environmentally friendly, healthy food in sufficient quantities for Mongolia to become an exporting country of organic food. Due to global warming, there are obvious negative consequences for the development of this sector, such as ecological imbalance, degradation of pasture resources and vegetation cover, and a decrease in soil fertility. For the rational solution of these problems, it is necessary to develop and implement modern technologies of smart farming in the practice of agriculture. Currently, researchers at the Mongolian University of Natural Sciences are successfully implementing several research projects on the development and implementation of technologies for digitalization of agriculture in Mongolia. There is a good prospect of developing and expanding export-oriented healthy and regulatory-compliant organic products, as well as expanding the practice of organic farming through the use or disclosure of Mongolia's unique biological and natural resources and diversity, as well as developing and expanding export-oriented organic products that support health and regulate.

Digital Technologies for Optimizing the use of the Resource Potential of Russian Lands in Agriculture

In order to prevent a decrease in the economic efficiency and competitiveness of Russian agricultural production, as well as to optimize the use of the resource potential of land, accurate, operational, and low-cost technologies for inventory and monitoring of land, as well as assessing their quality and planning rational agricultural land use are needed. Their creation and improvement at the present stage of the development of science is impossible without the use of digital and remote technologies, as well as computer spatial modeling. Development of digital mapping methods and monitoring of soils and lands based on satellite data and data obtained from UAVs, assessing the resource potential and potential crop yields, development of scenarios for rational use of land in agriculture and modeling of possible changes in land quality as a result of trends in technological development of agriculture and observed and forecast climate and soil changes they can be considered as the basis for a new scientific direction – digital land use. The introduction of modern digital technologies will increase the efficiency of agricultural production and the full exploitation of the resource potential of the lands of Russia.

Socio-Economic Problems of Digital Transformation of Rural Areas

Digital transformation is considered as a restructuring based on digital tech-nologies and large databases of the entire management system of rural devel-opment, including goals, strategies, models, operations, marketing approaches, etc. Socio-economic problems of digital transformation of rural areas are consid-ered in connection with the scale of the Russian Federation and interregional features of the demographic structure of its population. Long distances be-tween small rural settlements hinder the solution of the problem of their access to the Internet and mobile communications. The increased costs for rural areas make them unattractive for commercial structures. According to Western re-searchers, the digital divide between villages and cities is insurmountable and even intensifies, and socio-economic factors become decisive in the digital transformation of rural areas. Social, socio-demographic, economic and normative-institutional factors, due to their multidimensional nature, act as both drivers and barriers to the digital transformation of rural areas, which, in turn, has both a positive and negative impact on rural areas in socio-economic terms.

Role of Feed Adaptogens in Forming the Concept of Organic Pig Production

One of the priorities of the Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development of the Russian Federation (approved by Presidential Decree No. 642 of December 1, 2016) is the transition to a highly productive and environmentally friendly agriculture. An important aspect of organic livestock production is to reduce the impact of stress factors on the animals. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop effective and sustainable management approaches to mitigate the negative effects of stress and increase feed conversion efficiency while producing higher quality pork. A promising solution could be the use of natural biologically active substances with pronounced antioxidant properties, which can through stabilization of free-radical oxidation increase the adaptation properties of the body to the effects of environmental stressors. The action of natural bioflavonoids (dihydroquercetin) as well as in complex with vitamins on the organism of fattening pigs during the periods of stress of various etiology (climatic, fodder, transport, social, etc.) was studied. A complex including vitamin C, vitamin E and dihydroquercetin has been developed. The provisions of the method of feeding pigs as a way to reduce the negative impact of stress factors on meat quality by studying nutritional factors have been experimentally studied.

Theoretical Foundations and Tools for Detecting Intra-Field Heterogeneity for Precision Farming

Precision agriculture (PA) is generally recognized as a global trend in the adaptation of crop production technologies to the intra-field variability of controlled productivity factors. The justified application of agricultural methods of PA is impossible without a quantitative assessment of the intra-field variability of indicators affecting the quantity and quality of the crop. The degree of variation (range) of intra-field heterogeneity determines the expediency and effectiveness of a differentiated approach to the cultivation of agricultural crops in a particular territory. The report presents the theoretical, methodological, and algorithmic foundations for identifying intra-field variability for the purposes of PA based on remote Earth remote sensing (ERS) data. A functional has been created for the implementation of two new methods for detecting and isolating the boundaries of intra-field heterogeneity according to remote sensing data. One of them uses geostatistical tools, and the other is based on a comprehensive assessment of the dynamics of changes in the optical characteristics of sowing. The prospects of scaling the results obtained in modern agriculture are assessed.
