Research and Innovation Center AgroTech AITU

Large-scale restoration of ecosystems using modern technologies is an urgent task, climate change processes have accelerated, and systemic approaches are required to ensure green growth of flora and biodiversity. Sustainable and healthy ecosystems are natural carbon stores and sinks and a tool for adaptation to climate change. Existing solutions for ecosystem development need to be integrated with scientific and innovative IT solutions.


Implementation of large-scale projects based on interdisciplinary research in the field of digital technologies to introduce into the process of management and increase productivity, livestock breeding, automation of production processes, as well as reducing the negative impact on the environment.


The mission of the AgroTech Center is to develop and improve innovative agricultural technologies that can improve the efficiency and sustainability of agricultural production. Creation and implementation of innovative methods and technologies based on advanced scientific information and modern technological solutions.


– development of scientific and methodological approach to assessing the economic and environmental potential of forest ecosystems in different zones of Kazakhstan using modeling and forecasting methods;
– development and optimization of forestry management systems in the republic, taking into account the characteristics of regions and forest resources in the context of climate change;
– identification of current problems in forestry (cutting down, degradation, fire) in Kazakhstan, development of IT systems that ensure the conservation, multiplication and sustainable management of forests and forestry using infrared cameras, satellite, drone-UAV monitoring tools;
– implementation of scientifically based IT solutions, remote sensing tools, marking for administrative, management and landscape and forestry organization of the green belt territory;
– development of information technologies to automate the production process when growing production fields;
-using sensors and drones to monitor and manage agricultural land.

Completed projects

Hardware and software complex "Inspector"

Designed for monitoring, control and management of a fleet of vehicles with the aim of performing logistic tasks, reducing fuel consumption at enterprises, reducing carbon dioxide emissions, etc.

Online weather station

Allows you to monitor the weather conditions at a specific facility all year round in real time from anywhere in the world. Helps to effectively plan agricultural operations, prevent the development of plant diseases and the development of pests.

System for monitoring and forecasting rainfall, thaw-rain and mudflow floods.

Allows you to monitor the level and quality of water in rivers in real time.

Monitoring system for deforestation.

Allows you to control the situation with illegal deforestation.

System for monitoring the radiological situation and technology

The main purpose of the system is collection, operational and long-term storage of data on the radiation situation. Construction of time graphs of the radiation situation for the local point where the measurement will take place. Radiation background excess alarm.

Development of innovative ways of forest reproduction in the Kazakh Priirtyshi.

It was carried out in 2016-2018 under the leadership of S. Baizakov. The results of the work were three new technologies of forest growing, ensuring a high survival rate of forest plantations. On their basis, 3 innovative patents of the Republic of Kazakhstan were obtained and 1 monograph was published.

Study of forest reclamation protective plantations on the drained bottom of the Aral Sea, their influence on soil-forming processes and the development of scientific foundations for the creation of forest-pasture lands.

Completed on the instructions of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Kazakhstan in 2015-2017 under the leadership of B.T. Mambetov. It is proved that under the protection of saxaul plantations of certain parameters, the quantitative and qualitative composition of the grass stand increases, wind erosion stops altogether, and soil-forming processes improve.

Monitoring of changes in the ecology of coniferous forests in time and space in the south-east of Kazakhstan by methods of dendrochronological analysis.

“Grant funding for scientific research of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan, 2015-2017. The dendrochronological studies carried out made it possible to determine the climatic changes in the southeast of Kazakhstan over the past 200 years, determined the wet and dry years. The work was carried out jointly with the laboratory of dendrochronology of the Institute of Meteorology of the People’s Republic of China.

Socio-economic assessment of the effectiveness of greening of large cities of Kazakhstan, development of a methodology for assessing the effectiveness of greening programs and recommendations for their development.

Completed on the instructions of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Kazakhstan, 215-2017. Head Mambetov B. Works were carried out to analyze greening works in three large cities of Kazakhstan (Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Atyrau), as well as a socio-economic assessment of the effectiveness of greening these large cities. Thus, in Nur-Sultan, after the creation of the green zone, wind activity in the city decreased by 20-25%, the temperature in urban conditions increased by 1-2 degrees, and the socio-economic situation in other studied cities improved.

Prevention of desertification and land degradation in arid desert conditions through the development and implementation of technologies for the treatment of seedlings of tree and shrub species with compositions of moisture-adsorbing substances and growth biostimulants.

Grant financing of scientific research of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan, 2018-2020 Head Mambetov B. According to the results of the work, it was proved that in desert conditions, the combined use of moisture-absorbing substances and biostimulants, growth by 20% increased the survival rate of seedlings. The technology of processing seedlings with different compositions has been developed.
