A. ragavtsev, scientific secre- ry of the science council for roblems of genetics and selec- on for the Academy of Sci- ice of the USSR. Dr. Dragavtsev arrived in Ot- ,wa from Moscow Feb. 14 and spending time in various anada department of agricul- ure research centres and sev- ral university science depart- ts to exchange information nd materials to further re- earch in both countries. As the senior research scien- st in the laboratory of plant enetics, Institute of Cytology nd Genetics for the Siberian ranch of the USSR Academy f Science, he specializes uantitative genetics of plants nd the theory of plant gene- jcs selection. He suggested two main inter- :sts in Canada, including borough disovery of the co-op- rative tests by Canadian scien- ists in the field of wheat, bar- ey, oats and other main agri- cultural plants. He said the Canadian system 5 very good and that it has a ery long tradition. He implied ,hat the first wheat tests in Canada were done in 1938 and hat Canada has amassed more experience in the field of plant [enetics than many others. Dr. Dragavtsev said lie was ilso most interested in ex- changing ideas and actual seed with Canadian scientists. As part of his duty, he must also recommend to the Russian government Canadian scientists who should be invited to study and do research in Russia. In his field, Dr. Dragavtsev las been working closely with the plant science section at the Lethbridge Research Station. Also on his trip he has visit- ed the plant science section of CDA in Ottawa, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and will visit Beav- erlodge. He visited the University of Manitoba and will be at the University of Alberta and the University of Montreal before returning to Moscow. Dr. Dragavtsev stressed that part of the reason for his trip to Canada was to forlify the Russian systems of reserach with work and ideas from Can- ada. He said both countries share and work on very importan' common problems, like cole hardiness of crops, rust resis- tance of grains, soil, climate and drought problems.
