Amaranth is an extremely interesting plant that was cultivated by the indigenous inhabitants of Central and South America until the 16th century. In the 70s of our century, attention to amaranth as a food and fodder crop increased again.
Many researchers have assessed it as a rich source of protein and essential amino acids, the deficiency of which cannot be filled by traditional crops. Today, amaranth oil occupies an important place in phytotherapy and potentially the prevention of some health issues.
A new variety of amaranth "Cherginsky" has been created at the Institute of Cytology and Genetics in Omsk (Siberia, Russia). The novelty has high frost resistance and plasticity, which makes it possible for its cultivation in a wide variety of conditions. A remarkable feature of the amaranth "Cherginsky" is its precocity, which makes it possible to obtain full-fledged seeds in the conditions of Western Siberia.
