About 305 scientific articles, 5 monographs, 16 methodical instructions, 3 textbooks and 9 manuals have been published. In 2005 adherent to chair a Problem Laboratory of Ecology and Organic Agriculture was founded, where Scientific researches are aimed at preservation and effective use of land resources of different regions of the republic, problems of obtaining ecologically safe food from man-made polluted areas.

For the first time in the RA the technology has been elaborated, that enables to obtain ecologicaly safe crop production from industrially polluted areas (E. Hayrapetyan, M. Galstyan, S.
