This article reflects the results of research on developed innovative technologies and research results of advanced machines for mechanized processes in potato growing in the Forest-Steppe zone of Ukraine. It is worth noting that the technologies used on homesteads and farms are costly in the first place due to the fact that many works are done manually using simple agricultural implements. These works are labor-intensive and have low-productivity and the received products cannot be competitive in European and world markets.
To implement modern European technologies, agricultural producers need significant investments and capital inputs in movable and immovable technical means of mechanization. Innovative development of technical means for potato production in Ukraine, including planting, requires the development of scientific foundations for the theory, calculation and design of machines, a prerequisite for which must be well studied and scientifically proved as the suitable one, and where the mechanical and technological properties of objects are the working parts which should interact with bodies and supporting and running elements of machines.
In these studies, the methodological approach is based on the fact that not only potato planters but also other agricultural machinery involved in mechanized potato production processes are studied. The use of the system of treatment of potato tubers with pesticides ensures the exclusion of stationary disinfectants from the technological process of preparation of tubers for planting or additional spraying of plantations with pesticides, which saves financial resources for the purchase of mechanization.
Therefore, the developed and researched innovative technology of potato production is recommended for implementation, first of all, in individual farms, the area of potato plantations which do not exceed 1 ha, which will help to minimize the cost of manual labor.
