Svetlana A. Ovchukova, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor. In 1963, she graduated from Mordovia State University. Area of her scientific interest: application of optical radiation sources in industry and agriculture

Nadezhda P. Kondratievа, Prof., Dr. of Tech. Sc. In 1978, she graduated from Chelyabinsk Institute of Mechanization and Electrification of Agriculture. At present, she is a Head of the Chair of Automated Electric Drive Izhevsk State Agricultural Academy (IzhGSHA). She has its own science school in the field of agricultural lighting and developing of energy saving lighting technologies for agricultural enterprises is her field of interests. Also, she has got the title of “Honorary Worker of Higher Vocational Education of Russian Federation”

Olga Yu. Kovalenko, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor. She graduated from the Mordovia State University majoring in Lighting Engineering and Sources of Light in 1983. Professor of the Metrology, Standardisation and Certification subdepartment of the Institute for Electronics and Lighting Engineering at the N.P. Ogarev Mordovia State University.Her research interests are measurement and monitoring of parameters of lighting and irradiating systems

With the continue increase prices of the electricity while the financing of agriculture is remaining the same, agricultural production is increasingly difficult to satisfy the needs of the population with food production. Under these conditions the role of energy-saving technologies in agricultural production is relevant. In particular, very important is the use of optical radiation for irradiation of dairy herds, poultry and plants. In this article, methods of energy saving are presented, identified on the basis of long-term theoretical and practical research of the authors and their graduate students. The reliability of this research is confirmed by defended theses, the theoretical and practical achievements, the protocols of experiments, acts of economic and factory tests. The authors hope that this information will provide practical assistance to numerous small farms in our country while choosing energy-saving lighting technologies.
