LEARNING FIRSTHAND ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE OF POWER FARMING IN THE USA BY THE RUSSIAN MISSION OF THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT
R.A. Fando

This paper is devoted to the history of how a Russian delegation sent to the USA by the Provisional Government in 1917 was learning firsthand about the American experience of using machines to enhance agricultural crop yield (power farming). This mission included N.A. Borodin and M.I. Volkov, both of whom acted on behalf of the Provisional Government’s Ministry of Agriculture. The American Government received the delegates of the new Russian Government very hospitably, giving them every assistance to visit various research, training and production facilities, and helping them with a loan of $100,000,000 granted to the Provisional Government. The mission’s programme included the visits to factories producing agricultural machinery, the 1917 Annual National Power Farming Demonstration, and the agricultural colleges. On Borodin’s initiative, two Russian specialists were later sent to the USA to be trained in power farming and two American workers moved to Petrograd to share their knowledge and skills in agricultural machinery production. Borodin had also purchased for Russia the samples of tractors, mowers, seed drills, harvesters, cultivators, cold storage facilities for storing foods, etc.
Keywords: N.A. Borodin, Provisional government mission, USA, agricultural exhibitions, mechanization of agriculture, training of technical personnel.
