The Research Network of the Institute includes legally independent research stations that perform part of the research work, provide production of elite and hybrid seeds of vegetables and melon crops (Southern State Agricultural Research Station, Kamyansko-Dniprovska Research Station, Sarny Research Station) and also the dissemination of scientific research.
Part of the scientific issues is carried out at the research stations, which is a part of the state scientific and technical programs. Areas of research work have a specialized character is depending on the zonal conditions, scientific specification, and material support of each station.
Scientific institutions of the Research Network of the Institute act as regional centers of land reclamation science, conduct research and refine, adapt and introduce new technologies and technical solutions taking into account local conditions, promote the achievements of science and technology, provide scientific advisory services, etc.
The main directions of scientific and practical activity of the Research Network of the Institute:
the Southern State Agricultural Research Station is carrying out scientific researches, approbation, and implementation of scientific developments on the issues of irrigation in the perennial crops; solving problems of irrigation lands efficient use, conduct breeding studies and develop technologies for growing vegetables, melon crops, fruits, berries, and grapes; performance of research work on fundamental and applied problems of agricultural land reclamation, selection of vegetable and melon crops, approbation and implementation of completed scientific developments. Also, the Research Station is carrying out of production inspection; improvement and make advanced technologies; forecasts, and programs update on the main problems and directions of irrigation issues of cultivated perennial crops; scientific advisory services, marketing of vegetables and melons production.
— the Kamyansko-Dniprovska Research Station is carrying out of scientific substantiation of irrigation development in the southern regions of Ukraine, pilot testing in zonal conditions and wide introduction into practice of advanced experience of irrigation lands effective use and new achievements.
— the Sarny Research Station is carrying out of performing scientific research in the field of land reclamation engineering and agriculture. As a center for the implementation and dissemination of scientific development of the Institute, the Station and other scientific institutions of the Academy, conservation effective land and water resources use of Polesie, conducting of agro-ecological and radioecological researches, and reclaimed lands monitoring.
