“I could not refuse the requirement of this young constructor,” admits Turakhon Mamatov. Today, our technology is in demand in the innovation technologies market. As, if to use this technology, cotton stored in the bottom of bales will never turn yellow.
There are not a few scholars keeping to develop ideas of their tutors. Thus, discoveries in the field of study of alkaloid plants, made by the renowned Professor-chemist from the Namangan State University, have found their application in developments of his students Abdurashid Karimov and Farhod Khoshimov.
