Ecologization of the plant production and technology of post-harvest storage of plant products is relevant in terms of implementing the principles of sustainable development, because simultaneously with the production of high-quality food leads to a decrease in environmental impacts, including to climate change. The article considers the use of biopreparations in the potato supply chain, including harvesting, agricultural production technology, transportation, and long-term storage. The purpose of the study was to assess the reduction of the carbon footprint of the potato supply chain with the use of biological control agents, as well as to determine the economic results in comparison with the traditional growing technology. On an example of the Nevskiy variety of potatoes traditional for the Northwest of Russia it is shown that after biological treatment yield increases by 17 %, mass fraction of a dry substance increases on the average by 3,5 %, the maintenance of nitrates, losses at storage that on the whole leads to decrease in a carbon footprint and can serve as substantiation of necessity of application of biological means of protection of vegetable raw materials is reduced.
