Blog: March 12, 2018: The $100 Million Dollar Scientology TV Network is Launched. Today's Programming Includes an Episode on Potato Farming in Russia - 2020-03-12
Scientology boss David Miscavige launched Scientology TV two year ago today. Today's programming includes a piece on potato farming in Russia. Given the very limited nature of this topic, we were expecting an historical piece on how Stalin's efforts at collectivist farming (Коллективизация) failed diastrously in the period 1928-1940. Instead, Scientology reported on Russian Scientologists Andrey and Zoya Sinitsyny and how they used modern methods to turn around their struggling potato farm.
Spoiler Alert: Like so many modern farmers, the Sinitsyny's use drones, thermal imaging, and GPS-equipped automated tractors to help increase their agricultural yield.
We learn that the couple's biggest customer is Frito Lay which turns their potatoes into potato chips. Viewers further discover that the Sinitsyny's created an Org Board for their farm so that farmhands would know what their jobs are on the potato farm. And like all other farmers in the world, the couple use statistics to measure and improve their crop yield.
