    союзсортсемовощ etc.

    Привет всем!

    I'm working on a translation and have come accross some lovely abbreviations. I have already found several but I have no idea where to begin to find a solution for the following.

    в/о союзсортсемовощ
    чл.-корр. АН СССР

    There's also one phrase I don't know how to translate:

    на рационализаторское предложение

    Спасибо заранее!

    My guess:

    Всесоюзное объединение "Союзсортсемовощ" (что-то связанное с семенами сортовых овощных культур).
    член-корреспондент Академии Наук СССР

    рационализаторское предложение - Soviet bureaucratic slang, means a suggestion for optimizing working process.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Союзсортсемовощ is a word from hell, derived from:
    Союз = a union
    Сортовые семена = certified (commercial) seeds
    Овощи = vegetables
    Send me a PM if you need me.
