There are no translations available.

Average sunflower yield in Ukraine in 2013/14 MY is expected 18 c/ha. Gross harvest of sunflower seeds in Ukraine this year may reach 9 million tons. Forecasts of productivity of sunflower on the Agroliga Group's fields are at good level. The areas of 3 008 hectares was sown. In 2013 the figure is expected to average yields 38-42 t / ha. Last year this culture was sown at 2 701 hectares, from which collected 11 804,40 tons, with average productivity 43,7 c/ha.

 

This high yield due to the fact that Limogreyn hybrid varieties with high oil content were planted, which last year showed a good result. Also micronutrients fertilizing technologies were applied. In the past year, at the several fields experimentally has been applied chelate fertilizer, which it proved, and expanded this year for the all fields of the Group.

 

The weather conditions this year were favorable for sunflower. We expect a great harvest, not only here, but also all over Ukraine, which is cause for optimism in the availability of raw materials for refinery.
