The Agro-industrial Group “AgroligaGroup” is completely ready to begin the spring field works.

“It is obvious that a good harvest depends significantly on the invested resources – material and human – and tightening the purse strings on these components is unacceptable. We remember the folk wisdom ‘You reap what you sow’. Therefore, we sow only quality seed materials from well known manufacturers of Syngenta, Limagrain, KBC. We put into operation highly efficient machinery equipped with the latest GPS navigation technology, and all personnel took regular specialized training. This year we plan to crop about 3000 hectares with sunflower and corn, 1000 hectares with barley, and 600 hectares with corn,” Alexander Berdnik, President of AgroligaGroup told us.

“There are no trifles in the preparation for spring sowing, it is important what you sow, but what is more important is to do it on time. The seeds, fertilizers, and fuel – everything should be provided in advance in order to sow in the optimal period of time,” Alexander Berdnik adds.

“In our country, agricultural business is not a boring and measured one, but a GAME starting with a capital letter. It involves gambling with circumstances which are hard to predict and difficult to change. There are no ready-made universal solutions or preplanned invariably winning strategies. No one can guarantee that the seeds sown in the autumn will overwinter, sprout, slaughter and give a good harvest. In spite of all anticipated difficulties, in autumn we sowed about 3,400 hectares of fields with winter crops including 58% of wheat, 31% rape, 11% barley. The undamaged condition of the sprouts after wintering is approximately 95%. Favorable weather conditions in the winter of 2016/2017 allow us to hope for the high yields.” the chief agronomist, Vladimir Drachuk, shared his opinion.

In February 22 – 25, the customers of the “European Agrarian Company” from six regions of Ukraine, including President of the Agroliga Group Alexander Berdnik visited the CNH Industrial Plant in Belgium. The trip, organized jointly by CNH Industrial and EAC, was aimed at familiarizing Ukrainian farmers with the process of manufacturing of the NewHolland combine-harvesters which are popular in Ukraine.

The plant located in the Belgian city of Zedelgem is not only a manufacturer, but also a center developing new harvesting technologies. It is the place where new technologies are introduced, machines of new generation are manufactured and the quality of equipment is tested. The best experts in the field of design, development and manufacturing of agricultural equipment work here. The results of such efforts attract farmers from all over the world who choose the NewHolland machinery every year, and 98% of the products manufactured in Belgium are exported abroad.

The tour of Ukrainian farmers began with the presentation of the plant, and continued with watching the main stages of production. The guests could see the processes of metal preparation and cutting, mechanical processing and forming of parts, robotic welding, painting and final assembly of the machinery. Every day 22 new harvesters come down from the assembly line of the CNH plant in Zedelgem and are immediately delivered to customers around the world. At the end of the tour the guests visited the exhibition of samples of new equipment.

Besides the Plant tour the clients of the European Agrarian Company visited Bruges and the capital of Belgium, Brussels.

The time spent in Belgium ran fast but the unique experience and knowledge gained by our employees will be used successfully the Agroliga Group enterprises.  The delegates are grateful to the “European Agrarian Company” for the invitation, organization and financial support of the trip.

Mr Berdnik, the information about the Company’s plans to begin the construction of a new oil extraction plant appeared on the AGROLIGA GROUP site. Could you give the details on the project?

Answering your question I would like to mention that the launch of the extraction process and the production extension of 2017 is a part of our corporate strategy and, if my memory serves me, we published the road map for this project in 2011 so this is not exactly news (laughs). But, speaking seriously, this project is a top-priority for us and having the tight schedule to carry it out we have to work hard. We plan to triple the processing capacity to 10000 ton/month and to launch the new extraction line.

We will start the first stage by the new season of 2017. Having launched the new plant our share in the vegetable oil market will reach 10 – 12%.

You are planning to increase the processing capacity but, it is hardly a secret, that there are a lot of sun flower processing plants, and the aggregate production of sun flower seeds cannot satisfy the growing demand for raw materials. Are you apprehensive that you will have to compete with bigger players on the market?

The market of sun flower oil has always been very competitive but today the processing capacity is not the main advantage in the competition. I would like to highlight to decisive factors which are applying new technologies and the shortest logistic root of delivering the raw materials.

The preferable location of our plant in the centre of districts where sun flower is traditionally harvested gives us the advantages in raw materials accessibility. The launch of the extraction line will allow 10% increasing of the oil output comparatively with the press technology of oil production.  And at the output instead of cake we will have sun flower meal with 38% of protein content and remaining oil content not exceeding 0,5-1%. These factors and our long-standing experience allow us speaking of the competition with such big players at the market as Kernel, Glencore or Cargill.


Your site informs that at the launch the plant will be one of the most technologically advanced enterprises on the market. What innovations will be applied and how do you estimate the integrated value of the project?

The total financing amounts to $ 9 mln., 6.7 mln. of which will be financed from the attracted external sources of funding.

The innovation of technological decisions will allow:

- the possibility to change the volume of the raw materials processing from 100 000 ton to 180000 without additional investments into the equipment (second line) and with small investments the capacity can be increased to 280000 ton / year;

- the possibility to reset the equipment for production of soy and canola oils without additional investments into the equipment.

The project is ambitious. Could you tell me what have been already done?

We have accomplished a lot but there is great work ahead. Today we have a building site with all necessary engineering lines and systems including railways. The permission and technical documentation is almost ready. Through the work of the financial department we were able to attract the finances necessary for the project investment, and the first preliminary payments for manufacturing and delivery of the equipment have been made. The earth-works are being performed on the building site because it is important to construct the foundations before winter comes.

By August 15 the Production Units of AGROLIGA had finished harvesting of the early grain crops. More than 21,725 ​​tons of grain were harvested from the area of ​​3950 thousand hectares, that is 44% of the total area of the processed fields.

We got the gross yield of winter wheat (one of the key crops in the rotation) 56 t / ha, which is 8% more comparatively to the last year. In addition, the favorable weather conditions and integrated agro-technical measures allowed getting the grain of the highest class, with the protein and gluten content that corresponds to the characteristics of 2 – 3 class.

Also, the balance of the results of barley harvesting was drawn up. The winter variety of the intensive type “Lura” of Czech breeding with the distinguishing feature of high frost resistance gave the gross yield of 62.9 c / ha. We harvested 52.1 c / ha of the spring mid-season barley “Helios”.

In general, the grain yield of early harvesting meets the expectations of the Company’s management and exceeds by 15-20% the average data for Ukraine.

The Company achieves such results due to the persistent work on skills development for engineers and agronomists, technological improvements of the fertilizers applying, as well as paying special attention to minimization of losses during harvesting.

With the financial support of Raiffeisen Bank, the modern combine harvester - JohnDeereW660 with the header of 625R series has been added to the park of agricultural machinery in the current year.

This equipment makes it possible to adapt automatically to the changing topography of the field and change the cutting height that minimizes the losses during harvesting, and the possibility to adjust the pressure on the ground allows harvesting, regardless of weather conditions.
