First meeting of UAС's Committee on precision farming
Meeting of Committee on precision farming of Ukrainian Agribusiness Club was held on Svarog West Group Corporation territories.
About twenty association representatives shared their experience during first meeting of Committee on precision farming of Ukrainian Agribusiness Club was held on Svarog West Group Corporation territories.
Roman Hrab, Coordinator of UAС’s Committee on precision farming, commented Committee activities and members’ cooperation specifics:
– Since the Committee foundation we have been planning that enterprises will visiting each other and precision farming practice results demonstrations will become a main format of its activities. Unfortunately, there were not precedents when companies confederated in around 10 factory-farm members for agenda review, appraise a real state of affairs and share experience. I think that this is a new level of agricultural companies’ cooperation. It says about business transparency, which is ready to merge for production processes improving.
Special attention was paid to the discussion of yield mapping systems and data processing. Examples were demonstrated on Corporation`s fields during practice meeting. As Committee members said, experience of first meeting was very productive, so it will be implemented henceforward.
Yevhenii Sapizhenko, Head of Center of precision farming of Svarog West Group Corporation, summed up this meeting results:
– UAC’s initiatives about Committee founding is an important factor of Association activities development. Today, precision farming is a one of leading trend in agro-technologies developing. We should think about effective resource using (rationalization) but not only about resource saving when we are talking about agribusiness results researching. Yield mapping is one of factors outcome that effects on land-bank using effectiveness. In the result, it is a component of equation, which can solve it. Meeting is a great opportunity to share experience. Obviously, experience of our agro-holdings can be valuable contribution in development of the Committee. And this event can be a good example for other members activities.
