Winter Crop Yield at “KSG Agro” Reaches its Maximum Levels 

The harvesting campaign of winter wheat and winter barley is being carried out on the farms of the “KSG Agro” agricultural holding

According to the press service of the agricultural holding, harvesting of winter wheat and winter barley is possible due to the full provision of all farms of the holding with the necessary agricultural equipment. This activity has led to the fact that this year the yield of winter crops is significantly higher than the average statistical indicators for the last 5 years.

It is noted that the harvesting of winter wheat is carried out on an area of 7,15 thousand hectares, and winter barley on 1,85 thousand hectares. As of today, the process of harvesting winter barley has already been completed, while winter wheat has been harvested by 20%. 

“For example, if on average in recent years 32 kg/ha of winter wheat and 34 kg/ha of winter barley were harvested, now these figures are tentatively 48-49 kg/ha of winter wheat and 47 kg/ha of winter barley”. As for the weather conditions, despite the abundance of moisture, their influence on the yield was ambiguous. On the one hand, precipitation helped us, which was abundant, but on the other hand, the hail and rains with heavy winds significantly reduced the yield of winter barley for us - we started with 53 centners/ha and finished 47 centners/ha,” says the production director KSG Agro Dmytro Emelchenko.

KSG Agro is one of the leading agricultural holdings in Ukraine, the main activity of which is the cultivation of land and the production of agricultural crops, as well as the pig-breeding business, for which Strong-Invest LLC is responsible. The holding's shares are listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, and the KSG Agro holding itself is a member of the European Business Association.

Recently company told that they are preparing for sowing winter rape, which will start on August 1 this year.
