Field day "Stiyka Ukraina"
First field day of "Stiyka Ukraina" horticultural project took place in Kyiv Region last Friday.
Last Friday was the kick-off of the season for vegetables, fruit and berry production in the framework of the project “Stiyka Ukraina” supported by RVO and the Dutch Embassy in Ukraine.
Horticultural production was very much affected by russian aggression in Ukraine. Current producers have to adopt to the new challenging circumstances while many small and medium farmers just starting their production in the Western, Northern and Central regions of Ukraine.
During the first demo field this year the verieties and growing technologies of strawberries, carrots, beetroots, lettuce, pumpkins, cucumbers as well as greens have been presented.
The event gathered Ukrainian companies as well as representatives of the Dutch suppliers in Ukraine. The topics for the next field days, webinars and events have been discussed.
“Stiyka Ukraina” is supported by Rijk Zwaan, Enza, Bejo, Limgroup, Fresh Forward, ABBreeding, RAPO, Koppert, Schrijnwerkers, Bodem&Groen, Delphy, VGB-Watertechniek, Van Kempen Koudetechniek and Holland Rosetta. Together they offer quality planting materials for horti sector, knowledge transfer during webinars and practical trainings at our demo field. Business development for starters: small farmers, women entrepreneurs, veterans and cooperatives.
