The largest share is that of sunflower (32.3 thou. ha) and soybean (32.1 thou. ha), the allocated area for corn this year is 21.7 thou. ha, potatoes were planted on 1.7 thou. ha, and spring wheat was sown on 1.6 thou. ha.

In spite of the quarantine restrictions, the Continental Farmers Group believes that this year’s spring sowing campaign is the most successful over the past years: the company succeeded to hold it within a clearly planned time.

The company timely and fully procured all the necessary spare parts, seed grains, and mineral fertilizers and it replenished its vehicle fleet with new self-propelled and towed agricultural machinery.

"We were successful in sowing spring crops within a rather short period of time, as planned. Such promptness paid off because we could use the available moisture in the soil with the maximum efficiency, given the fact that, unfortunately, each season its amount dwindles away in the spring," Vitalii Stavinchuk, Continental Farmers Group Production Director summed up. "I would also like to note that, this season, all our employees showed good teamwork and their readiness to overcome new challenges. For the first time this year, all the agricultural workers had to operate under special quarantine conditions, but we managed and are continuing to perform our production plans."

As a reminder, the SALIC Ukrainian subsidiary, CFG (Continental Farmers Group), completed the merging of businesses with Mriya Agriholding. Since June 2019, the combined company works under a single brand, Continental Farmers Group, cultivating land in 5 regions of Western Ukraine. The re-launched company received a renewed brand identity.
