Partnering opportunity

Technology for resource-saving agriculture utilising minimal pre-tillage and post-tillage process in the agricultural complex.

Summary

A Ukrainian private company with its own experimental sites develops, uses and offers technology to improve the efficiency of agricultural enterprises by reducing fuel costs, fertilizers, labor costs, time, spare parts, and reducing depreciation costs. The authors are looking for partners to implement this technology. The company offers long-term cooperation under a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Partner sought

Type: Agricultural business enterprises engaged in plant growing. Role: The partner must be engaged in plant growing and have the resources to switch to resource-saving agriculture. The partner must be prepared to change the structure of his own enterprise and change the personnel policy. Development and introduction of new document flow of the enterprise and purchase of new equipment.

Description

Ukrainian private company was founded in 1991 in the central part of Ukraine and focused on providing farmers with comprehensive solutions to improve their efficiency. Since 1997, at its own production facilities used also as pilot sites, the company began to introduce resource-saving technologies No-Till. Over the past 20 years, the company has developed its own model for the development and implementation of agricultural projects with a comprehensive approach to the solution of production and management tasks. No-Till or conservation agriculture is a concept of resource-saving production of agricultural crops that aims to achieve an acceptable profit along with a high level of self-sustaining production with a simultaneous protection of environment. There are three interrelated principles of conservation agriculture: - Continuous zero or low disturbance of soil surface (direct seeding or planting); - Constant availability of organic matter on soil surface, such as crop residues or cover crops; - Diversified crop rotations in case of annual crops cultivation or a mixture of crops, including legumes in case of perennial crops cultivation. With zero-till, soil stays undisturbed from harvest to seeding and from seeding to the next harvest. Mechanical disturbance of soil is only direct seeding into undisturbed soil. Control of weeds is based on understanding their biological features and using crop rotations, crop residues and timely application of crop protection chemicals in minimum amounts. The use of No-Till technology in agricultural production can increase the efficiency of the enterprise by reducing the cost of fuel, fertilizers, labor costs, time, spare parts, reducing depreciation costs. Reducing interference with the ecosystem and the use of pesticides allows you to start organic farming. The company is looking for partners and offers long-term cooperation under a commercial agreement with technical support. The company will make a development model for the enterprise-partner, provide support for its implementation at all stages and train personnel.

Advantages and innovations

- Savings of resources (fuel, fertilizers, labor costs, time, spare parts, reduction of depreciation costs). - Increase of profitability of farming (increase of returns on money invested into production). - Maintenance and restoration of soil tilth (improvement of its chemical, physical and biological properties, increase of soil organic matter content). - Reduction or elimination of soil erosion (no need to spend additional money to solve this problem). - Ecological management of weeds (weeds are controlled by means of proper crop rotations, seeding dates and cover crops). - Increase of soil moisture content (due to improved moisture accumulation and moisture retention in the soil). - Reduction of yield dependence on weather conditions. With today’s organization of agriculture the yield is 80% weather dependant, whereas with No-till the influence of climate and weather is reduced to 20%. Other 80% account for technology and agricultural management, which are united into one system. - Yield increase (since soil structure is improving, No-Till allows to harvest higher yields compared with traditional tillage). - Improvement of grain quality (soil tilth is improved, nutrients are accumulated; this leads to improvement of grain quality). - Agriculture means establishment of a specific culture of interaction with nature.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
