NIBULON’s 22 production branches are located in 12 regions of Ukraine, both in the North where favourable weather conditions promote high yields and in the Southern and Eastern regions with drought weather conditions. Despite this, NIBULON annually demonstrates high harvesting results. This season is not an exception.
According to Kostiantyn Khmelnytskyy, Deputy General Director of Agricultural Production, this year the company has achieved record production volumes of about 367 thousand tons. It is a 9% growth in the agricultural commodity production as opposed to 2018. NIBULON’s branches harvested more than 160 thousand tons of early grain crops and 207 thousand tons of late grain crops.
“This is the best result since NIBULON started its operations. We have achieved a lot this season to be proud of”, continues Kostiantyn Khmelnytskyi, “NIBULON’s main achievement in the 2019 season is a record wheat yield - 138 thousand tons, sunflower yield – 25.0 dt/ha, and sorghum yield – 61.1 dt/ha. These are unprecedented results in the company’s history”.
The company’s branches apply modern agricultural technologies and machinery, use comprehensive technologies to grow agricultural commodities, which ensure high harvesting results. The highest sunflower yield results were demonstrated by Prybuzhanivska branch (Mykolaiv region) - 35.2 dt/ha, Mria branch (Khmelnytskyi region) and Kupyansk branch (Kharkiv region) – 29.1 dt/ha each. Khmilnyk branch (Vinnytsia region) and Romanivska branch (Zhytomyr region) became leaders in corn yield, having harvested 106.4 dt/ha and 97.0 dt/ha respectively.
