“The war not only caused a decrease in agricultural exports, most of which are raw materials, but also greatly aggravated the problems of material and technical support. Since investments in the processing sector are largely suspended in whole or in part due to military actions, the USAID AGRO Program is a good option for companies to attract additional finance for the development of facilities for processing grain, oilseed and leguminous crops into value-added products”, – emphasized the director of the Department of Agro-Industrial Development Tetyana Hetman of Lviv OVA.

We would like to remind you that within the framework of the USAID AGRO Program, the distribution of fertilizers for spring grain and oilseed crops of the 2024 season has begun.
