Sowing of winter wheat actually amounted to 1,683 hectares against the planned 2,040 hectares.

Two factors influenced this: the weather and the war.

Unfavorable weather conditions were indicated: due to heavy rains during the last three weeks, it was necessary to take long breaks in work.

“Due to long rains, we could not timely remove the previous millet crop and start sowing winter wheat, which is why there was a delay of three weeks. We started the sowing campaign back on September 5, and due to unfavorable weather conditions, we finished it only now,” says the general director of Rostock Holding, Dmytro Kupavtsev.

Despite the large-scale military aggression, Rostock Holding managed to conduct an almost full-fledged sowing campaign. Despite the risks, cruise missiles and extreme conditions, the company’s employees show great courage and bravery to continue sowing and harvesting.

“This year, the harvest took place in extreme conditions, due to the war on the part of the Russian Federation. Autumn sowing is like another test. But we continue to work no matter what. Combine harvesters, which harvested crops in Ukrainian fields during the war, rightfully became one of the symbols of resilience and optimism of Ukrainians,” comments Dmytro Kupavtsev.

The next steps of the Rostock Holding company are the harvesting of sunflowers and corn.
