KYIV. Aug 10 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Ukraine’s Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Kyivstar mobile operator with the aim of introducing modern technologies into the production processes in agriculture.
According to a report on the ministry’s website, the agreement provides for the creation of conditions for the development of small and medium-sized farmers through the introduction of a digital platform.
“The developed digital platform for agricultural producers will be an effective tool for communications between ministry representatives and the key players of the agricultural sector, as well as for providing consultations and necessary information on government support programs or other information important to producers,” Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food for European Integration Olha Trofimtseva said.
According to her, using modern information tools will help agricultural producers more accurately and qualitatively analyze and forecast their activities.
