The Agrotrade Group in spring 2019 will invest $1.2 million in the upgrade of its agricultural machinery fleet, the press service of the company has reported.
“The company will purchase five tractors and three cultivators. The total amount of investments is about $ 1.2 million,” the agro holding’s press service told Interfax-Ukraine.
According to the press service, Agrotrade intends to unify the equipment of the holding’s enterprises, which will help minimize costs.
“We are going to ensure that all the tractors will be made by the same manufacturer and of the same model range. At the moment, approximately 90% of our equipment is Case and New Holland, and about 10% is John Deere. We plan to gradually abandon the latter,” the press service reported, citing Financial and Operations Director at Agrotrade Olena Vorona.
Agrotrade is a vertically integrated holding, engaged in production, processing, storage and trade in agricultural products. It manages 72,000 hectares of farmland in Chernihiv, Sumy, Poltava and Kharkiv regions.
