Private Enterprise «Agroecology»
Private Enterprise “Agroecology” is the oldest Ukrainian company implementing only organic technologies in its work. Back in 1975 we focused on cooperation with nature in our manufacturing process by starting the introduction of subsurface tillage. In 1978 we refused using herbicides and other agrochemicals, and in a few years we stopped using mineral fertilizers as well. During 40 years the company has been creating its own model of organic farming which is based on soil surface cultivation and wide application of various organic fertilizers. The management system is aimed both at manufacturing organic products and preserving and increasing soil fertility, protecting the environment, implementing the principle of sustainable development. Our innovative approaches to farming are recognized by scientific and agrarian communities in Ukraine and in other countries; they are protected by numerous patents. The company is headed by Semen Antonets – the patriarch of organic farming in Ukraine. In 2010 the film «Solutions locales pour un désordre global» created by the famous French film director Coline Serreau represented our management methods as a standard for solving agriculture problems all over the world.
The company carries out its production activities in an area of over 6700 ha located in Shishatsky and Zenkovsky districts of the Poltava region (Central Ukraine). Crop products processing is performed using our own manufacturing facilities.
The main field of the company’s activities is dairy and beef cattle breeding. We have 6.7 thousand head of milk and dairy cattle.
