GeoPard and Kernel signed an agreement to work on the application of digital solutions for sustainable agriculture. The collaboration started in the spring of 2020 with the sowing of cornfields at a variable rate based on GeoPard multi-layer maps.
“It is my pleasure to announce the cooperation with one of the largest Ukrainian agricultural company “Kernel” controlling more than 0.5 million hectares (1.2 million acres) of farmland. Ukraine is a major crop player with rich agricultural resources and strong potential. We are excited to provide innovative and effective solutions for holdings and service companies in the Black Sea region.” – Vladimir Klinkov, co-founder of GeoPard Agriculture.
“We are expanding our range of digital solutions through partnership with the GeoPard company. Over the past few years, we have been evaluating different methods for defining and using productivity zones. For large areas, analysis of long-term data on vegetation and yield maps is most suitable. Further, taking into account the productivity of the zones, we adjust the seeding rates and fertilizer rates.” – noted Yevgenii Sapizhenko, Deputy Agribusiness Director for Innovation and Digital Development.
Kernel – the world’s leading and the largest in Ukraine producer and exporter of sunflower oil, and a major supplier of agricultural products from the Black Sea region to world markets. Kernel exports its products into more than 80 countries of the world.
