Complex field expertise
Agrogeneration

AgroGeneration Agroholding is among the top ten largest holdings in Ukraine today. The company implements a system of savings-Lean Six Sigma (LSS), which maximizes the optimization of all production processes. So, to optimize the use of resources for the plant nutrition system, the company conducted a comprehensive agro-diagnostics of almost all its fields.

About project

“We began to implement comprehensive agrodiagnostics since 2016, in cooperation with AgriLab. Although the soils were analyzed even before, “said Zakhar Shelukhin, chief agronomist of the Eastern cluster.
The land of the Eastern cluster of AgroGeneration is about 70 thousand hectares, and complex agrodiagnostics has been conducted for 50 thousand hectares. These fields are located in the Kharkiv and Sumy regions, where winter wheat, sunflower, corn, soy beans, peas and tortillas are grown.

Results

Conducting a comprehensive soil expertise allowed the company to optimize the use of resources and avoid unnecessary costs. “The results showed: in the fields of Sumy region, we almost do not need to add phosphorous fertilizers, that are the most expensive,” says Zakhar Shelukhin. – After analyzing the soil, we redistribute mineral fertilizers between the fields: we introduce them more rationally, we do not place where it is not necessary, and where necessary – increase the norm. Compared to previous years, when the coverage of the analysis was not so great, the use of fertilizers decreased. The recommendation, given by AgriLab, is quite logical; they can be carried out without excessive fertilizer standards, and given that production should be primarily cost-effective. Here, even at the stage of calculations, we see that the cost of fertilizer – within the limits of the norm, and the results of yield yields meet our expectations. So, having introduced fertilizers according to the recommendations, we got the harvest that was planned. ”
Despite the weather factors, the farm managed to achieve the targets. And on winter wheat the result even exceeded expectations by 10%. However, the main objective with which agrodiagnostics was carried out is the optimization of the use of resources. And this was achieved.
“Nutrition system is just one of the elements of the growing system. But the element is very important: about 40% of the cost of culture is precisely on the cost of the power system. Therefore, it depends on how it is planned and realized. By the way, we purchased fertilizers before we got the results of agrodiagnostics. Therefore, tons of 300 ammophos from the volume that we planned to make remained the next year. At the same time, they did not feel the deficit of the elements or the decline in yields “, – says the agronomist.
