Kharkov, Odessa, Vinnitsa, Khmelnytskyi farmers responded at the invitation. They talked to each other and with Hungarian colleagues who shared their experiences for 2 days.
Anatoii Chornyi from Bukovyna confirmed information that Transcarpathia has great prospects in cultivation of apples. He also grows apples, but admits that the land is better in Transcarpatia and climatic conditions are more suitable.
Farmers were also shown the fields where seedlings are grown, in particular, new sorts that were bred selectively so that they are more resistant to diseases. By the way, such plants cost 20 to 40 hryvnia per unit in Transcarpathi while in Western Europe the same and sometimes even worse ones, are sold for 4-5 euro.
