The seed production facility of the international agriculture R&D company Corteva Agriscience, located in Stasi village of Poltava region has made the first direct export of premium Pioneer® genetics sowing material to foreign producer. The shipment of PR37N01 corn hybrid was made to Agrodairy, one of Azerbaijan's largest agricultural companies.

Direct export to foreign producer is the first experience and potentially new business direction for the seed production facility in Ukraine, which since its opening in 2013 was focused on the local needs of Ukrainian producers and internal needs of the company. Up to this time, the export of sowing material was made inside the company to European facilities of Corteva Agriscience, mostly to Romania and Italy for further processing, packaging and selling by local teams.

PR37N01 hybrid that was shipped to Azerbaijan belongs to middle-late ones and easily adapts to agroclimatic conditions of this country. It is resistant to dry weather conditions and generates high yields even with low soil cultivation, while also demonstrates stable performance along with excellent water yielding capacity. The seeds were packed in bags with a special hologram, unique protection system against counterfeit IZON®.

“Corteva Agriscience has been working for many years on Azerbaijan market. We have been developing this market and continuously increasing the volume of sales. Export of the sowing material to Azerbaijan is an important step for further improvement of our cooperation and, also for the development of production in Ukraine. It’s another confirmation and recognition of the quality of the seeds produced in Ukraine. Corteva plans to extend export to other countries to provide access to innovative sowing material produced in Ukraine to more agriculture producers, not only to national but to foreign producers, as well,” - said Yevhen Demyanenko, Business development manager of Corteva Agriscience in CIS countries.  

The company also plans to export seeds to Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, and after Ukraine is added to the list of countries, from which the export to the EU is allowed, to European countries, as well.
