Ukraine and Canada strengthen cooperation in the agricultural sector

Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Mykola Solsky met with the Minister of International Development of Canada and the Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada Harjit Sajjan. It is reported by “ProAgro Group” with reference to the information of the Ministry.

The subject of discussion was the storage and export of grain, the supply of alternative energy sources and the provision of the country with fertilizers. The Ukrainian minister stressed that the issue of granaries became relevant after the invasion of the aggressor in Ukraine and the blocking of exports of Ukrainian products. Despite the partial unblocking of sales and transportation, the prospect of the grain corridor remains uncertain, so the issue of storage facilities does not lose its relevance, as it ensures proper storage of the harvest – a vital product.

Mykola Solsky also spoke about the problems that farmers had to face. Adverse weather conditions and the consequences of the military invasion, which led to a shortfall in profits for this year’s production, jeopardized the financial ability of farmers to sow fields with winter wheat or barley. According to the Minister, the supply of any other grain crop that can be sown in spring will be a necessary support for farmers.

The Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine stressed the need to supply additional energy sources for farmers and agricultural producers. In addition, the parties discussed the possibility of providing Ukraine with various types of fertilizers. In particular, the supply of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.

During the meeting, the parties also outlined further concrete steps that will allow Ukraine to receive the necessary assistance and agreed to work together on a number of topics discussed. Both leaders are committed to further close cooperation in addressing bilateral agro-political issues.
