In addition, usage of the technology of diversified fertilizer application allows increasing the oilseed yield by 4.66%. The company is closely monitoring the transportation route of the harvested crop from fields to the granaries, which assists reducing the losses.

Also, Svarog West Group plans to found its own network of meteorological stations, and actively use drone aircraft to analyze the condition of crops and receive more detailed information.
