EkoNiva has always been famed for the use of cutting-edge technologies. Some years ago, the adoption of the herd management system allowed the company to scale up its livestock breeding business by means of increasing the number of cattle and expanding EkoNiva’s presence in the market. State-of-the-art machinery with a wide range of precision farming functions enables specialists to use a rational and effective approach to cultivating every square metre of the vast land plots. Furthermore, digitalisation of operations on the farm is getting higher on the list of priorities. Recently, the major milk producer has made a further significant advance in this domain – the creation of a new EkoCrop mobile application for crop farming. Its development began in January. As early as November, the product was supplied to all EkoNiva-APK subsidiaries.
