This year, Caspian Agro marked its 15th anniversary and gathered around 300 companies from 20 countries. EkoNiva presented its pedigree dairy cattle along with the entire seed portfolio including in-house bred varieties.

‘Two years ago, EkoNiva delivered the first batches of spring and winter cereal seeds to Azerbaijan. It’s safe to say that our company is just tapping into this market. Caspian Agro 2022 enables us to estimate the needs of local farmers, build business contacts and thus expand our presence in the region and increase the sales’, says Yevgeniy Kucheryavenko, Executive Director of EkoNiva-Semena.

In the republic, crop farming prevails over livestock farming, with cereal production taking one of the largest shares. Sixty percent of arable lands is used for growing cereals, in particular, wheat, rice, maize and barley. Recently, the local growers have also developed an interest in soya beans.

‘The republic needs high-quality seeds of winter wheat and soya beans. EkoNiva offers highly adaptive in-house bred winter wheat varieties, such as EN Cepheus, EN Taygeta, EN Albireo, our novelties EN Mars and EN Photon along with soya bean varieties EN Argenta, EN Argument and EN Akcent’, recounts Aleksandr Novosyolov, Sales Representative of EkoNiva-Semena.

During the trade show, EkoNiva specialists also met owners of local businesses, representatives of Azerbaijan State Agricultural University, Azerbaijan Ministry of Agriculture and other authorities. These meetings resulted in reaching agreements on cooperation and conducting commercial and in-house bred variety trials in the republic.
