ND model farm to be established in Ukraine
FARGO (AP) — A group of North Dakota agribusinesses plans to demonstrate and sell equipment and supplies in the Ukraine.
Lt. Gov. Jack Dalrymple and state trade officials on Friday announced that a leading Ukrainian agribusiness, Ukrainian Agriculture AB, is to operate a North Dakota “model farm” in Ukraine that will serve as a dealer location for North Dakota farm equipment and supplies.
Participating North Dakota companies will work with the state Trade Office and the Ukrainian company to develop marketing events that will draw prospective buyers from throughout Ukraine.
Ukrainian Agriculture AB is owned by investors from the United States and Sweden. It is a leading Ukrainian producer of grains and oilseed crops.
