The key event was the presentation of the MHP program “Organic Hectare”. Dmytro Melnyk, Head of the Energy Innovation Department of PJSC “Myronivsky Hliboproduct”, said that MHP offers pilot fertilization based on Biogas facility to neighboring farms and agricultural enterprises in Vinnytsia region. In exchange for effective biofertilizers, in turn, farmers provide straw from their lands.
