The company offers not only high-quality seeds, environmentally friendly plant protection products, microfertilizers from leading international producers, but also productive technological solutions for various industries, including soybean seed production as a strategic crop.

On August 29, the company “Zakhid Agrobiznes” together with partners held the annual scientific and practical Field Day, dedicated to the peculiarities of soybean cultivation. The event has traditionally been organized on the basis of the agricultural enterprise PE “Zahidniy Bug” in Brody district of Lviv region.
During the seminar, a speaker from Kharkiv National University named after VN Karazin, Candidate of Biological Sciences, Alexander Akulov, spoke about soybean diseases and measures to prevent them. Next – a review of demonstration soybean crops of Canadian, French and Austrian selection and the presentation of new exclusive varieties.
Prograin soybean varieties – the results are impressive!
While visiting the demo field, the guests of the event had the opportunity to see with their own eyes the results of the joint work of the originators, distributor and seed producer. More than ten varieties of soybeans were presented to the participants, the most attention was drawn to the varieties Prograin. Volodymyr Yakubets, a representative of Prograin, spoke about them and the activities of Semences Prograin Inc.
“The seed company SemencesPrograinInc is engaged in the selection of only one crop – soybeans, and has the largest collection of seed material in the world. 36 varieties of this legume have been registered in Ukraine, and in 2020 three more new varieties will enter the market.
In Canada, the company works in three areas of selection, in Ukraine we sell two of them: we grow seeds for intensive technology (IP) and seeds with high protein content (QualiPro). The protein content reaches 41-44% and 45-47%, respectively.
All seeds are imported from Canada with the appropriate certificates confirming the quality of elite seeds. The yield potential of most varieties reaches more than 5 tons per hectare, and the average in the fields of domestic farmers is 4-4.5 t / ha.
It should be added that Prograin soybean crops do not need to be thickened (and this is one of the big mistakes of farmers). For each variety there is a recommended density for harvesting.
The company is also famous in the market for the fact that soybean seeds have a large mass of thousands of seeds – from 200 to 290 g, which has a positive effect on yield.
For the Western region of Ukraine on the demopol of PE “Zakhidnyy Buh Bug” there are five varieties: among them exclusive to the distributor of LLC “Zakhid Ahrobizn” – Kyoto, Amadeus and a novelty – the variety Zelda, as well as varieties Lybid and Kofu, “- said the expert.
