Soybeans of Ukrainian origin are another crop that Conors is delivering. It is a third-millennium crop due to its high ecological properties. The booming soybean expansion is caused by strong demand for this crop as a source of high quality protein in terms of amino acid composition, which is used for both feed and food purposes. Soybeans are as well a source of valuable vegetable oil used both nutritionally and industrially.
The key reasons for rising soybean production in Ukraine include its promptly developing poultry sector, which is the main domestic consumer of soybeans, as well as good export outlooks, which are caused, apart from other factors, by a boom in the European and global biofuel production.
Ukraine has considerable areas with favorable agroclimatic conditions for growing soybeans and obtaining stable harvests. Since the global population number is rising and increasingly appreciable damage is caused to the environment by human economic activities related to food production, optimizing the food resources production and use is vital for survival of the mankind. Soybean is an indispensable and most promising crop in this respect.
