International donors will provide Ukrainian farmers with over 13 tons of vegetable seeds

13.5 tons of vegetable seeds from international donors will be provided to farmers and residents of the de-occupied territories of Ukraine.

Source. This was reported by the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine.

Details. As reported, the first deliveries have already been received by micro-farms and households in four communities in Poltava, Kyiv, and Dnipro regions.

The report emphasizes that these 13.5 tons of seeds will allow for sowing on 1126 hectares of agricultural land.

The seeds provided include beans, peas, beets, carrots, eggplant, onions and radishes.

The All-Ukrainian Association of Communities (AAC) and the All-Ukrainian Agrarian Council (AAC) are collecting information on seed requests. After that, the seeds will be distributed according to requests.

According to the ministry, the USAID Agricultural and Rural Development Program (AGRO) will provide logistical support for the project and free delivery of seeds from international donors to communities.

Background. As a reminder, large volumes of Ukrainian grain exports to Europe have forced European farmers to ask for support from governments.
