THE FIRST UKRAINIAN AGRICULTURAL CLUSTER CREATED IN KHARKIV OBLAST
Innovation and educational cluster 'Agrotekhnika' created in Kharkiv Oblast as a part of Lozova Forging-Mechanical Plant producing agricultural machinery.
The cluster unites plants, farms and agricultural universities. Earlier Lozova Forging-Mechanical Plant cooperated just with Kharkiv National Techincal University of Agriculture. Now the list of educational institutions is significantly extended: Universities from Sumy, Mykolaiv, Melitopol (Zaporizhzhia Oblast) have joined as well.
The cluster will encourage domestic production development, agrarians will get cheap domestic machinery and universities will test seeding-machines and harrows for further improvements (being tested on so-called research fields different machine defects are detected and fixed by engineers).
