Despite the difficult situation, in 2022, Ukraine was able to resume the export of agricultural products and revive the market again. After all, the main mission of the domestic agricultural sector remains to ensure food security of Ukraine and the world. And today, agricultural producers' access to innovative resource-saving technologies is crucial: during the cultivation, harvesting, storage and export of crops.
This year, as a company integrating innovative solutions, we see opportunities for the agricultural industry:
✔️Resource saving: the decision to carry out technological operations for the introduction of pesticides and fertilizers will be made depending on the level of financial stability of the enterprise and the readiness to invest in the future harvest. However, betting on food security, such savings should be "reasonable" and justified. Application of fertilizers by agricultural drones means fuel savings of up to 95% and the opportunity to accumulate funds for other critically important areas, without crop losses. We are sure that the level of integration of spraying drones will increase this year.
✔️ Energy independence. All businesses and households experienced this block of tests on their own cases, and the question of having a constant and independent power supply from the central power grid will remain relevant throughout the year. Moreover, it will become a trend in the near future. It's just a matter of time and people's willingness to invest.
"During the war, a lot of companies suspended their activities, but we, on the contrary, began to develop intensively, to create new jobs, because we understand that we are responsible for the most important directions that need to be developed: energy security, food security, general security. We are engaged in creating markets in these fields and are an international player exporting and importing technology, with many like-minded and active partners. In particular, over the past year, the number of our partners has increased to 840, and the total distribution network for our consumers has exceeded 3,000 different locations. But we could not do it ourselves. The ecosystem of unmanned solutions in agriculture was created by agricultural producers themselves. Their achievements are the lion's share of our success. Thanks to their innovative views, Ukraine has remained the largest and most dynamic player in the agricultural robotics market. We have become a generator country and, in addition, have taken responsibility for our own energy independence," commented Valery Yakovenko, co-founder of the DroneUA company.
The dynamic format of the event demonstrated that today the Ukrainian agricultural market does not simply stop in extremely difficult conditions for business, but is constantly progressing, looking for new ways of development and offering new solutions to ensure food security and energy independence of Ukraine.
