In 2011 in terms of the existing base and acquired experience AGROTRADE Group has created the elite seed farm "Kolos" ALLC, that is a member of “Ukrainian seed community” association.

The aim of the farm is to take a leadership among similar businesses in Kharkiv Oblast. So far, the farm is able to respond not only to Group`s demand but also to provide with elite seeds other companies of the region.

Currently more than 100 000 ha in Kharkiv, Poltava, Sumy, Kirovograd, Chernygiv, Lugansk and Dnipropetrovsk Oblasts are annually sown with the seeds originally produced by the company.
