"Azersheker" held an event related to the application of modern farming technologies

An event on "Application of modern resource-saving agricultural technologies" was held in the agropark of "Azersheker" LLC located in the Jeyranchol area of ​​Shamkir region. Employees of the relevant state institutions and farmers participated in the event jointly organized by the Agency for Development of Economic Zones (ADEZ) and "Azersheker" LLC.

At the event, information was given on the advantages of applying the "Strip till" technology, and the presentation of the "Mzuri" technique was held. It was reported that this Polish-made equipment was used for the first time during repeated corn and soybean planting at the farm of "Azersheker" LLC located in Jeyranchol. The advantage of "Mzuri" is that it performs 4 processes (deep softening, deep fertilizer processing, precise sowing of different types of seeds and burying of seeds with fixing wheels) at the same time. The main purpose of using this technique is to save water and fuel, preserve the fertile layer of the soil and eliminate the effects of toxic gases released into the air.

The participants of the event inspected the corn field planted with the "Strip till" technology of "Azersheker" LLC and the barley sowing in the grain farm!
