Increasing Farm Productivity in Central Asia

German agricultural machinery and crop protection industry cooperating to advise the former Soviet republics of Central Asia.

Increasing Farm Productivity in Central Asia

Agriculture remains the major source of income in the former Soviet republics of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. However, many farmers lack the basic management skills and knowledge of modern sustainable and efficient farming techniques that would allow them to maximize the potential of their land. The project aims to utilise the expertise of German agricultural machinery and crop protection producers Claas, Lemken, BASF and KWS to advise farmers on more efficient and effective land usage thereby increasing competitiveness of the region's agricultural sector.
