The empty behavior, which is affected by various circumstances, some of which are unpredictable, such as the war in Ukraine, also has a significant impact on prices. Some cables have risen in price several times this year and the Chinese are planning to use them less.
For agribusiness, such potential behavior is very important: if farmers buy less, they will get less. This will have an impact on the performance of increasingly agribusiness companies. Can we change that in this situation? rhetoric asks the head of Agrochema. We can only communicate to farmers, help them calculate the amount of yield and their income if the use of plant protection products is reduced, and advise on how to use it in order to achieve an effective result.

E-business opportunities in the country are strengthening more slowly than in other businesses, the subtleties of agribusiness are revealed by A. Kuskyt.
