From June 20 to 22, the second open-air exhibition for plant production “International Field Days Ukraine” took place in Doslidnytske, Kiev Region.

Visitors also had the opportunity to watch soil cultivation and harvesting machinery in action. The presentation of underground irrigation systems by companies such as Unifer was another highlight.
