So, from now on students of one of the most prestigious agrarian universities in Ukraine will be able to practice on the modern equipment, learn its specifics and, as a result, be competitive on the labor market.

As Director of “Agro L V Limited” Andrea Bianco pointed out: “We believe that this equipment will be a great facilitator for students in learning modern technologies of growing crops. Lots of students from Lviv Agrarian University undertake their internship in our company. They have good theoretical knowledge, but sometimes they lack practical skills, especially when dealing with modern equipment. That is why we decided to support education in technical area”.Investing into Local Agrarian Education: Dublyany-Lviv Agrarian University received modern farming equipment

We would like to emphasize that almost 60 graduates of Lviv Agrarian University are employees of our company. Furthermore, 9 employees of “Agro L V Limited” are gaining higher vocational education in this University.

The idea of investment in the educational sphere was supported by a founder and CEO of the company Mark Laird. He is sure that people are the main asset of the company: “We understand that qualified employees make business move forward, and just equipment without them is practically worthless. That is the reason why we invest in intelligence and create proper conditions for development and learning of the specialists”.
