– Annually (since 2004) held a series of measures to implement the latest technologies of soya production, information on directions for using processed products, the economic feasibility of culture production. In particular, seminars, workshops, scientific and practical meetings, "Days of field" demonstrations of experimental crops, seeds, fertilizers, plant protection equipment for agricultural works and soya processing. These activities take place directly in the regions, districts, farms, involving managers and agronomists of the agricultural departments of district administrations, farms, farmers.
Thus, for example, in 2012 Association for the participation of Institute of feed and agriculture of Podillya NAAS, the agricultural departments of regional administrations has begun in February and ended in April Allukrainian master class in form of full training. Took place 91 interdistrict seminar on topic "Organization of production of soya" where were trained 6233 specialists. For the same period were held 7 interregional training seminars with 500 specialists. In 2013 were held 86 interregional seminar on topic "Soya and fodder" with 6000 professionals in 2014 - 14 interregional trainings on "Technological aspects of soybean products for feeding livestock and poultry", in 2015 - 7 interregional trainings «Prospects of soya production in Ukraine. Seeding and technology. Features of using soya processed products for livestock and poultry. "
Participants were acquainted with technology of soybean production in rained and irrigated areas and the process of soya growing of ultra-early and early ripening varieties with row spacing of 15 cm using new technology, that is how to grow soybeans on the basis of an effective system to ensure the optimal combination of these technological components: high-quality high-protein seeds, technical support, fertilizers and pesticides, that is the most effective implementation adapted to the climatic conditions of the regions technology.
These works contributed to the dynamics of constant growth of acreage and growth of soybean production from 189.6 th.ha and 231.9 th.tons in 2003 till 1038.0 th.ha and 1671 th.tons in 2010, and in 2014 till 1793.0 th.ha of sown areas and till 3882 th.tons of produced soya. Previous year was received 3917.7 th.tons on area 2122.6 th.ha. Thus, the task on production soya for 2015 were completed in 2010 (harvested 1.04 mln tons on area 1672.0 th.ha). Ukraine took the first place among European countries and CIS on soya production, and in 2014 on the 8th place among 91 world countries, which produce soya.
Along with increase of soya production took place the increase of soya producing entities, number of registered varieties, soya processing enterprises, capacities of soya processing;
