Achievements of the Association

During the period of activity of the Association of producers and processors of soya from 2004 to 2015 it is worth emphasizing those achievements that were successful for members of the association and the state of Ukraine in this period:

1. Ukrainian market of soya and soya products annually grows on 8-11% minimumwith turnover of more than 2 billion dollars.

2. For the period of activity of association were created production facilities for soybean processing. In particular, in 2015 soya was processed by 8 oil-extraction plants, and more than 80 oil-pressing enterprises with total capacity about 3.8 mln tons. 11 enterprises are in process of construction and reconstruction.

3. One of remarkable achievements is introduction of mandatory pre-inoculated seed, that contributed to a significant increase of soya yields. Thus, for example, in 2003 the yield was 12.2 c/ha, and from 2011 to 2015 averaged in the range of 20 kg / ha. Accordingly, gross harvest of soybeans increased from 232 th.tons in 2003 to 3.917.7 th.tons in 2015.

4. The Association effectively influenced the export and import operations. In particular, if in 2003 were sold abroad 42,4 th tons of soya into 11 world countries for $10 mln, to 2,2 mln tons for $806,8 mln in 37 world countries in 2015.

Thus, today Ukraine practically doesn’t import soya and products of its processing. Totally for the period since 2003 till 2015 soybean export increased in 52 times, soya oil – in 39, soybean meal – in 1568 times. As a result, Ukraine takes the first place in Europe and eights in the world on soya production.

5. The current rates of production, processing and export of soya demonstrate responsible and professional attitude in Ukraine to these issues, as evidenced by the development of the sector program "Production and efficient use of soya and processed products in Ukraine for 2015-2020 years". In base of program are the innovative approaches to increase the yield of seeds and transformation towards increasing of soya acreage as a way to strengthen the economy, increase productivity of livestock, fish farming through the use of soya in feed production.

6. A special factor is an extension of acreage and the development of effective technologies of organic soya production. Significant developments during the past three years have allowed Ukraine to take the leading position in the field of organic farming, and the Association of producers and processors of soya became a member of the international organization "Danube soy", that indicates international recognition and opens up additional prospects for improvement activities.
