The questions of agritechnologies and the peculiarities of cucumber and other crop supply to Myrgorod cannery were of the greatest interest. The producers were also interested in the AMP information system and possibility to use its products. The village is remote from the main sales markets, and the reception of this information on-site is very important, to the opinion of the participants; it let them save time and operate with the trustworthy price situation on the vegetable markets in the country.
Following the results of the seminar, four producers wished to produce cucumber for the cannery, many producers were also ready to start this activity in terms of the commodity crediting from the side of the processor.
