CROP GROWING AND FEEDMILLING
Crop growing operations are fully integrated into Axzon’s business:
- Axzon requires a lot of feed and vast areas to dispose waste
- Pig manure is an effective organic fertilizer
In total, Axzon cultivates more than 30 thousand hectares of land annaully. We produce our own feed from the crops and we also use silage from our maize in our biogas production.
- In 2016 we harvested 27.526 hectares of land, divided in the categories in the diagram on the right
- The Group’s land bank consists of 12,7 thousand ha. in Poland, 11,3 thousand ha. in Ukraine and 4,1 thousand ha. in Russia, reaching more than 0,7 ha. pr. Sow full line.
- We use a modern, GPS-equipped machinery fleet to facilitate the crop growing
- We have 4 feed mills that fulfill the Group’s internal needs both in Poland, Ukraine and Russia
- We keep a constant internal control over feed mix, price and quality of inputs which provides a huge competitive edge in the pig production
