0 12

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), with the financial support of the Governments of Japan and Norway, is implementing a programme to support small farmers during the autumn sowing campaign 2023. The call for applications is open through the State Agrarian Registry (SAR) until 20 July 2023, as SEEDS writes.

The programme is implemented in nine of most war-affected oblasts of Ukraine, namely in Sumska, Chernihivska, Donetska, Kharkivska, Dnipropetrovska, Zaporizka, Mykolaivska, Khersonska and Odeska oblasts. Within the programme, each eligible beneficiary will receive 2 tonnes of winter crop seeds, sufficient to sow 10 hectares of land. The applicants may select one of two winter crops: wheat or barley.

Only individual entrepreneurs and individuals who operate in the abovementioned oblasts and own or rent agricultural land ranging from 5 to 100 hectares can participate in the programme.

Please note that application to this scheme is contingent on the timely availability of funds from partners and seeds from local suppliers. Application for this scheme does not guarantee that the assistance will be provided.

The closing date for applications is 20 July 2023.
