About 100 thousand tons of straw should prepare compost production in Ukraine for their needs. Collect the majority of straw compost yards and the beginning of this week.
This year, the straw was a success, they say collectors. Particularly strongly felt the difference from last year in eastern and southern regions, where the amount of straw, which can be collected from 1 hectare increased by 2-3 times. In the northern and western regions of Ukraine also noted good straw harvest. In the Kiev region today gather 2-3 tons of straw per hectare.
Straw Cost is one of the main components of the cost of the compost, so the compost yards pay much attention to the efficiency of straw collection. The main part of the cost, which costs the straw companies is the cost of collection and delivery, while the price at which buying straw on the field is not so important. Today, the collection of straw and logistics companies tend to cost between 180 and 400 USD / ton, and the price at which to buy the straw from farmers ranging from free up to 100 UAH / tonne.
The benefits from a situation are those compost yards, raw material base in which is located nearby. Also of considerable importance is the collection of equipment, baling, loading and unloading speed. In Ukraine, you can meet the full range of collection and transport of straw – from buying in bulk and transport stacks, to the most modern press-pickers, forklifts and tightly packed bales, and, as a result of efficient logistics.
