Stefan Dürr, CEO of Ekosem-Agrar, explains that his company has come through the current year very well so far: “This year’s harvest was also good overall. The Voronezh region experienced challenging weather conditions with a cool and humid spring and an extremely hot and dry summer, so that the summer crops brought in good yields, but the crops that were harvested later suffered from the drought in the summer. In return, we posted significantly higher yields in our other regions, especially in Siberia. “
