Since Habsburg times, the lowland plains of Romania have been an important part of the legendary ‘Granary of Europe’. Since 2007, the Agro Company now farms a surface area of 700 hectares in the western part of these lowlands, in the district of Oltenia.
Together, a clement climate, black soil rich in nutrients and the river Olt, provide ideal conditions for a fruitful investment. But 40 years of socialist planned economy have left deep traces - in the earth, means of production, infrastructure and in peoples’ minds. To increase the yield from year to year, we are investing in successive modern- isation of production facilities and the machine park, as well as in an ongoing knowledge-transfer.
As a responsible investment our commitment is long-term. The intention is to create a winwin situation for all, not least for the people who work every day in the fields of Stoicanesti.
