AGRA Chválkovice is an agricultural firm that manages an area of 650 hectares of arable soil. About 60 hectares are covered with permanent grassland that the firm uses to produce hay. AGRA Chválkovice only engages in plant production, focusing on winter rapeseed, wheat, spring barley, maize, sugar beet and soya.
“Most of our fields are brown soil types. To cultivate soil in our conditions, we use the time-tested method with a plough, when the field is then rolled over to avoid moisture evaporation and prepared with a cultivator. In the good years, we achieve an average yield of 7.8 t/ha of wheat, 4.2 t/ha of rapeseed and 85 t/ha of beets,” Lukáš Dosoudil, the agronomist, adds.
