As a sponsor of Tech Hub LIVE, EarthDaily Agro had the opportunity to introduce attendees to a global charity working to provide humanitarian relief to Ukrainian farmers. is a charitable collective that includes leading agricultural companies such as Syngenta and Land O’Lakes designed to help the smaller farmers impacted by the ongoing conflict with Russia. “And we offer them seed inputs, crop protection, fuel, repair services for bombed out equipment, as well as a limited amount of cash,” said Andrew Mullin, Earth Daily Agro. “We’re collecting donations from farmers and from agribusinesses to go directly to the farmers in Ukraine, and 95 cents of every dollar collected goes directly to these small farmers.” Ukrainian farmers with up to 1,200 acres (500 hectares) located in regions impacted by war are eligible to receive aid.

Mullin facilitated meetings at Tech Hub LIVE with FARMERHOOD project manager Kateryna Konashchuk, who says these smaller farmers are enduring a second season now of uncertainty and struggle. “They have a lack of different resources and they would like to survive,” said Konashchuk. “They would like to stay on their land with their families because they do not know any other existence other than farming.”

Konashchuk says her husband, who is a civil engineer, is serving in the Ukrainian artillery despite having no experience in the military. “There is no other way to stand for your land and stand for your family,” she said.
