UHDP Most Significant Change Stories (Ukraine)

The Ukraine Horticulture Development Project (UHDP) assists farmers to adopt modern technologies, increase productivity and deliver premium quality greenhouse crops, berries and table grapes to markets in which they have a competitive advantage.

In its final year of operation, UHDP has assisted over 6,587 direct farmers with more than 3,750 participating in six clustered geographic locations. The project uses market consolidation to encourage small farmers to work together to better reach valuable markets. In 2013, over 2,600 UHDP farmers generated 11 metric tons of greenhouse and horticulture crops worth $10.5 million, which they sold to national food retail chains and exported to Russia. About 40% of project clients are women. Agro Capital Management has conducted new farm equipment sales valued at $5 million sold to 737 small farmers, 36% of which are women.
