Hungary donates seeds to Transcarpathia farmers

Hungarian producers and agricultural companies have donated 500 bags of seeds to ethnic Hungarian farmers in western Ukraine's Transcarpathia region, the National Agriculture Chamber (NAK) said on Wednesday.

The donation was delivered to representatives of the Reformed Church of Transcarpathia and the Association of Transcarpathian Young Hungarian Entrepreneurs in Berehove (Beregszasz) by Istvan Jakab, head of farmers’ association Magosz, and NAK head Balazs Gyorffy.

The food to be produced from the crops will be donated to those affected by the war, orphanages and retirement homes.

Of the 500 bags delivered, 80 were donated by attendees at the Veszprem County farmers’ ball and 420 by the Hungarian-owned Marton Genetics group, NAK said.
