At the request of Gnidava Sugar Refinery, Volyn Branch of National Scientific Center «Institute for Soil Science and Agrochemistry Research of Ukraine» has developed methodical recommendations for the use of molasses residues in crop production of agricultural enterprises.

It is reported by the press service of Gnidava Sugar Refinery.
