For the spring sowings, machinery fleet of Allac Ltd., RAD farm located in the Kamensky district of the Altay Territory, was increased with two sowing complexes. With these aggregates from US-Canadian manufacturers Morris and Salford, RAD envisages to further improve quality of sowing operations by the enterprise - achieving better control over seeding rates and depth of seed placement.

RAD is a daughter company of major Russian grain processor PAVA, established to consolidate the company's agricultural enterprises, increase land bank and conduct large-scale farming operations. It presently controls over 160,000 ha of land in different regions of Russia.
