The John Deere Corporation in association with EkoNiva-Chernozemye has gifted a John Deere 6095B tractor to Voronezh State Agricultural University named after Emperor Peter the Great (VSAU). The students and representatives of the university administration attended the important event.

‘Today, 85% of our company staff are VSAU graduates’, said Sergey Storozhev, Head of the Service Department of EkoNiva-Chernozemye. ‘It is no exaggeration to say that Voronezh Agricultural University is our alma mater as the founders of the company are also its former students. We are deeply grateful to the university for teaching generations of young people and helping them to become highly qualified specialists that the farming sector needs so much.’

‘We would like our students to learn the ins and outs of their profession getting familiar with the advanced agricultural machinery’, added Elena Lobova, Senior Territory After Sales Representative. ‘John Deere is the world's leading manufacturer in this field, and we are heartily glad to present VSAU with the branded tractor. We wish its students success in studying modern technologies and further fruitful work in agriculture for the good of the country!’

The John Deere 6095B is not the first machine gifted to the university by its partners. In 2015, the laboratory of the mechanical engineering department welcomed a John Deere 6530 tractor. According to Professor Vladimir Orobinskiy, Head of the Department of Agricultural Machinery, Tractors and Cars, more than 30 laboratory classes have been conducted with the help of this model.

EkoNiva wishes VSAU new scientific achievements and bright students.
