Ukrainians Study Kansas Farmers

SALINA, KS -- Officials from Ukraine are visiting the United States as they seek to improve their farming methods.

Yesterday, the former speaker of the parliament in Ukraine and two other men from the county visited Great Plains Manufacturing in Salina.

The company exports its equipment to Ukraine, as well as other parts of the world.

Ukraine used to import more equipment from Europe. But much of the European equipment is better suited for small farmers.

The group from Ukraine has been in the United States for about a week to check out what is new in agricultural equipment.

Like Kansas, the primary crop produced in Ukraine is wheat.
