History

Back in 1991, our company appeared on the agrarian map of Cherkasy oblast and opened at that time yet unknown European page in the history of seed breeding in Central Ukraine. The Company became a game-changing agroindustrial manufacturer. MAIS became of a missionary and pioneer in this field.

We have had an ambitious goal – to provide high quality seeds to agricultural producers. For this purpose in 1992 on the territory of Cherkasy oblast, our first modern seed processing facility was built and equipped with machines delivered from the USA. Adopting the best domestic and foreign practices of seed breeding, MAIS, step by step, has been not only increasing seed production but also persistently promoting the latest achievements of scientists and plant breeders among agrarians.
