Model farm to be established in Ukraine to sell N.D. farm suppliesIt used to take Alex Oronov 24 hours of flight time to shop for North Dakota farm machinery. Now, it takes him less than an hour. Oronov is head of a Ukrainian agribusiness that is operating a “model farm” that serves as a dealer location for North Dakota farm equipment, supplies and expertise. The farm is 50 miles southeast of Kiev, the capital, on farmland that is similar to the fertile Red River Valley of North Dakota and Minnesota.
