Unfavourable weather conditions in 2016 and the fact that Company is operating in the second transitional year for the full organic farming certification resulted in reduction of crop growing activity gross profit. During second transitional year Company meets all the criteria and requirements of the organic farming and this affects lower volumes of production in comparison with conventional farming, but production is still not certified as fully organic and production market prices are lower than organic production. The gross profit of the mushroom growing activity and compost production remained almost unchanged.
