Abstract

Waste recycling is one of the priority directions of resource conservation in the agricultural sector. Modern innovations in the use of waste from fruit-and-vegetable production only partly contribute to resolving the contradictions between the growing needs of the population in high-quality food products and the limited production volumes of agricultural raw materials.

The scientific and practical results of the research are based on the monographic method used at the FG (Farm Enterprise) “Agroinnovatsiia” in Zastavniv district of the Chernivtsi region. The method concerns the innovative technology of preserving apple pomace in closed trenches using a natural sorbent, bentonite, and the replacement of a part of concentrates with the preserved apple pomace in feeding rations of pigs. The processing of empirical data by means of statistical and economic methods allowed substantiation of the reduction in the amount of fodder resources required per 1 hwt of gain by 2.2%, a 5.5% reduction in the cost price, and a profit increase by more than 2 times.
