During that time he played a role in developing agricultural exports, organizing cooperatives and unions, raising the quality of farm produce, and enabling modern farming techniques. The Ginkunai estate was taken over by German and Russian military at various times. Translated from Lithuanian by Ruta Pempe Sevo with Vytautas Fledzinskas and Sophie Pempe.
