The agro-industrial holding AFG National received a record potato yield of 60 tons / ha this season in the Nizhny Novgorod Region.
It is noted that the average potato yield in the Russian industrial sector is 23 tons / ha, in the Nizhny Novgorod region - 27,3 tons / ha.
«It is important that the marketable appearance of potatoes is also at a height: the dimensions of the tubers correspond to the requirements of distribution networks. High yields and quality have been achieved through the use of irrigation. Since early potatoes are in good demand, they are usually not put into storage, but sold immediately - they are washed, packed and sent to retail chains“, - said the director of AFG National NN Valery Maslanov.
In the Nizhny Novgorod region, the company grows potatoes on an area of 4 thousand hectares. Land under cultivation is equipped with an irrigation system. Harvested tubers are sold in retail under the Vegetable League and Natural Selection brands.
