In 2019, Garantia-2 LLC was included in the register of seed farms. On its well-groomed land, vegetable growers plant 450 hectares of varietal potatoes.
Potatoes, carrots, beets, cabbage - the main crops grown on the Baikal land. Compared to 2018, the cultivated area was increased by 155 g, including by 15 ha for cabbage, by 10 ha for beets and 130 ha for potatoes.
The senior agronomist Garantiya-2, Ivan Kuznetsov, says the following: “The taste is excellent, especially the variety is good for frying and baking, so it is in great demand among gardeners. Planting rate - 54 thousand tubers per hectare. We will lay the seed plots. "
This year, a team of agronomists has been strengthened at the farm. Personnel do not hesitate to lure from other regions. So, Ivan Kuznetsov and his family moved to Buryatia from the Irkutsk region. Now the senior agronomist hopes to get into the program "Sustainable Development of Rural Areas" and build his own house in the Kabansky district. After all, it is here that Garantiya-2 will deal with the seed business, since in 2019 farmers entered the unified register of seed farms and received a certificate of conformity. Now, on the territory of the former Bin-Agro farm, 45 hectares of seed potatoes will be laid. The first batch of Rosar's elite planting stock has already entered the economy. By propagating and replanting potato seeds of higher reproductions from one field to another, in two years the republic’s farmers will receive the highest quality planting material.
High-quality seeds are only part of the success, irrigation systems provide a rich harvest on the farm. One of the largest at 800 meters for both potatoes and carrots, beets and cabbage. An obvious plus is that land reclamation is currently subsidized by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Belarus in the amount of 50%. Having received the status of a seed farm, Garantia-2 LLC can apply for additional state support measures, including compensation for 30% of the purchase of mineral fertilizers and chemical plant protection products. So far, some of the seeds have to be purchased from Tyumen, but farmers are confident that in two years they will be able to fully provide their own varietal seeds.
For the future harvest of vegetables, storage facilities have been prepared in accordance with accepted standards. Storage methods worked out, high safety, quality of vegetables by spring remains unchanged. Deputy Prime Minister for agribusiness D.-J. During a working visit, Sh. Chiripov noted that the Baikal and Kaban regions should become new points of economic growth for Buryatia. Today it is possible to attract additional funds for the development of villages and small towns within the framework of the National Program for the Development of the Far East. Promising is the production of products that would cover the republic’s need for vegetables.
