The day before, specialists from the Department of Agriculture Makhach Aydemirov, Dalgat Murtazaliev and Magomed Rabadanov familiarized themselves with the process of potato harvesting, which is carried out by farms and tenants of the district.
So, when visiting tenants in the village of Kokrek, where more than 95% of the sown area of potatoes is concentrated in the private sector, USH specialists noted a rich harvest. At the moment, they managed to harvest potatoes in 85% of all areas. The average yield of an early potato variety from one hectare is more than 25 tons per hectare, about 1 ha have been dug since the beginning of harvesting. High productivity was promoted by the agrotechnical operations carried out in optimum terms: soil preparation, processing by chemicals from wreckers, weeding, watering, cultivation and elite seed material.
“Harvesting - harvesting is carried out using special equipment, and workers only collect potatoes scattered across the field in containers. To quickly cope and clean without loss of potato land, tenants entered into agreements with workers for harvesting from neighboring villages. In total, more than 200 people work on the field every day; on average, they earn about 1000 rubles every day. The harvest came out rich and we are now worried about the pricing policy for the grown products and the transportation of finished products. Products are sold in the retail chains of the district and beyond, ”said tenant Rasulbek Khamidov.
“In the region, special attention is paid to the production of potatoes, since our potatoes are deservedly popular not only among local residents, but also outside the republic, as an environmentally friendly product. Sown areas for potatoes in the area are gradually growing. Potatoes are harvested in an organized and coordinated manner in the area, and a mechanized method of harvesting is also used. Harvesting is carried out without damage to potato tubers, without loss and quality. Safety and labor protection when harvesting vegetables are respected, ”said leading specialist of the USH Magomed Rabadanov.
