Despite the fact that last summer a state of emergency was declared in the republic due to soil drought, the farmers of Chuvashia managed to collect 142,5 thousand tons of potatoes with a yield of 185,1 c / ha.
The highest productivity (over 20 thousand tons) was achieved in the Kozlovsky, Batyrevsky and Komsomolsky districts. In total, the three districts account for almost 45% of all potatoes collected from agricultural organizations and peasant farms.
In terms of potato production, Chuvashia is in third place in the Volga Federal District, yielding to the Nizhny Novgorod Region and the Republic of Tatarstan.
