On August 29, during a visit to the Nizhnelomovsky District, Ivan Belozertsev visited one of the largest potato farms in the region, Penzasemkartofel LLC.
This year, 80 hectares of potato crops were planted here.
According to the head of the farm, Yuri Bogomolov, the task of the enterprise is to obtain seed rather than ware potatoes.
He noted that their seed tubers are of the highest quality. The company supplies crops to many farms of the region and other regions.
However, there are still many who continue to purchase imported seeds, hoping for a good harvest. According to our governor, this is not worth it.
Ivan Belozertsev noted that it is necessary to use potatoes adapted to our conditions. He also advised to develop contacts between potato growers of the region and to share experience with each other as much as possible.
