In the fields of the Kostroma region it remains to harvest 10% of the crop, the regional television "Rus" reports. The region is summing up the harvesting campaign.
Potatoes and vegetables were harvested 90 percent of the plan, 71 agricultural enterprises were involved in their harvesting. In the coming days, the last farm from the Pavinsky district will complete the harvest of grain.
Due to the fact that equipment was out of order at the two farms, the largest amount of vegetables remained to be removed in the Kostroma region. Due to the high soil moisture in the Susaninsky district, the equipment cannot enter the fields. Assistance to farms will be provided by local residents and machine operators from neighboring agricultural enterprises.
Kostroma farmers fulfilled the plan for the procurement of feed by 101,4%. According to the regional department of the agro-industrial complex, 255 thousand tons of silage and 65,5 thousand tons of hay, as well as 29 thousand tons of hay and grain silage were harvested.
