In the Issyk-Kul region, an initiative has been raised to create an association of potato producers. This was stated at a meeting with the population of Ak-Suuy district by the government plenipotentiary in Issyk-Kul region Akylbek Sauerland.
According to information, large volumes of potatoes are grown by residents of Ak-Suuisky, Zheti-Oguz and Tyup districts. Last year, the price of potatoes is low, therefore, it was initiated to create an association of potato producers. The association will deal with the problems of farmers growing this crop.
“Creation of such an association to exchange experience and solve emerging problems is a requirement of the time. Increasing demand and improving sales also depends on the villagers. By improving quality, we can export. So, in the Ton district, potatoes are sown for export to Russia. To resolve such issues it is necessary to create an association, ”Osmonaliev said.
Issykkul farmers last year sold potatoes at 5-6 soms per kilogram. A similar picture was in 2004-2005.
