Hope that the harvest in the Kuban will not be lower than last year, the Governor Veniamin Kondratyev pins. About this with reference to the first person in the region reports TASS.
And this is contrary to the fact that the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation already predicts a decrease in the yield of grain, potatoes and sugar beets due to prolonged rains.
- Despite the fact that the weather at the beginning of summer brought us many surprises in the form of precipitation and cold, the Kuban farmers worked in good faith. In 17 municipalities, threshing of winter barley has already begun.
It is too early to make forecasts, but we hope that this year we will get a harvest of agricultural crops no less than last year, ”said Kondratyev. Harvesting is already underway on 1,5 million hectares. There are all the prerequisites for the completion of this process in due time.
