Snow has fallen, the earth will warm up soon and sowing will begin. In Yamal, they are preparing for planting potatoes and other vegetables. About 50 hectares of land have been allocated this year to grow one of the most consumed food products. Tuberous plants will be planted at the enterprises of Salekhard, Krasnoselkupsky and Shuryshkarsky districts.
Last year, Yamal farmers harvested 430 tons of potatoes, which is 40 percent more than in 2015. In total, taking into account households in the district, 1 tons of potatoes were harvested. The harvest of other vegetables amounted to 300 tons.
Recall cabbage, onions, carrots are grown in the Krasnoselkup region. As for the seeds, the need for agricultural enterprises in them is about 120 tons. Traditionally, varieties such as gala, rosary, bellarose, scarlett, which have worked well in the North, are planted in the fields.
“Seed material is purchased at seed production farms in the Tosca region. The river has just cleared of ice and as far as we know the goods should be on the way, we look forward to it, ” - says Anna Sokolova, spokeswoman for the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Food of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
It should be noted that the okrug can support agricultural producers as much as it can. Through subsidies, farmers receive reimbursement for the production of potatoes and vegetables. This year, more than 10 million rubles are envisaged in the budget to support crop production.
