Potato harvesting is in full swing in Dagestan. So, only in the Kumtorkalinsky region they collect an unprecedented harvest. As farmers themselves admit, they managed to grow such a quantity of potatoes using the latest irrigation system used by farmers. The final touch is to collect a rich harvest, here agricultural machinery comes to the aid of farmers.
Harvesting from an area of more than 60 hectares is usually a painstaking business. But not in this case. First, there is an automated cutting of the tops.
Well, then the tractor digs out all the tubers, the workers can only collect the potatoes in bags. An unprecedented yield of 230 centners per hectare is a reward for good work.
Colombo, Red Scarlet, Nevsky, Zhukovsky varieties are quite fruitful. But the main reason for the high performance is this sprinkler installation.
For the first time in the republic, a system was launched at a peasant farm in Uchkent circular irrigation... Such equipment has long been used abroad, allowing more efficient irrigation and fertilization of crops. The machine can draw water from a hydrant or an open channel. Watering is carried out through specially designed spray nozzles, which guarantee an even distribution of water over the entire area.
This installation cost the investor 7 million rubles. Working on the principle of a compass, it has time to water the entire field in 8 hours.
It should be noted that without irrigation it is almost impossible to cultivate most crops in Dagestan.
75% of the arable land of the republic is placed in extremely arid conditions. In this situation, the use of such installations will give a significant boost in many sectors of agriculture.
In the meantime, in the Kumtorkala region, after harvesting potatoes, they will begin to collect carrots, which will soon go to the markets and shopping centers of Dagestan and other regions of Russia.
