About 200 centners of root crops are obtained per hectare.
These are early varieties of root crops. At the harvest gathered the entire control apparatus of the farm. Sort potatoes and accountants, and economists, and deputy directors.
The Yuzhno-Sakhalinsky state farm was the first on the island to begin harvesting early potatoes. From one hectare about 200 centners of root crops are received here.
Potatoes of early varieties grow on the territory of more than 10 hectares. For a week, workers must harvest from this field, and then move on to the next. Now there is growing a variety of "Luck." And in just 7 days, the potato will gain the necessary mass.
The area of all fields with potatoes at the state farm is about 550 hectares. Most are planted with root crops of elite varieties - Laperla, Labella and Lily. Sakhalin residents have not tried them yet. They will appear on the shelves for the first time.
Vladimir Savchenko, Advisor to the Department of the Ministry of Agriculture:
- Under our program for the development of agriculture in the Sakhalin Oblast, we compensate for the purchase of elite potato seeds, the introduction of mineral fertilizers, limestone flour, and organic fertilizers.
This is one of the few enterprises that complies with growing technology. In the fields, treatment is carried out against weeds and fungi. Today, potatoes are harvested by hand. A little later, harvesters will also enter the fields. Harvesting will be carried out until the end of September.
Lyudmila Lyakh, deputy director of the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsky state farm:
- Now the first potato will go for 45 rubles. But this is our potato, and not from the mainland imported Chinese. Our potatoes are very good, so the first one will be at 45 rubles. In the future, the price will be less, because this is the first potato.
Sakhalin residents will be able to purchase young potatoes in all cities of the south of the island in the coming days. The company’s car shop also plans a trip to Poronaysk.
