The Ministry of Agriculture and Food of Belarus expects that the harvest of agricultural crops this year will be higher than last year. Such information is posted on the website of this department.
Analysis of the emerging objective factors of crop formation / optimization of sown areas, fertilization, compliance with plant growing technology, weather and climatic conditions / allows us to hope for a more significant harvest than in 2019. In the public sector, it is planned to receive at least 8,2 million tons of cereals and legumes, almost 5 million tons of sugar beets, 1,1 million tons of potatoes, about 620 thousand tons of rapeseed, 50 thousand tons of flax fiber, 600 thousand tons of vegetables, 170 thousand tons of fruits and berries. The task has been set to procure 9,3 million tons of feed units of grass feed.
In Belarus, along with the active procurement of grass fodder, preparations for the harvesting campaign are being completed, and a set of additional organizational and technological measures is being implemented. For harvesting grain and leguminous crops, 8,5 combines, more than 2 grain-cleaning and drying complexes and other equipment are used that will allow you to harvest and preserve the harvested crop. The working process will be provided by more than 24 thousand machine operators and 12 thousand combine operators.
This year Belarus will have an unprecedented harvest. On July 27, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, during a working trip to the Nesvizh region, noted that this year, taking into account corn, the grain harvest should amount to at least 9,5 million tons.
