Seaside farmers harvested more than 40 thousand tons of potatoes and 32 thousand tons of vegetables.
According to the Department of Agriculture and Food of Primorye, farmers are completing the harvesting of potatoes and vegetables. The plan is almost 90% complete.
“32,3 thousand tons of vegetables were collected from the fields, the yield amounted to 148 centners per hectare against 127 centners last year. Almost 41 thousand tons of potatoes were harvested, which is 20 thousand tons more than in 2016. Productivity is 161 centners per hectare, ”experts commented.
Recall that Russian President Vladimir Putin posed a large-scale task for the regions under the conditions of sanctions to saturate the domestic market with high-quality and affordable products, as well as enter the world. And in Primorye there are already visible results.
Note that over the past five years, gross agricultural production in Primorye has increased by 14%. The land today already almost completely meets the needs for potatoes and vegetables.
