This measure, according to the Head of the Republic of Dagestan, Vladimir Vasiliev, will mitigate the problems with irrigation caused by decreasing rainfall.
“In the south of the republic, the amount of precipitation decreases with climate warming, and this leads to an aggravation of the situation with the availability of irrigation water. Therefore, last year we allocated, as never before, 500 million rubles for land reclamation, but this is not enough, since problems have been accumulating in this area for decades. This year we have planned an additional 300 million rubles, ”said Vladimir Vasiliev at a meeting with reporters.
It should be noted that the indicated funds are planned to be directed mainly to the modernization of on-farm reclamation networks. In particular, farmers will prepare and defend their land reclamation projects, which, if approved, will be financed from the regional budget.
Recall that in 2019 in Dagestan, the reclamation network on an area of 17 thousand hectares was restored and reconstructed on a modern technological basis, which made it possible to obtain additional agricultural output worth more than 1 billion rubles.
