On August 23, during a working trip to Krutikhinsky district, the head of the region got acquainted with the farm of Ilkhan Kuvandikov, who is engaged in the production of potatoes and vegetables, reports Svetich news agency with reference to the regional ministry of agriculture.
As the farmer said, this year potatoes were planted on 320 hectares; in recent years, the farmer has relied on carrots from vegetables. This year it covers over 40 hectares. “In the coming days, we will begin to conduct a trial digging of potatoes, and then we will enter the mass harvest. The most productive on our lands are mid-season potato varieties. As the cleaning proceeds, we will carry out the implementation. We ship mainly potatoes to the northern regions of the country. In particular, significant volumes go to Yakutia, ”the farmer explained.
The farm has a full range of equipment required for the cultivation of potatoes and vegetables. Over the past three years, the farmer has carried out a deep reconstruction and modernization of several storage facilities designed to accommodate 6000 tons of potatoes and vegetables. There are plans to reconstruct another object in the mid-term. In addition, a sorting line has been installed. “We focus on Dutch technology, and use its elements, which allows us to increase yields,” said Ilkhan Kuvandikov.
The head of the region also met with a collective farm, discussed issues of wages, social development of rural areas, as well as gathering students for the upcoming new school year and providing support from large families to large families to prepare children for school.
