According to the Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Belarus, Daba-Zhalsan Chiripov, today in the republic crop production accounts for just over 30% of the total agricultural output.

As the head of the republic noted, the agriculture of Buryatia today has come out of a protracted peak, the situation is improving, but there are still many questions: we need high-quality breeding work so that we have elite seeds, and the issue of land reclamation, and training, and the issue of providing technique - a whole range of issues that need to be addressed.
“Within the framework of the meeting, a set of measures is being developed, which will subsequently be implemented, and we are confident that we will have an increase in efficiency in agriculture as a whole,” the head of Buryatia noted.
He also commented on the volume of support for the agricultural sector of the republic. Today, subsidized acquisition of equipment, land reclamation costs, subsidized cultivation of arable land.
- There are a lot of support measures. But the question of effective use, according to some measures, part of the money is still not claimed. It is clear that the season is just beginning. We will look at the most effective areas within the framework of the meeting, maybe redistribute the articles if we understand that there are more priority areas, ”Tsydenov emphasized.
