In the mountainous village of Verkhny Zgid, Alagir district, farmers are growing more than twenty varieties of potatoes.
As it became known on 15-news.ru, not a single pest can get into mountain nurseries, therefore excellent prospects open up for farmers. Potatoes are growing good. Experts believe that the republic may in the future become the main supplier of potato seeds in the North Caucasus.
Potatoes are grown in special nurseries at an altitude of 2500 meters. The FAT-Agro enterprise is engaged in this. Agrarians supply quality seeds to thirty Russian regions and the number of partners is increasing annually.
