UFA, 22 March 2019. /Bashinform News Agency/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
In Bashkiria, agrarians discussed a strategy of the sowing campaign in the Pre-Ural steppe zone. The first zonal conference was held in the Fedorovka district. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, the snow will disappear in the fields already in the third decade of March, so sowing will also be early. The density of snow this year is small, and the soil freezing is average — 62 — 105 cm.
11.2 billion rubles will be required to conduct spring fieldworks in the republic this year (+ 18% by 2018). The increase in the cost of spare parts for the repair of agricultural machinery, fuel and lubricants, and mineral fertilizers contributed to the rise in costs.
State support from the federal and republican budgets will amount to 5.2 billion rubles. Also, revenues from sales of manufactured products, advances from processing enterprises and borrowed funds will constitute financing sources.
