author: Galya Nabieva

Farmings of 26 Bashkir regions started grain harvest today but it doesn’t make the agrarians happy because of unusually dry weather. Nonetheless the grain growers intend to cut all crops i  time, maximally reducing the losses of this so poor harvest.

According to the information of the Ministry of agriculture RB grain and leguminous cultures are mowed down on 37 thousand hectares for today and it means 30% of the plan. The thrashing is done on 26 thousand hectares and the overall milling in the Republic made up 23 thousand tons. The average crop capacity at present moment is equal to 8,9 centners from one hectare.
