Tatarstan names leaders in harvesting

In Tatarstan, all regions of the republic have started harvesting grain crops — 425 thousand hectares, or 28% of the plan, have been threshed, the threshing amounted to 1,6 million tonnes with an average yield of 39 c/ha, First Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Republic of Tatarstan Nail Zalakov said at a meeting at the Government House of the Republic of Tatarstan.

He named the areas that have shown good productivity in harvesting.

In the Volga Region, the leader was traditionally the Tetyushsky district, which threshed 43% of grain. In the republic, the district showed the highest yield (55 kg/ha) and the highest milling — over 109 thousand tonnes. The Verkhneuslonsky district shows low rates, it has the lowest yield index — 29 c/ha.

In the Western Zakamye, the Aksubayevsky, Novosheshminsky and Nurlatsky districts are the leaders. They harvested more than 40% of the grain areas with milling in the districts of 68,87 and 64 thousand tonnes, respectively. The Spassky and Alkeevsky districts, on the contrary, need to increase the pace of harvesting.
