Grain harvest in Akmola region is 4 times less than last year
According to information from the Ministry of Agriculture, as of September 10, 701.500 t of grain were harvested in the Akmola region, and the average yield for the indicated period was 9.6 c/ha. This indicator is inferior to the indicator of the past year by 2.100.000 t. Last season, as of the same date, 2.800.000 t of grain were threshed.
At the same time, the average yield this year, exceeds last year’s by 0.5 c/ha.
It should be noted that the largest area for grain is allocated specifically in the Akmola region.
This year, 4.7 million hectares were allocated for spring sowing in the region, while 4.3 million hectares were for cereals. The main crop of this region is spring wheat. 3.7 million hectares were allocated for this crop.
It should also be recalled that last year the harvest of grain crops in the Akmola region amounted to 5.124 million tons.
The grain harvest in Akmola region has decreased by 4 times compared to last year. The reason for this was unfavorable weather conditions, including drought and heat. Despite the fact that farmers used modern technologies and high-quality seeds, the grain harvest significantly decreased. This can lead to an increase in product prices and a decrease in income for agricultural producers. In addition, the reduction in grain harvest can have a negative impact on the economy of the region as a whole, as agriculture is one of the most important industries. However, experts note that the reduction in grain harvest can be compensated by increasing the production of other types of agricultural products, such as vegetables and fruits.
