In the North-Kazakhstan region, work is required to preserve the moisture in the fields
The akim of the North-Kazakhstan region held a meeting with the heads of the districts about the readiness for the spring field work.
According to the head of the region, until May 15 (the start of the planting season), farmers must actively prepare to the field works which involves inspecting and repairing the machine and tractor fleet, and the possible renewal of agricultural machinery. He also stressed that soon the issue of lowering the interest rate for the purchase of new equipment from 14.5% to 6-7% will be brought up for discussion.
However, that’s not all. Considering the fact that this winter there was very little precipitation, namely 69%, while the average figure is 80-100 mm. In order not to lose this moisture in the soil, one should immediately apply the procedures for maintaining moisture in the soil.
In addition, it is necessary to remember seed dressing, because the deterioration of yields is affected not only by insufficient moisture, but also by weeds and diseases.
