A record grain harvest has been harvested in Kuzbass — this has not happened for more than 50 years


This year, Kuzbass agricultural enterprises have collected and threshed 1.8 million tons of grain in barn weight. As Interfax reports with reference to the regional government, 1.5 million tons were collected here a year earlier.

Thus, this year the harvest has increased by more than 18 percent. "A similar harvest was harvested in the region only in 1966," the agency notes. The harvest of oilseeds amounted to 305.9 thousand tons." The Kuzbass government explains that it is mainly rapeseed, which was harvested 278.3 thousand tons, which is 90.2 thousand more than last year.

Also, producers, due to the increase in crops, managed to increase the volume of potatoes and vegetables grown. The yield was also affected by the amount of mineral fertilizers used during the season — they were used 1.3 times more than before.
