Russian Federation : In the Republic of Dagestan discussed the sowing campaign of winter cereals

Dec 06, 2018 (Euclid Infotech Ltd via COMTEX) --

The Deputy Chairman of the Government of Dagestan, the Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Republic, Abdulmuslim Abdulmuslimov, held a meeting on the sowing campaign of winter grain in the region.

More than 100 thousand hectares are allocated for grain crops in the republic annually, of which 77 thousand hectares for wheat, 20 thousand hectares for rice, 18 thousand hectares for corn and 25 thousand hectares for barley. Grain production is around 400 thousand tons of grain, but this year, due to the prolonged drought in the spring-summer period, we did not get about 40 thousand tons of winter crops. The deficit in the republic is compensated for by imports from neighboring regions specializing in the production of grain. Considering this situation, I propose that the heads of municipalities pay attention to an increase in the grain wedge, especially winter crops, the Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Republic of Dagestan stressed.

During the meeting, it was noted that the leadership of Dagestan is taking all necessary measures to assist agricultural producers of the republic. In recent years, rice growing has been developing at a good pace in the republic, the area under this crop has doubled to 19.5 thousand hectares. 86 thousand tons of white grain were collected. In the same year, we commissioned two rice processing plants in the Kizlyar District - JSC Kizlyarakrokompleks and SEC Risk. Next in line is another modern plant based on the advanced farm LLC Niva in Kizlyar district. All three plants can simultaneously process more than 150 tons in one shift. This will increase the tax revenue in the form of VAT. Previously, these funds went to other regions, since our rice was processed outside the republic, the minister stated. According to the results of the event, Abdulmuslim Abdulmuslimov pointed out to the heads of municipalities the need to take under their personal control the course of sowing of winter crops and the achievement of the planned indicators envisaged for the current year.
