The villagers of the Samara region now have a hot time — at the zenith of the battle for the harvest. According to the latest data, more than 1.6 million tons of grain were harvested from Samara fields. How the harvest is going was discussed at a meeting with Governor of the Samara Region Dmitry Azarov.
Grain to grain
According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of the Samara Region, in 430,000 hectares of wheat have already been harvested in the region. As noted by Minister Nikolai Abashin, the average yield is more than 38 centners per hectare, and in a number of farms the harvest of winter crops — up to 90 centners! It is not surprising, since winter crops are one and a half times more productive than spring crops and have long established themselves as the basis for a stable harvest and food security.
By the way, among the municipal districts there are champions from the Koshkinsky and Bolshegluchitsky districts. Local farmers shipped more than one hundred thousand tons to granaries.

Secondly, the harvest is of high grain quality. This is the result of precise and professional application of agricultural methods and competent and timely fertilization.
