Today, Kostanay farmers held snow retention on 450 thousand hectares of their land. As reported to the correspondent of the IA “Kazakh-Zerno” in the local department of agriculture, it is 41% of the planned area.
In comparison with the previous year level of snow on the surface of farmland is much smaller. However, while maintaining all this moisture, there will be no need to worry about the adoption of seed during sowing.
In stubble fields of the region is observed an average of 23-30 mm of snow. On fall-plowed land there is 19-23 mm of snow. On complete fallow there is 18-22 mm of snow.
It should be noted that in early February last year, Kostanay farmers held snow retention on 1 million hectares of their land, which is 91 % of the planned areas.
