As the correspondent of IA “Kazakh-Zerno” was informed in the regional agricultural department, agricultural enterprises in the area of Shalakyn announced about the end of the grain harvest in early October.
In the overall gross yield regional growers threshed 245 thousand tons of new grain from 198.3 thousand hectares, which this year is considered by farmers as a great success, because the drought spared few people. The average yield in the local fields fixed at 12.4 q/ ha.
Farmers only have to complete the harvest of oilseeds. About 1 thousand hectares of oilseeds are still standing in the fields. Gloomy weather did not give the possibility for rape to mature, and this is a problem of the whole region, explained in the department.
