Despite the official announcement of the completion of cotton harvesting South Kazakhstan farmers still continue to harvest. As the correspondent of IA “Kazakh-Zerno” was informed in the regional agricultural department, as of today cotton growers exceeded the harvesting plan by 7%.
Weather conditions favor the continuation of the harvest and under such conditions cotton farmers do not plan to stop the harvesting campaign soon.
Today, the total yield of cotton is 382 thousand 942 tons. The fact of fulfillment of the harvesting plan suggests that drought spared culture and allowed farmers to grow reach crops.
We remind, local farmers have allocated for cotton approximately 148 thousand hectares of their lands. It is 6 thousand ha less compared to the last year.
