From the tank farms only 40 thousand tons or 57% were chosen. Weak picking rates in the city of Arkalyk -33%, Naurzum district 43%, Amangeldy district -43%, Karabalyk -47%, Taran district -48%. That is, seven named districts need to speed up the picking. Tomorrow you will not have time, the price will rise”. Among the instructions is also to speed up the export of seeds to air-heat heating and to ensure seed dressing in full, which is about 550 thousand tons. “It is necessary from May 15 to begin mass sowing of grain crops and complete it, the deadline is July 3. It is also necessary to allocate the structure of crop areas, especially for sowing oil-bearing and forage crops, potatoes and confirm statistical reporting in the form of agriculture. Without this form, no one will be accepted. And the last thing is to carry out timely measures to combat locust pests, ensure the development of financial resources from the republican and local budgets”, Archimed Mukhambetov concluded.
