Brest region takes lead in harvesting campaign 2017

Belarus’ harvest of 2017 is rapidly growing.

The total grain yield is close to two million tons. People and the machinery are in the fields during the whole light day. This agrarian marathon has its leader. The Brest region is in the lead - more than 600 thousand tons have been harvested. The second and the third place are taken by the Gomel and Minsk Regions – more than 400 and 300 thousand tons.

The northern regions of Belarus are essentially left behind. However, there are objective reasons for it. Due to the bad weather conditions of summer 2017, agrarians of the northern regions began the harvesting campaign later than usual. In average, 44 hundred kilograms per hectare are harvested there. All in all, one fifth of the fields in Belarus have already been processed.
