Brest region leading in Belarus' harvesting campaign 2017

Belarusian farmers have already cropped more than 3 million tons of grain. In total, more than a third of the "gold reserve" was cropped. Leading in the harvesting campaign is the Brest region. Here, the total amount of grain cropped is nearly 1 million tons.

The mark of 500,000 tons has already been overcome by the Minsk, Gomel and Grodno regions. Each of these regions plans to crop not less than a ton of grain. By the way, the pace of cropping here allows meeting the deadlines set.

Dry weather helps the Vitebsk and Mogilev regions, which joined in the harvesting later, to make up for lost time.

Belarusian farmers have slightly less than 2 weeks to crop the remaining harvest. The Belarus President has recently instructed all farms to end the harvesting by August 20.
