Belarus preparing for sowing season 2018: energy-saturated equipment to be used?

About BYN 2 billion will be necessary for the 2018 sowing campaign. This was announced by the Ministry of Agriculture on March 26.

The main focus will be made on energy-saturated equipment in 2018. A tractor as this one substitutes two or even three machines of a medium class. What is more, such equipment will be working in two shifts, what will allow doing everything in time.

Vladimir Grakun, Agriculture and Food Deputy Minister of the Republic of Belarus:
Once the soil is ready, the sowing campaign will begin. It must end within 10 days. We have such a technical possibility. In 2018, we must sow 2.7 million hectares of land with summer crops.

Belarusian scientists are taking an active part in the campaign They have prepared over four thousand tons of original and elite seeds. Belarusian agrarians have a task to harvest 9 million tons of grain in 2018. The sowing campaign will begin when the snow melts from the fields and the soil warms up.
