Belarus. Agrarians overcome 2-million mark in grain yield


Mass harvesting is accelerating in Belarus. The yield now amounts to 2 190 000 tons of grain. The Brest region is still the leader. The region accounts for 685 thousand tons of grain. More than half of all areas have already been harvested.

The Gomel region has almost reached the half-million mark. The productivity has grown throughout the country and reached 35.2 centners per hectare.

The harvesting campaign in some agricultural organizations is lagging behind due to a number of reasons, which prompted the President to hold a conference call with all regions of the country. The conference call has revealed the main problem - the notorious human factor which has led to the lask of equipment and fuel in some organizations. The grain yield-2017 is expected in the amount of about 8 million tons.
