Agrarians of the Upper Volga region began spring work on the ground a week ahead of schedule.

At present, farmers have already transformed more than 850 hectares of arable land.
“Spring agricultural work punctuates the whole year. How we achieve them – such results will be achieved. One of the main tasks is to provide producers with full state support for the agro-industrial complex in a timely and timely manner, which will allow the campaign to be carried out in a timely manner, ”Governor Igor Rudenya believes.
The first to start work were the agricultural enterprises Novaya Zhizn from the Bezhetsky district, Conscience from the Zubtsovsky district, Svobodny Trud from the Kashinsky district, Ruchevskoye from the Konakovo district and Ecoagrofarming from the Staritsky district. If the weather continues to be favourable, several other farms will start sowing in the coming days.
In the region, an assessment of winter crops was carried out in advance – 99.5% of crops, located on an area of 24.1 thousand hectares, are in good condition.
