Crimea reduced rice planted areas
According to the polling realized by experts of APK-Inform Agency, agricultural producers of the Crimea reduced the planted areas under rice.
According to them, the complete absence of water supply and insufficient drip-irrigation systems during planting works of rice became the reason for development of the reporting situation. It is worth noting that a number of agrarians reported on their plans to completely deny from planting of the grain in future.
As a reminder, according to the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, in 2013 the Crimea harvested 81 thsd tonnes of rice throughout the areas of 13.5 thsd ha. The planted areas of rice for the harvest-2014 were planned to reach 14.1 thsd ha.
