Crimea to review the structure of the agricultural crops planted areas
In 2014, the Crimean producers of agricultural commodities are taking measures on reviewing the structure of the agricultural crops' planted areas. The stated work is focused on the maintenance of the operational indicators in the plant sector.
The Government plans to replace the moisture-dependent crops for drought-resistant (for example, sorgo, panicum and sunflower). It is possible to increase the safflower planting share and introduce the amarantus in the fodder crop rotation, and also to expand the sainfoin areas.
Remind, that as of May 6, 2014 there is the minimum water supply through the North-Crimean channel. Crimea planed to grow rice throughout the areas of 13.5 thsd ha, maize – 8.9 thsd ha, soybean – 12.9 thsd ha by using the Dnieper water.
