In Crimea, the total area of ​​grain and legumes to be harvested decreased by 4%

CrimeaPRESS reports:

Due to the lack of precipitation and productive moisture in the soil from February to May 2024, the total area of ​​grains and legumes to be harvested decreased by 4%. This was announced by the Acting Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Crimea Alime Zaredinova. Given the dry agroclimatic conditions of this year, the harvesting campaign will begin earlier than last year.

Alime Zaredinova also noted that in the Republic of Crimea, as of May 23, 2024, the actual sown area of ​​agricultural crops for the 2024 harvest is about 800 thousand hectares; under grain and leguminous crops, the sown area is more than 555 thousand hectares. Taking into account the unfavorable agroclimatic conditions in December 2023, as well as the lack of productive moisture in the arable layer on the territory of the Republic of Crimea during the period of mass sowing of winter crops for the 2024 harvest, the sown area under winter grains and leguminous crops decreased by 4% and amounted to about 467 thousand hectares .

Due to the lack of precipitation and productive moisture in the soil from February to May 2024, it is planned to write off about 7,800 hectares of agricultural crops in 9 regions of Crimea. Today, the situation with the death of crops is not critical. Considering that high atmospheric temperatures were observed in early spring of this year, the growing season of plants has changed significantly. In this regard, the harvesting campaign will begin earlier than last year.commented the acting minister.
