Penza farmers are alarmed lost harvest. For 5 weeks in all the major economies of harvesters are in place, and the potatoes rot in the ground. Before the first frost is necessary to remove another 13 tons of potatoes, otherwise it will be too late. According to calculations of farmers in early November technique will become a thing of the fields.
Dig potatoes in 2011 only managed to private traders. In large firms in the Penza region to collect the second bread still can not. All because of bad weather. Constant rainfall prevent equipment out in the field. However, farmers Shemysheyskogo area are optimistic.
In the village of Old Yaksarka for general cleaning of the crop has it all: the modern technology and mood in people who have long been "spoiling for a fight." However, in the Man Upstairs are not aware of, and increased soil moisture does not enter the newly acquired American combines. "These machines can dig even more humid conditions, but we just released two days ago an American who was with us the whole time. He said that in such circumstances, the machine can not work "- said General Director of" Sursky potatoes "Valery Adaev.
In mid-August it was too early to dig potatoes not yet ripe. By late summer, removed only 45 hectares of seed potatoes and laid deposited 1.5 thousand tons of table. Only 2 weeks of downtime — and more than half of the crop is left in the ground. Now in the field — the swamp and mud, for 5 weeks, new equipment is idle, and 50 hand-over day is not processed and 2 hectares. However, farmers are not in a hurry frustrated and no shortage of potatoes promise. "Those 30-35 tons of crops, which we predicted at the moment was not lowered. Potatoes, thanks gribnevoy landing, is more comfortable than if it were a solid fit, as it is practiced in private traders "- said Valery Adaev.
However, the loss will be unique. The fault of the weather or a 2-week downtime, but potatoes are not fully assembled. Behind him are onions, carrots, cabbage and beets, which are also at risk of dying. If the rains do not stop, we would be half the crop. Blame that in Mordovia and Tatarstan no better, silly. Before the first frost is necessary to remove another 13 tons of potatoes, otherwise it will be too late. According to calculations of farmers in early November, will leave the technology fields.
