Nazarbayev: Results of harvesting campaign – precious gift for 25th anniversary of Independence
Kazakhstan is approaching the completion of harvesting campaign – this event is important for the villagers, the agro-industrial complex and the entire country.
The results of the campaign can serve as an evidence of a precious gift for the 25th anniversary of Independence. This year’s harvest is one of the highest over the entire period.
Gross grain harvest exceeded 23 million tons – 1,5 more than last year. More than 5 million tons of grain were received in Akmola, North Kazakhstan and Kostanay regions. Karaganda region harvested a record grain harvest – more than one million tons.
There are some other impressive results in the harvesting campaign – Kyzylorda region reached a record level of rice yield. The harvest of vegetables and melons in Almaty, Zhambyl and South Kazakhstan regions significantly increased. It is expected the oil-bearing crops harvest to increase by 1.2 times at the highest yield over the last five years.
All this shows the successful development of crop sector – one of the most labor-intensive, requiring tireless care, a huge commitment, knowledge and experience. I would like to congratulate all the people involved in this sector, and thank them for their hard work.
All these years, the government managed to find the possibility to support the agro-industrial sector, considered as a strategic priority.
