There are no problems with the supply of preferential diesel fuel in the height of the sowing campaign. Fielders aren’t hampered by unfavorable weather conditions, the Vice-Minister noted.

This year it is planned to master almost 21 million hectares of acreage, of which about 15 million hectares are sown with grain. Preference is traditionally given to wheat.

“To date, of 375 thousand tons of diesel fuel, about 350 thousand tons have already been paid for by the regions. About 270 thousand tons were shipped. Work on shipping and payment goes well. I am sure that spring-field works will be completed in the established time,” T. Rakhimbekov said.

In addition to cereals, maize, rice, oilseeds, perennial grasses, potatoes, vegetables, melons, sugar beets, and cotton will be sown in Kazakhstan.
