“We are regaining the status of an agrarian state - in a good definition of the word - perhaps not as quickly as we would like to,” Medvedev said underscoring that “Russia has always been an agrarian state and now it is very important both to provide the population with domestic food and to export it, using the opportunities of normal harvest.”
Governor Potomsky said that the crops would yield about three million tonnes in the Oryol region this year (against the last year’s 2.8 million tonnes).
“Our forecasts for the yield are rather impressive as we have counted spikelets with a special formula and come up to three million tonnes,” he said adding that new grain storage silos had being constructed in the region at present because of their shortage.
Over one thousand of modern harvesters are in the fields, including home-made machines.
“It is good that the harvest prospects are high and we should do everything possible to maintain it,” Medvedev said.
