This year, eight thousand one hundred hectares are allocated for rice checks. Farmers intend to collect 35 thousand tons of food grain from them, "Turkmenistan: Golden age" reports.
Preference is given to rice varieties "Nukus-2", "Munbashi" and "Alenga", which are well-proven in local soil and climatic conditions and are characterized by high yield and disease resistance.
Almost the entire crop is grown in two specialized farms of the Saparmurat Turkmenbashi etrap, which is the main producer of this crop in the Northern region. 130 modern high-performance combines and a large number of vehicles for transportation are involved in the harvesting campaign.
For rice processing, the state has built a high-tech enterprise designed for annual production of up to 30 thousand tons of rice and providing farmers with high-quality seed material.
