The issues of agriculture sector were discussed with the President: the volumes, variety of exports, progress of autumn field work. Alexander Lukashenko set the task to complete the harvesting by November 7.
Many types of agricultural products from the Belarusian fields will be in demand among our closest neighbors this season. Therefore, the President requires careful attention to each of the plant crops and to monitor prices in the inner market as well. 99 % of the field area was harvested in the country. More than 7 million tons of grain has been harvested. The average yield, as compared to the last year, increased by 3,5 % per hectare.
