Turkmenistan will sow winter wheat at an area of 860,000 hectares of land. The country plans to collect 1.6 million tons of raw materials in 2014, Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov's decree said today.
The Turkmen President also ordered to control issues concerning the quality of seeds, the widespread introduction of evidence-based methods of cultivation of crops taking into account local soil and climatic conditions of each province.
This year, Turkmenistan managed to collect 1.6 million tons of wheat. These indices exceed last year's ones. More than 1,880 Case, New Holland, John Deere and CLAAS combine harvesters were used.
Turkmengallaonumleri carries out the payment for grain farmers for the harvest through the local branches of the State commercial bank Daykhanbank.
In 2010 Turkmenistan started to export food grains. In particular, out of the crop that was grown in the country at that time through the State Commodity and Raw Materials Exchange of Turkmenistan 150,000 tons of wheat were sold on the foreign market and 30,000 tons were sold on the domestic market.
Last year the Turkmengallaonumleri (Turkmenhleboprodukty) state association was allowed to sell 300,000 tons of wheat on foreign markets from the volume of the harvest of 2011 which exceeded the domestic needs.
