Stavropol, Russia, Might See Strawberry Yeilds Double To 200 Tonnes This Season

22 April 2016

Eight farms in the Stavropol region are expecting to harvest a combined total of 200 tonnes of strawberries this season. This volume could be a new record for the region, which harvested 100 tonnes of strawberries last year.

The total yield could be more if the weather remains favorable.

These farmers are cultivating up to 20 strawberry varieties of domestic selections. Seedlings are purchased at Krasnodar's Institute of Horticulture and Viticulture.

The regional ministry of agriculture has emphasized expanding fields of berry crops. Additionally, farms that grow these types of products are partially reimbursed for their expenses. The region allocated about 4 million rubles, which is twice the amount that was allocated the year before, to provide for such programs.

"Strawberries are one of the most delicious berries. We have very fertile land in the region. and the weather conditions are favorable for growing this crop," Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Stavropol region Vasily Egorov said. "The Ministry is already working on additional possible measures to increase the volume of strawberry cultivation."
