The system of land reclamation is being revived In the Perm region by order of Victor Basargin.
January 22, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of the Perm Region held a meeting on the resumption of reclamation activities. It was attended by representatives of the State Organization Permmeliovodhoz Management, Permpromproekt, SCAS Permsky, managers and agronomists of large enterprises and farms engaged in the production of potatoes and vegetables.
According to experts, reclamation systems have not been designed or reconstructed in the region for nearly two decades. In the context of climate change, often associated with recurrent drought, the most effective means of ensuring sustainability of agricultural production are water reclamation measures - irrigation and drainage.
On behalf of Governor Victor Basargin, from 2014 Ministry of Agriculture and Food is implementing the project "High-intensity crop production" which includes activities to support the reclamation: acquisition of reclamation machinery, equipment and machines for the reclamation work. This year, the Perm Region budget assigns 6.2 million rubles to subsidize these activities. "However, this amount may be increased depending on the applications of the enterprises," the Ministry explained.
On the proposal of leaders of major potato-growing farms Vladimir Tikhomirov (OOO Oven), Vladimir Krivolapov (OOO Belyaevka), Ivan Makarov (OOO Luch), and CF A. Khavyev, decision was made to finance the acquisition of machinery and equipment for irrigation in 2014. Before February 15, enterprises should send information to the Ministry on the planned acquisition of land reclamation and sprinkling machines, equipment and machinery.
