The President instructed to speed up the harvest of cotton and the sowing of wheat, and agricultural workers thanked him for the permission to buy oilcake

President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov ordered the khyakims of a number of velayats to speed up the cotton harvest and sowing during a working meeting on October 3. This was reported by the state news agency TDH .


Recall that in 2021, farmersĀ  reported on the implementation of the plan for cottonĀ  only on November 11, and wheat sowing was completed on November 1.


The head of state ordered Yazmukhammet Gurbanov , head of the Akhal velayat , to speed up the pace of the cotton harvest, as well as to ensure the uninterrupted operation of cotton gins, collection points and combines.


Khyakim of the Dashoguz velayat Nazarmyrat Nazarmyradov said that uniform seedlings had already been obtained on the fields sown with grain. However, the president still instructed him to accelerate the pace of sowing wheat to complete it on time.


The khyakim of the Lebap velayat Shohrat Amangeldiyev was also entrusted with speeding up the sowing season .


In early September, the Chronicle of Turkmenistan reported that the leaders of the agricultural associations of the Lebap velayat gave the tenants three days to free the land allotted to them from tomatoes and vegetables and sow them with winter wheat. On October 1, Radio Azatlyk reported that in the Serdar and Bereket etraps of the Balkan velayat, by order of local authorities, crops of carrots and cabbage are being destroyed in order to prepare the land for sowing wheat.


After the heads of the regions, Deputy Prime Minister Annageldi Yazmyradov , who is in charge of the agro-industrial complex, also reported on the progress of the sowing and cotton harvest . In addition, he reported on the provision of domestic markets with vegetables, melons, fruits and other food products of domestic production.


The President instructed the Deputy Prime Minister to keep under constant control issues related to accelerating the pace of cotton harvesting and wheat sowing.


The publication also writes that the meeting participants, on behalf of the farmers, thanked Serdar Berdimuhamedov for the Resolution signed on September 23 , according to which, from 2022, they will be sold 50% of bran, cake, cake and beet pulp.


In April 2022, in order to cheer up the villagers, the etrap administrations promised to give them cotton processing products – husks and cake, which are used to feed livestock. This is a good incentive for local residents – in December 2020, tenants complained that they were not only not being given cotton processing products, but they were even refusing to sell cake at the state price.
