A large-scale campaign to gather in grain and leguminous crop plants has started in Belarus, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security told Interfax.
The harvesting campaign has started a fortnight earlier than last year due to weather conditions.
The campaign is expected to take 23 days.
In 2007 Belarus is expected to collect at least 7.2 million tonnes of grain.
In 2006 they gathered in 5/9 million tonnes of grain against the forecast of 6.9 mln tonnes.
