First harvest started in Mogilev; 15,000 ha of perennial grasses harvested by May 26

By May 26 all districts of Mogilev region started the first hay harvest campaign. So far, 15,000 ha of perennial grasses (i.e. 7% to the target) has been harvested; 55% of the haylage (8.3 thousand ha) has been stored, agriculture and food supplies committee of Mogilev region executive committee informs.

"Osipovichi district is the leader of the first hay harvest campaign; it has harvested about 13%", specialists say. "Each of Slavgorod, Shklov, Krugloe, Krichev and Kostjukovichi districts has harvested 10%".

This year hay harvest campaign started two weeks earlier than in 2013. Thus, only 5.8 thousand ha was harvested this time last year (it was 2% to the target); it is 5% less than this year's rate. It is favourable weather conditions that stand behind this rate, specialists of the agriculture and food supplies committee say.
