Mogilev to start production of flax using space technologies in 2015

Precision farming system will be introduced in flax production in Mogilev region next year, Mogilev region executive committee's chairman Petr Rudnik told.

Flax is a strategic resource for both Mogilev region and the country. The region must reach high yield of flax, retted straw and flax fibre of high quality. Orsha flax processing factory needs it. "To achieve the tasks set, reach a qualitatively new level of production and increase its competitiveness and profitability we will use space technologies", Petr Rudnik explained.

Agrarians of Mogilev region plan to take the experience of Brazil as an example; this country uses the technology wide-scale. "Dobrovolets" farm of Klichev district has already tried on using space technologies. It resulted in 20% decrease of production costs of the grain produced. But the price to be paid is high: Br7 bln is needed to purchase equipment and agricultural machines.

The Braazilian partners have been suggested to open a joint stock company producing such equipment in Belarus; it will promote saving money for buying the machines. JSC "Bobruiskselmash" is likely to become a piloting production site.
