Higher yields despite negative weather conditions
DESPITE dismal weather conditions delaying harvesting, the Rostov region of Russia has seen increased yields this year.
More than 80% of the area planted with potatoes has now been harvested and the gross harvest amounted to more than 140,000 tons. Local officials said this year's yield exceeds last year’s figures by 1.3 tons/ha and amounted to 29 tons/ha.
The quality of Don potatoes is also quite high in the current season and is in demand both within the region and beyond.
