The event was at­tended by hokims of the re­gion and dis­tricts, of­fi­cials of the pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice, tax departments and law en­force­ment agen­cies, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of re­spon­si­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions and cot­ton farms.

With 3,766 farms in the re­gion, on the ba­sis of ac­cu­rate cal­cu­la­tions, con­tracts for the har­vest­ing of over 223,000 tons of cot­ton have been made this sea­son. In ac­cor­dance with the de­cree of the Pres­i­dent of the coun­try signed Jan­uary 4, 2018, the re­gions are pro­vided with 54 new multi-row seed­ers. Be­fore the start of the sow­ing cam­paign, an­other 50 are planned.

“Based on the analysis of the de­fi­cien­cies ad­mit­ted dur­ing the plant­ing sea­son of the pre­vi­ous year, 277 squads have been formed which will pre­pare the soil for timely sow­ing, so that cot­ton grows due to soil mois­ture,” said I. Rakhi­mov, head of the sec­re­tar­iat of the re­gional deputy gov­er­nor on agriculture and wa­ter re­sources. “4,644 seed­ers, highly pro­duc­tive equip­ment, lev­els, har­rows, big and small chis­els, nec­es­sary ve­hi­cles are pro­vided to these de­tach­ments. Last sea­son, due to lack of tech­nol­ogy, the plant­ing sea­son lasted al­most a month. This year, with full in­volve­ment of the in­volved equip­ment and la­bor in the day, it will be pos­si­ble to pre­pare for sow­ing 6,649 hectares of land. Works will be con­ducted in two shifts.

For the plant­ing sea­son, a re­serve of 3.9 thou­sand tons of seeds was pre­pared at an av­er­age rate of 45 kilo­grams per hectare, 39 dis­tri­bu­tion points will op­er­ate. In the course of the cam­paign, 150 kilo­grams of phos­pho­rus and 50 kilo­grams of potas­sium fer­til­iz­ers are planned to be ap­plied to the soil per hectare.

In or­der to of­fer ma­te­rial in­cen­tive for the par­tic­i­pants of the plant­ing sea­son, Bun­y­o­d­kor Gusht-Sut Savdo In­vest will pro­duce 16 tons of veg­etable oil and 166 tons of flour prod­ucts.
