The Ministry held a working meeting dedicated to the implementation of the project on agro-landscape soil-protective farming system. It was attended by Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Tatarstan, Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Republic of Tatarstan Marat Zyabbarov, Deputy Minister Dmitry Yashin, head of Agroproekt LLC Ildus Gabdrakhmanov, heads of farms.
The implementation of the project has a huge number of advantages for agricultural producers. It will make it possible to analyze the ecological, geographical and agro-climatic conditions of an agricultural enterprise, to determine the state and prospects for the development of agricultural production, the prospects for the development of irrigation reclamation, and to conduct an agro-ecological grouping of soils. In addition, the project includes measures to protect soil from erosion, the structure of sown areas and the system of crop rotation, tillage, seed production, measures to preserve and improve soil fertility.
To date, 10 projects have already been developed in the republic. Their implementation begins this year. Another 5 projects are under development.
A special role in the projects is assigned to digitalization. Process automation tools will be implemented in several stages.
