In Kabardino-Balkaria fruit and berry products increased by 4 times

Farmers of Kabardino-Balkaria Republic have quadrupled the production of fruits and berries in 10 years. Such results were achieved thanks to the introduction of intensive technologies in the cultivation of pome and fruit crops, the Ministry of Agriculture of the republic reports.

"Over the past 10 years, the gross harvest of fruits and berries in Kabardino-Balkaria has grown almost 4 times. So, in 2010, all categories of farms harvested 90.4 thousand tons of fruit and berry products, in 2019 the harvest of fruits and berries amounted to 349.5 thousand tons. The laying of perennial plantings will continue in autumn in the republic," the ministry said.

Kabardino-Balkaria is a leader in the development of intensive horticulture in the Russia Federation. In 2008-2019, over 13 thousand hectares of intensive gardens were laid in the republic. Intensive gardening involves planting 800-1000 trees per hectare of land; fruiting begins in the second year.
