Belarus' Industry Ministry: Machinery is ready for spring planting


Industry Minister Piotr Parkhomchik told the Belarus 1 TV channel about the technical aspects of preparations for the spring planting, BelTA informs.

“Our ministry and the Agriculture and Food Ministry have fulfilled virtually all the tasks set for us. A great amount of hard and painstaking work has been done. It was not only about the repair of equipment, but also personnel training. Some 1,500 – 1,600 specialists have been retrained to perform equipment repair. The equipment has been prepared, this pertains primarily to tractors, sowing equipment. This gives us confidence that planting will be done properly,” Piotr Parkhomchik said.

The tractor power increases every year, the minister said. “Agricultural workers are no longer happy with 300-350 HP tractors. Today, they want 450-500 HP tractors, powerful seeders. This matter will be dealt with while preparing for the 2023 season,” the minister noted. “Our companies have developed equipment prototypes. We are waiting for orders for this equipment,” Piotr Parkhomchik concluded.
