BOBRUISK, 21 April (BelTA) – During his working trip to Bobruisk on 21 April Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko urged agricultural workers to meet planting deadlines, BelTA has learned.

As the head of state arrived in the city, the first thing he did was to ask Mogilev Oblast Governor Leonid Zayats about the state of things with seeding in the region, with the focus on buckwheat. “Make sure that we will be able to produce enough of it. Russians refused to work with us the way they did during the Soviet times – back then we purchased more from them as they grow more buckwheat than we do,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president also asked about other crops. He wanted to know whether agricultural companies have enough fuel and fertilizers. Leonid Zayats noted that there are no big issues. “We will plant everything in time,” he said.

“Keep in mind (this pertains to everyone) the lack of moisture. We cannot access some low lands, even in Gomel Oblast. We need to get the necessary machinery to plow this land,” Aleksandr Lukashenko added.
