President announced a month of planting crops on homestead lands

At the meeting, held on March 23 under the chairmanship of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, particular attention was also paid to the organization of effective use of homestead lands. Activity of the Council of Farmers of Uzbekistan was terminated for non-compliance with the requirements, a Council of Farmers, Dehkan Farms and Owners of Household Lands has been established instead. It was stated that activities of the council on organizing the use of fertile household plots owned by the population and dehkan farms absolutely do not meet the requirements, local khokimiyats are also showing indifference in this issue.

Recently, the state of use of homestead lands in Bukhara, Navoi and Samarkand regions has been studied, during which their inefficient use in some areas was identified. Many people have 8-10 ares of household plots, but nothing is grown on them.

The Head of the state cited as an example the industrious people who are receiving high yields and large income in small areas, thus ensuring well-being of a family.

We have a fertile land, hard-working people. However, homestead lands – such a large reserve – is not used. Therefore, starting from today, it is necessary to announce a month of planting crops on homestead lands. It will be too late tomorrow if not to plant today, said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

For helping the population in this direction, instructions were given on organizing “Tomorqa khizmati” (Homestead lands service) enterprise in districts, to create a system for providing household plots with seedlings, mineral fertilizers, chemical preparations, and providing them with mechanized and other services. The same enterprises will be engaged in purchase, processing, storage and export of crops.
