President held a meeting on effectiveness of activities in agriculture

On March 23, a meeting dedicated to effectiveness of the ongoing activities on accelerated development of agriculture and deepening reforms in this sphere was held under the chairmanship of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

The meeting was attended by the Prime Minister and his deputies, officials of relevant ministries and departments, leadership of the Republic of Karakalpakstan and khokims of the regions.

At the meeting, importance of timely and qualitative implementation of agrotechnical measures for achieving high yields was noted. Good germination is observed on grain fields of farmers, who timely introduced mineral fertilizers and carried out irrigation.

However, wheat growth is lagging behind in several thousand hectares of areas. This situation is observed in particular fields of Tashkent, Jizzakh, Surkhandarya, Kashkadarya, Bukhara and Namangan regions.

The main reason for this is improper management organization of the regions and districts, by employees of irrigation systems on efficient use of water. As a result, a large part of water resources intended for wheat are spent on irrigation of other crops. At the meeting it was noted that khokims and heads of irrigation networks at places should properly organize the activity on timely watering the fields.
