“We strive to create sources of income for the population, to increase gross production. What is needed for this? First of all, water. But in the conditions of Karakalpakstan, accounting for water and land is especially relevant. If you use sparingly, carefully, there will be enough water. To do this, it is necessary to improve the farming culture, introduce innovative technologies”, the President said.
