Miratorg restores 800 hectares of abandoned fields in Kursk Region in 2018
Kursk, May 07, 2018. Miratorg , Russia’s largest vertically-integrated agribusiness corporation, announces its plans to restore 800 hectares of abandoned fields in Kursky, Oktyabrsky and Fatezhsky Districts of Kursk Region in 2018.
Crop farming lies at the heart of Miratorg operations providing its feedstuff division with natural crops to produce feedstuff for pork and poultry divisions. As part of a project aimed at doubling the company’s pork production company's Miratorg invests in expansion and cultivation of available land for crop farming.
Miratorg's crop farming division has already brought back to life more than 2,300 hectares of derelict land in Zolotukhinsky, Kursky, Oktyabrsky, and Fatezhsky Districts of Kursk Region from 2015 to 2017. The restored cropland has being put to use to grow grain and legumes – winter and spring wheat, triticale, maize, barley, and similar crops.
To restore abandoned lands is a labour-intensive, costly, and lengthy process, demanding substantial financial input, the availability of specialised agricultural machinery, and carrying out a sequence of soil-improvement processes. Regenerating derelict land and returning its soil to the quality needed for crop farming is work for which the Miratorg has been deploying the latest maximum-efficiency equipment, along with the most advanced global-level technology in the sphere of land management.
“Land is the most precious resource our company has. Producing the raw materials for our feedstuff plants enables us to control the net cost of the final product , as well as guaranteeing meat top-quality. Not only Miratorg is strongly committed to maintaining the productivity of farmland at a consistently high level, but also ready and willing to bring back to life thousands of hectares of abandoned farmland”, Miratorg Press Service stated.
