Crimea to produce more milling wheat

Crimea plans to increase the production of grade 2 and 3 wheat according to the Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Crimea.

According to the Minister, last year’s wheat harvest produced mainly grade 4 and 5 wheat which is not in demand so Crimea must develop the production of grade 2 and 3 wheat for export and domestic use.

Crimean agrarians need to realise all required agricultural works to receive a good wheat harvest, said the Minister, demonstrating a lack of understanding as to how farmers produce milling grade wheat.

The main reason Crimea produced more feed wheat last year was because it rained a lot, there’s only so much farmers can do to produce and protect protein.
