In particular, 1000 tons of good-quality seed-potatoes had been imported into the country. According to preliminary estimates, areas under wheat crop were up by about 8.000 ha. The efforts for the provision of sufficient quantities of fertilizers to marzes and communities will have been completed by late May. The Minister stressed that in order to address the problems arising from the use of land in Krasnoselsk, Amasia, Syunik and Tavoush, a scheme for subsidies was being developed for these marzes.
