Farmers of Turkistan region collect harvest of watermelons and melons
80 tonnes of melons and watermelons were collected by farmers in the Turkistan region. And this is only the first harvest of the current season. They plan to export more than 50% of products to countries near and far abroad. The vegetables and fruits of local farmers undergo mandatory testing in a special laboratory, after which they are issued with marketing licenses.
“This year’s harvest is fruitful. We collect up to 25 tonnes of watermelons from each hectare. This is an early watermelon variety that ripens in just two months. There are no problems with sales. We export fruits to Russia,” said Namazbai Myrzaliyev, resident of Zhetisai district, Turkistan Region.
