Sinara Group’s Kamenskoye Done With Harvesting

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, October 3, 2017. Sinara Group’s Kamenskoye Farm, one of the Mid-Urals’ largest agricultural businesses, is about to finish this year’s harvesting campaign. All the vegetables and grains outputs happen to exceed the target figures for this season (haylage by 118% and silage by 150%). Additionally, the farm picked as many as 3,500 kg of crops off every hectare, the Group’s press service reports.

All the haylage, potatoes, rape seed, and grains have been harvested by now. The only remaining task is to collect the corn silage. The next stage is fall-plowing. The grain drying plants are now busy processing the grains and filtering them from weeds for winter storage; the sowing material for the spring of 2018 also gets selected.

Kamenskoye bought Acros (a new grain harvester), Navigator (a rake unit), Kuhn (a French mower), MTZ 1221 (a tractor), and two subsoil cultivators this year. The latter are already being used for soil treatment: 40 cm deep cultivation will help preserve moisture and avoid plow pans.

‘Despite the cold summer and too much humidity, this has been a very good year for field farming. Our output figures only prove this point. We met all our target figures for this year one hundred percent and are now working to create the reserves, that is, the so-called stabilization fund to make up for the possible very dry years in the future,’ says the farm’s Director Alexander Bakhterev.
