"Lioncrock" knocked down potato harvests in Primorsky Krai

The administration of Primorsky Krai reported that about 25 000 tons of potatoes have already been harvested in the region. “High yields are reported in Anuchinsky and Pozharsky districts - 220 centners per hectare,” the official release notes.

However, Typhoon Lioncrock badly damaged the fields where potatoes were planted. In this regard, the regional authorities decided to purchase and send tons of potatoes from the Altai Territory to the affected areas of 130. It is noted that deliveries from Siberia will continue.

According to the vice-governor of Primorye Sergey Sidorenko, “the losses of potatoes and vegetables are more substantial, but the prices of these important food products are stable, and in some species lower than last year’s level”. Also, Mr. Sidorenko notes that, despite the typhoon, this year a good harvest of soybeans, rice and corn is expected.
