Krasnodar, 17 April. Governmental support will reportedly be granted to the soya producers from Krasnodar krai in the framework of the national project “International cooperation and export.”
The Kuban farmers plan to sow soybeans on an area of over 180,000 hectares. As on now, 6% of the area have already been tilled.
