Farmers and agricultural enterprises of the Kemerovo region are gaining momentum in preparing for the sowing campaign. They are currently purchasing mineral fertilizers.
As of January 31, they signed contracts for the supply of 27.3 thousand tons of mineral fertilizers, and 12.5 thousand tons were accumulated for use during the spring fieldwork in 2022 (mainly carbamide-ammoniac compound, liquid ammonia and NPK).
