"Blind" use of fertilizers caused impoverishment of agricultural lands in Kazakhstan - Ministry of Agriculture

14.11.2017 Astana. November 14. KazTAG - The Ministry of Agriculture believes that "blind" use of fertilizers has caused impoverishment of agricultural lands in Kazakhstan.
"We have created the maps of agricultural-chemical research of soil in each region and district. We have detected the areas of lands with low content of azote and phosphorus. It is a result of weak use of fertilizers, often "blind use", without taking in account the condition of soils," said Kairat Aituganov, Deputy Minister of Agriculture at the session of the Government.
In his words, under the need of 2.6 mln tons of fertilizers only 10% of the demand is covered. For the first time in 2017 the new subsidizing system has increased the volume to 14%.
"Now it is necessary to fix the requirements on fertilizers' subsidizing taking in account agro-chemical condition of soils and spread them in the right areas. The Ministry has developed single norms for each region. It will release 3.9 bn tenge," he added.
