The Koksu sugar plant in Almaty region noted the high sugar content and quality of beets grown by Pavlodar farmers.
This year, nine farms of Pavlodar region experimentally planted one hectare of sugar beet and received 270 tons of root crops. Thus, the region began preparations for the development of raw materials for the local sugar plant, which is scheduled to be launched in the next two years. In early November, farmers handed over part of the crop to the Koksu sugar plant in Almaty region. Earlier this week, 11 tons of sugar produced from Pavlodar beets were delivered to Pavlodar.
– Employees of the Koksu sugar plant noted the high sugar content of our beets, – says Deputy Chairman of the Board of social and entrepreneurial Corporation “Pavlodar” Mansur Kairbayev. – If in Almaty region this figure is 15%, in Pavlodar region it averaged 18%. This is despite the fact that our farmers did not use fertilizers and specialized equipment. In addition, when the processors received our beets, they asked: did you wash it? The fact is that we have sandy loam soil, which does not stick to the root crop, when in the Almaty region the soil is clay.
Today Pavlodar from sugar beet is stored in the warehouse of the SEC. The Corporation decides how to dispose of the received products: either to lay it in the stabilization Fund, or to give it to the needs of socially vulnerable segments of the population.
Next year, 300 hectares of sugar beet will be planted in Pavlodar region. According to the idea of experts, industrial crops will be produced in different soil conditions – in Zhelezinsky, Pavlodar and Aktogay districts, as well as in the rural area of the city of Aksu.
