Belarus may earn on seed export


Belarus may make money on the export of seeds, Prime Minister of Belarus Mikhail Myasnikovich said as he visited the Natalyevsk Company during his working trip to Cherven District on 19 March.

The head of government noted that the seed production system in Belarus is not perfect yet. There are issues that “need addressing, especially those related to the production of elite and super-elite seeds”. According to Mikhail Myasnikovich, development of this area may become an additional foreign exchange inflow into the country. “We are able to export seeds to Russia and other countries,” the Premier said.

He has instructed the Agriculture and Food Ministry as well as the National Academy of Sciences to scrutinize the issue. “The work should be focused on both satisfying the domestic demand for seeds and seeds sales abroad,” Mikhail Myasnikovich stressed.
