Combines that have collected dust at showrooms leaving the premises one by one

APK-Inform reports that AIC-Minister Serhiy Ryzhouk announced increased combine and tractor sales during the first five months of the year due to attracting cash from private farmers. Thus, 1,133 tractors and combines were sold.

He believes that the number of sold equipment of this kind will double before the harvesting campaign starts.

For instance, in Donetsk Oblast 128 grain harvesters have been bought during the first 4 months of 2002 along with 50 combines in May. Thus, the load per combine will now decrease from 285ha per machine to 195ha per machine.
