7052.4 hectares of autumn crops were sowed in the Martuni region, including 3103.5 hectares of barley and 3918.9 hectares of wheat.

Robert Vanyan, head of the agriculture department of the Martuni regional administration, told Artsakhpress about this, noting that about 15,000 hectares of autumn crops were planted in the region last year. According to him, the residents engaged in agriculture benefit from various state support programs.

After the third Artsakh war, about 65% of arable land remained under the Azerbaijani control.

“Those land users who will be engaged in the cultivation of vegetable crops, will sow planned crops, and will receive 300 thousand drams per hectare as a support,” R. Vanyan added, speaking about irrigation systems, that the irrigation of vegetable crops and tobacco areas is done through drip irrigation systems.
