In this regard, the meeting put the question on the allocation of farmers land, the right crop for strengthening the fodder base.
It was noted that the feed demand for livestock in the country is 120 million tons, but last year produced only 47 million tonnes (demand satisfied 40 percent).
"Around the world in fattening cattle used silo and combined forage. In Yangiyul district (Tashkent region) as double crops were grown intensive variety of corn, which received 50-60 tons of silage, the cost of 1 kg which was only 150 soums. A kilogram of husk worth on the market more than 2 thousand soms (one dollar — 9500 soums). This means that breeders are able to grow food 10 times cheaper meal and husk," it was noted at the meeting.
Criticized the fact that on the ground, instead of taking measures to cover the deficit of the feed, the land allocated for fodder crops, are not used efficiently and not on purpose, and despite the fact that on one hectare you can grow up to 100 tons of feed wheat.
"How can you explain that 16 thousand hectares in Syrdarya, 8.5 thousand hectares in Tashkent region are not used after harvesting the grain?", put the question Mirziyoev.
The head of state pointed to similar problems in the poultry industry, noting that 70-75 percent of the industry's needs in the feed are provided by imports.
"For the first 10 months of this year were imported 160 thousand tons of soybean and sunflower meal for $ 80 million and 80 thousand tons of corn for $ 14 million. Industry companies for procurement of feed this year was allocated only 5 thousand hectares of land instead of the planned 137 thousand hectares", said the President.
