MOSCOW, 8 November (BelTA) - In January-September of this year the agricultural output in the Eurasian Economic Union (farms of all categories) increased by 5.4% year-on-year, BelTA learned from the Eurasian Economic Commission.
"All EAEU member states posted positive dynamics: Kazakhstan - 6.9%, Kyrgyzstan - 6.5%, Russia - 5.2%, Belarus - 4.9%, Armenia - 0.5%," the EEC noted.
The increase in agricultural production in the EAEU states is associated with a good harvest of the main agricultural crops, primarily grain and leguminous crops, on the heels of higher yields. “As of late September grain harvest in Kyrgyzstan was 45.4% higher year-on-year. As of 1 October of this year it was 59.7% higher in Armenia, 32.5% higher in Russia, and 23.4% - in Belarus,” the EEC said.
"In January-September 2022, the production of livestock and poultry (in live weight) in the EAEU rose by 2.8%, that milk - by 1.0%, eggs - by 2.3%," the EEC added.
