Belarus' agricultural output up 30% since 2010

MINSK, 24 May (BelTA) – Agricultural output in Belarus has increased by 30% since 2010, Belarusian First Deputy Prime Minister Nikolai Snopkov said at a joint sitting of the House of Representatives and the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus on 24 May, BelTA has learned.

“Food security is ensured in the country. The agricultural sector provides the domestic market with meat, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, potatoes, vegetables, melons and gourds. It is important that against the background of a gradual reduction of state support, the agricultural output has grown by 30% since 2010,” Nikolai Snopkov said.

Budget expenses per 1 hectare of agricultural land amounted to $150 in 2022 against $230 in 2010. “The return on Br1 of state support has grown by more than 2.6 times,” the first deputy prime minister said.

The export of Belarusian food in 2022 rose to $8.3 billion, an increase of almost a quarter for the year.
