The agricultural farm Putrishki has launched forage harvesting from mixed plantings of winter colza and rye. The mixture of these crops is designed to produce the earliest green fodder. It is usually the beginning of the fodder conservation in almost all agricultural enterprises. Developing in the autumn and early spring period, it gives crops of green mass at the time when there is no other green fodder yet. The farm has allocated some 150 hectares for these purposes this year.
