MINSK, 26 July (BelTA) – Both pace and quality are important in harvest, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a conference to discuss the progress in the harvest campaign on 26 July, BelTA has learned.
"Indeed, pace is important, as this period is fast-paced, short-lived. But pace without quality is not something we need. Pace is important but secondary. We've never prioritized it. The main thing is quality," the Belarusian leader stressed.
He, in particular, drew attention to the harvesting of downed crops. "Grain must be saved. Tactics is up to you. This is very important," he said and urged reward farmers for good work.
