8,800 tons of seeds to be imported for spring sowing


Mongolia is planning to sow grain on 315,000 hectares of land, wheat on 304,000 hectares of land, and potato on 15,400 hectares of land this spring.
Regarding the spring sowing, the parliament of Mongolia decided to exempt 20,000 tons of crop seed from customs tax and value added tax (VAT).
Seeds will be imported from Altay Prefecture in China and Buryatia in Russia.
The state is allocating quotas for the seed importing businesses. The Fund on Supporting Crop Farming has therefore planned to import 8,800 tons of seeds this spring.
Spring sowing will start in late April and will end by May 10, according to the preliminary plans of the Ministry of Industry and Agriculture.
