Shavkat Mirziyoyev: The need for modern technology is provided only by 25 percent

At the meeting that was held on March 14, under the chairmanship of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, the ministries of finance and agriculture were given instructions on development of a program for production and delivery of agricultural machinery in 2018-2021 within two months, providing for measures on financing the delivery of equipment to customers in order to fully meet the demand for agricultural machinery of JSC “Uzagrotechsanoatholding”.

The Head of the state drew attention to the fact that, when very little time remained before the spring field works on cotton growing, gardening and viticulture, only 1.2 thousand of the required 5.8 thousand units of equipment were delivered to farmers and machine-tractor parks. At the same time, Syrdarya, Jizzakh and Tashkent regions received only 30 percent out of the additional 4 thousand units of equipment allocated to them.

– These days, when modern technology is needed as air and water, the need is provided by only 25 percent, – the President said. – Technology is hands and wings of a farmer. Only by fully meeting the needs in it, one can increase material interest, drastically reduce unnecessary costs.

In this connection, instruction was given on establishing daily monitoring of delivery of equipment for carrying out spring agrotechnical activities and providing information on the results, until April 15 of this year.

– However, a certain part of components and materials are imported from abroad by machine-building enterprises, agricultural machinery is produced on the basis of large-component assembly. Imported tractors, plows, seeders and other equipment are cheaper of those produced in our country, – said the Head of the state.
