Russia’s Stavropol Region Completes Planting of Crops for 2012

May 30 (Bloomberg) -- Farmers in Russia’s southern Stavropol region completed sowing winter and spring crops on 2.8 million hectares (6.9 million acres), the governor’s press service said.

Grains cover two-thirds of the seeded area, according to a statement on the region’s website. Locusts infested about 340,000 hectares of local fields and farmers have spread pesticides over 240,000 hectares, it showed.

Stavropol is one of Russia’s main grain-growing areas and last year reaped 8.2 million metric tons, or 8.7 percent of the total national crop, according to figures from the state statistics service.
