The dictator decided to grow thermophilic plants in Brest and Homel regions.
Two orchards named after Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon will be planted in Brest and Homel regions. Lukashenka gave a corresponding instruction during his official visit to Tajikistan, BelTA reports.
Aliaksandr Lukashenka noted that he discussed this topic with Emomali Ramon on the way to the assembly plant of Belarusian farm machines in Hisor. “In Tajikistan they too have severe frosts in winter but local gardens survive. Can we not cultivate the varieties grown in Tajikistan in Homel and Brest regions? I have a feeling that these varieties will grow well in Belarus,” - he said.
He gave instructions to lay gardens in each of the abovementioned regions and to provide the sufficient areas of land.
- The project is worth a try. The climate is changing. We have already been growing watermelons in central Belarus,” - Lukashenka said.
