Earth characteristics

Most of the arable land, about 77%, is located in the deep chernozem zone. In the remaining lands, podzoliс gray (ash gray) soils predominate.

Chernozem soils are high in humus content (5-15%), with neutral reaction and lumpy structure, which keeps moisture and is suitable for growing of most crops. Podzolic soils also allow to get stable yields of corn, rapeseed, soya with the relevant agrochemical technologies.
The annual rainfall in the areas is 550-650 mm, and the level of sun radiation is 3800 - 4200 MJ / sq.m, that is sufficient for cultivation of most crops.
