Agriculture is an important part of the economy and makes a significant contribution to ensuring food security. And the dynamic development of agriculture largely depends on the condition and fertility of the soil. Industry experts are sounding the alarm - in recent years, agricultural lands have increasingly been degraded. And this, in its turn, inevitably leads to loss of fertility, reduction of yields. Aziz Nurbekov, the author of the manual on conservation agriculture in irrigated agriculture in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, the FAO expert on agronomy, in an exclusive interview to the World of NAN provides information about how conservation agriculture can help Kazakh farmers to get a high yield and what innovative methods should be introduced in agriculture of our country.
