Nov. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Russia’s southern Krasnodar region had a record rice crop of 940,000 metric tons this year, the regional administration said.
This is about 40,000 tons more than a year earlier, the government said on its website yesterday. The Krasnoarmeisky district had the highest average yield of 7.3 tons from each hectare (2.47 acres), it said. Krasnodar’s total grains crop was 11.5 million tons, Alexander Tkachev, the region’s governor, said in the statement.
