Agriculture ministry eyes students to help with sowing campaign

Deputy agriculture minister Vasil Paulouski: "We lack 6 thousand machine operators. We might have to ask students and university graduates to work in some collective farms. Every worker with a relevant driving license is being considered at the moment."

The sowing campaign will be short this year – from 10 days to two weeks. It will begin on April 15-17 in the southern areas of Belarus and after April 20 in the north.
