The Committee for Emergency Situations of Tajikistan, with reference to the Agency for Hydrometeorology of the country, reports that frosts on the soil surface from -0 to -4 ° C are expected in the foothill and mountainous regions of the country until October 6, 2020.
In this regard, the CoES draws attention to the fact that the first frosts may pose a threat to farmland.
Therefore, the Committee recommends harvesting the ripe crop on time, and not covering the ripe crop with plastic wrap, non-woven fabric or straw. «Particular attention must be paid to the livestock sector – you need to be careful when grazing livestock in mountain pastures», – noted in the CoES.
