Except harvesting, landowners, the regional power, Mchsniki think how without loss to collect and keep grain. And first of all to save it from fire. After all, obvious threat to turn a crop on the ashes traps massifs almost an every day. Every day divisions of the Ministry of Emergency Situations stop fire on the way to fields. And the human negligence becomes fault to all. After all crops and forest belts protecting them very dry.
