Good Harvest in Jewish Land Settlement Areas in Crimea Foretoid by Moscow “emess”: Will Prove Greate

300 experienced grain binders have been sent out to Crimea by the Tractor Centre in Moscow to help the Jewish colonists with their harvest in connection with the big Soviet grain campaign which starts on Thursday. The Agrojoint has concluded an agreement with the Tractor Centre handing over 10 Agrojoint combines to the Tractor Stations of the Jewish regions of Freidorf and Smidovitch. The Agrojoint has a total of 36 combines working in the Crimea.

The Jewish autonomous regions are mobilising young and old, students and women, for the work in the fields for the coming harvest, the Yiddish daily “Emess” here writes. The crops are exceptionally fine, it says, and if successfully harvested will prove the greatest incentive for the next emigration campaign from the Jewish parts of White Russia and the Ukraine to the land settlement areas in the Crimea.
