Possibility of leakage Ryazanskiye Vedomosti

The agricultural year begins very “fruitfully”. The main sign of this has been felt by everyone for a few weeks now. For the first time in many years, instead of meadows from the highest point of the Oka Bridge, you can see the sea on the horizon. The eye has overflowed, and the water level has risen more than 5 meters. The entire floodplain is already well saturated with moisture, but the water will not go down for long. Before this flood, there were many completely “dry” years, when the water meadows did not receive enough water in the spring. This immediately affected the roots and overall yield. But now everything is back to normal.
The leak is very important for the Ryazan area. Not for nothing that the whole country knew in Soviet times from the main product produced here – milk. And to achieve this in an age when high technology was not yet possible, it was possible thanks to the famous Oka Flood Plain, a special ecosystem that probably has no analogue anywhere in the world. In it thick fodder grasses matured every year and the cows adorned the landscapes all the way along the river. By the way, Oka free space has always served as one of the sources of inspiration for the national artist V. Ivanov, who immortalized Ryazan’s views in his paintings. In addition to the spring water that came to the meadows in the spring, in the summer they were watered with a special system that further favored the growth of grass. And then in the “green sea” began to strike numerous fountains, which also automatically rotated around their axis. Now such systems are no longer in the open spaces of the floodplain and technologies have changed for a long time. High-productivity cows now have mostly a permanent loose “yard”, that is, they walk in modern large farms, receive high-protein feed and give such milk yields that even 20 years ago it was impossible to imagine .
And what about the floodplain? There is even pleased artists, filmmakers, balloon or paraglider enthusiasts, as well as beekeepers. The better the Oka fields feel, the more wildflowers they have, which give particularly valuable light honey. In addition, the floodplain has become an indicator of climate change in the region, something that can hardly be missed.
But where does it all go? Scientists, representatives of the Department of Geography of Ryazan State University, have been dealing with this issue for a long time. And that’s what they say comes out. The Ryazan region, for its relatively well-studied paleontological history, has managed to visit both the desert and the seabed of the prehistoric ocean, and the jungle of the dinosaur era. But in the last 4,000 years, the climate here has changed in the most radical way. If thousands of square kilometers of swamps are spread, then dense coniferous forests will grow, then suddenly everything will become flat, like a table and the territory of the future area will be merged with the zone of large steppes. And now we are present in the next change of climate zones. Previously, the Ryazan was a kind of “gateway” to central Eurasia and the climate here ceased to be Atlantic, becoming continental. This happens when there is little rainfall, the summers are dry and hot and the winters are not snowy and harsh. The peak of this climate is observed in Yakutia. And now we are “shifting” in the climate map in a completely different direction. For this, the area does not need to move around the world at all. Just wait a while. The next geoclimatic season for us will be marked by a relaxing climate, rising humidity and a transition to the weather conditions that characterize the Balkan countries, which are very close to the Mediterranean Sea. At the very least, this is indicated by climate cycles, observations and objective dynamics. And that means new, unique opportunities will open up for the Ryazan region in the agricultural sector. First of all we will become the country of green enclosures. Beekeeping will also flourish. It will not do without an increase in tuber plantations.
Overall, the land has every chance of becoming a granary producing high-demand food items, no worse than it is organized in Moldova or Serbia. In the southern regions of the region, it is very likely that nature will allow even viticulture. And the agro-industrial complex should be prepared for this already, as the weather transition has now entered the active phase, the climate is slightly “feverish” and the long absence of leakage can indirectly testify to it. Already in 10-15 years, and even more in 50 years, Ryazan fertility will be compared to that of Southern Europe. Meanwhile, the “movement” on the climate map is at such a stage that temperature fluctuations and rainfall already correspond to southern Belarus. And this process continues.
