2-meter Potato  Monument Set up in Tyumen Region

      Local agrarians have set up a monument to the potato in the Uporovsky District of the Tyumen Region.

      It depicts a two-meter large potato of the Zikura grade.


“We constantly hold tastings of various grades of potato that we plant. The Zikura grade is a constant prize-winner – a representative of the agricultural company, which initiated the sculpture, has underlined.


It should be mentioned that the present monument to the most popular crop in Russia is not the first attempt to immortalize it. In 2008 a potato monument appeared in Mariinsk town of the Kemerovo Region. In the starving year of 1942, during the war, workers of Mariinsk state farm «Red Perekop» gathered 1,331 metric centners of potato from one hectare. So the monument was set up in memory of this amazing event.
