Kremlin plans to step up Brezhnev food program

The Kremlin leadership indicated that a national food program introduced by late Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev was not solving agricultural problems and that increased efforts were required to raise farm output.

In a resolution on fulfillment of the food program by a farm in the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan, the Communist Party Central Committee listed almost every recognized shortcoming in Soviet agriculture. The Communist Party daily Pravda published the resolution on its front page Sunday. The resolution was reportedly the first detailed comment published on the state of Soviet agriculture under new Communist Party chief Yuri Andropov.
