In spring 1944 partisans could be seen in almost every village: in fields, gardens, and blacksmith shops. Some plowed land, others repaired inventory or patrolled the area. The Red Army men also provided assistance. The spring sowing plan was met in full. Out of 333,000 hectares, some 236,678 hectares (70%) were plowed by horses, 74,600 by tractors, and 21,722 hectares by hand.
Farmers, partisans and the Red Army soldiers won a difficult spring sowing battle in 1944. There was, however, another battle ahead - to liberate Belarus.
