The most educated representatives of the rural population got acquainted with the advanced works on agrarian culture printed in the capital's magazines and tried put some tips out of them in practice. Among these representatives is the Ust-Kulom peasant Ivan Stepanovich Rassykhayev, who left behind himself diary records for almost every day, where he painted weather conditions, different crops, which, under different weather conditions, should bring the optimal harvest.
