Most of the restoration activities started in 1945 were completed in the early 1950s. Although there were promising branches of the national economy in the Tyumen Region, agriculture still formed the basis of the economy. In 1953, the level of the sown areas of 1940 was reached, but the average yield (0,85 tons) was even lower. It was not possible to reach the pre-war level of grain procurements. The standard of living of the villagers remained low. The village was waiting for changes.
The growth of the urban population in the 1950s exacerbated the food problem. The increase in grain production was considered at the February plenum of the Central Committee of the CPSU in 1954, when the development of virgin and fallow lands began. On March 5, 1954, the residents of Tyumen escorted the Komsomol members of the shipyard to the virgin land. In 1954-1962, 768.5 thousand hectares were plowed. Most of the land was plowed in the Ishim, Kazan, Sorokinsky and Maslyansky districts. Hopes for high yields were not justified. The average yield in the region in 1951-1955 was only 0,85 t., in 1956-1960. – 0,9 t. per hectare.
The situation was also difficult in the livestock industry of the region – the lack of feed, the lack of premises, the reduction of haymaking led to the death of livestock. In January 1955, a program was adopted to raise animal husbandry in the Tyumen region. In three years, about 5 thousand farms have been built, the number of livestock has grown. However, this created a feeding problem, which they began to solve by increasing corn crops.
