In 1954, February-March Plenum of the Party Central Committee adopted a resolution "On further increase in grain production in the country and the development of virgin and fallow lands" requires the plowing the Eurasian steppe. This was due to the fact that the USSR was rise the shortage of bread. In 1953, the USSR was harvested 31 million tons of grain, spent 32 million tonnes - this shows that the collective and state farms not handle with its principal function - providing food for society. In order to chose the system of self-preservation is much more than usual, an extensive model of the problem. Mitigate the food crisis is expected due to a sharp increase in grain production. In August 1954, in Kazakhstan, was plowed up 6.5 million hectares. By the beginning of 1955 area of cultivated land increased by 8.5 million hectares, was created 90 new farms. In the autumn of 1954 saw the creation of another 250 farms. Total years in virgin lands (1954-1960 gg.) was plowed up 25.5 million hectares. To provide new land manpower mobilization was carried out volunteers from the western areas of the country, which were given considerable benefits - free travel with the property, cash grants of up to 1 thousand rubles. Loan for the construction of up to 20 thousand rubles for 10 years, until two thousand rub. to purchase livestock, agricultural tax exemption from 2 to 5 years. Total for the development of virgin lands in the years 1954-59 has been allocated over 20 billion rubles. In 1955 had to adopt a special resolution of the CC CPSU : 47 steppe areas and 225 farms require to raise beef cattle. Began work on the expansion of irrigation and fodder. As a result, with great difficulty managed to raise the total number of cattle in the country in 1960 to 37.4 million head (in 1928 - 29.7 million head). However, population growth has led to certain difficulties in the provision of food, forcing the authorities in 1962 for the first time to go price increases for meat by 30% and oil - 25%. Planned increase in production of meat three times did not work. Plowing huge squares of virgin lands has led to a sharp reduction in Kazakhstan hayfields and pasture and start a long crisis of traditional agriculture sector of the republic. In general, the development of virgin lands in Kazakhstan has made a major producer of grain in the world and at the same time laid the cause of long-term crisis of agriculture in the country in subsequent years.

Kunaev, who at that time was about 75 years. Everyone understood the need to change the ruling elite, especially since talking about it and Muscovite rulers.
