Centres of the early farming culture are well-known in the lower and upper reaches of the Syr Darya River for a long time. The strong early state association of the Sakas in the lower reaches of river had rather developed farming and cattle-breeding economy and the first towns. The sites of Chirik-rabat, Babish-mulla 1 and Balandy are ruins of ancient towns fortified by ditches and fortification walls. However, farmers began using the middle riverbed part of lands just after establishment of a large stable political formation able to mobilise population to organise the laborious expenditure to construct canals and to develop the fallow lands. E.g. in the late 1st millennium BCE, as Kangju state had been established, the ancient Otrar oasis as one of the most northern centre of ancient farming culture formed. The early Kangju fortified settlements of farmers appeared and handicrafts, commerce and town building were developed in the lower reaches of Arys. The evidence is the ruins of numerous towns and settlements, which lower layers are dated to the late 1st millennium BCE.

This problem is related to the uncertainty of the place and chronology of the shurabashat culture in the history of the Ferghana region, which was the subject of heated discussions from the 1960s until the 2000s.Most scientists agree that after the ancient agricultural Chust culture comes the Eilat/eilatano-Aktam culture. Note that the Eilat culture is represented only by one settlement and mainly by barrows. Currently, the historiography of ancient Ferghana is dominated by two concepts on this issue, where the first after the eilatan1 culture is put shurabashat1 , and the second2 – kungai-Karabulak, which includes shurabashatskaya. Yu. a. Zadneprovsky dated it to the V-IV centuries BC – the first centuries ad. 3, and according to N. G. Gorbunova, shurabashat type ceramics could not have appeared before the III century BC. 4
