Volga Baikal AGRO NEWS Update on the RF Seeds Market !!!

The agrarian-industrial complex of the Russian Federation will be able to fully provide itself with seeds of its own production not earlier than 2024

according to the Russian Ministry of Agriculture.

Now Russia, for a number of crops, does not provide itself with seeds according to the norms of the Food Security Doctrine (at least 75%). “If we are more or less good with wheat, more than 90% we are self-sufficient, but we have rather weak positions in a number of other crops,” – said Oksana Luth, First Deputy Minister of Agriculture.

It is necessary to concentrate on the creation of new varieties, new hybrids that will be of high quality, good yield, and resistance to the negative factors that exist. Also the seeds should be suitable for the Russian natural and climatic conditions.

The Ministry of Agriculture will more intensively stimulate investment activities to create selection and seed centers.
