Russian Prime Minister Looks To Strenthen Domestic Vegetable, Fruit Production

18 February 2016

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated that the country’s counter sanctions against western countries have been beneficial for domestic producers. “The measures for import substitution in agriculture, which we took six months ago, have allowed us to maintain industry growth rates,” Medvedev said, highlighting that the agricultural industry has seen improvement “on the background of an economic recession” and programs initiated to address food security.

For example, Russian potato production is able to fully meet domestic consumer demand. However, there have been limited successes in the production of vegetables and fruit.

Other sectors of Russia's agricultural complex can contribute to development. One such sector is seed production, which has devoted much of its attention to the formation of programs focused on import substitution.

Medvedev also called for more rapid decisions on the allocation of subsidies for farmers.

"Here we now in the month of February,” he said. “We understand that subsidies which are distributed to villages, where production is cyclical and has a seasonal character, is often already useless money in the second half of the year.”
