How farmers are keeping Russia fed

Right now, farmers and agri-business Russia-wide are continuing to serve the needs of the Russian people.
Fruits and vegetables, cereal crops are being deferred away from export channels and into domestic shops and factories.
The ban on Western foods has already helped improve Russian agricultural production. Thanks to this, producers are able to keep supplies going and the population fed.
"The accumulated safety margin in the industry allows us to fully ensure the country's food security," the Agriculture Ministry told Reuters. "Even in conditions of higher demand, the country's domestic needs for basic foodstuffs are fully met by existing production."
Moscow's Western food import embargo has boosted domestic production of vegetables and apples said Andrei Sizov, of the SovEcon agriculture consultancy.
The greenhouse sector is forecast to be particularly bountiful in 2020.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, 1.25m tons of greenhouse crops will be planted this year. That’s a 6.1% increase against 2019’s levels.

How the government is helping

Russia’s government has always been very supportive of the agricultural sector. Now, it is gearing up to prepare a range of fresh measures to ensure productivity stays high.
Options being mooted are encouraging more citizens to work on farming projects in Russia’s key agricultural provinces.
Other support solutions include a fresh range of low-interest loans and subsidies on top of the normal government-led financing initiatives.
This cash injection will help farmers outfit themselves with the equipment and machinery they need to cope with an expected upswing in domestic demand for agriproducts.
While the exact measures have yet to be decided, based on the historic support, and the extraordinary nature of the current global situation, more government support IS coming.
