UFA, 13 March 2019. /Bashinform News Agency, Azat Gizatullin/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
The discounts on agricultural equipment produced in Russia for farmers of Bashkortostan amounted to 334 million rubles in 2018. It was announced at a plenary meeting of the agribusiness forum by the deputy director of the “Rosspetsmash” Association Denis Maksimkin. He noted that Russian manufacturers of agricultural equipment promptly respond to the need of farmers to update the machinery and tractor fleet. The volume of shipment of domestic agricultural machinery in Russia amounted to 100.6 billion rubles in 2018. The share of Russian factories in the domestic market over the same period increased from 40 to 60%. Enterprises significantly increase investment, especially in the segments of machinery and equipment that not produced in the Russian Federation. More and more smart domestic equipment works in the fields of Russia. The “Rosspetsmash” Association believes that for the further development of domestic agricultural machinery and agriculture in general, it is necessary to increase the volume of subsidies to 15 billion rubles annually.
Recall that the largest agro-industrial forum and the AgroComplex International Exhibition in the Volga Federal District and Urals opened yesterday in Ufa.
“The main topic of the forum is very ambitious. Will our farmers be able to become the leaders of the world agricultural market? We will discuss this at a plenary session together with our honored guests — representatives of Austria, the Czech Republic, and Germany. We are very pleased that they have responded to our invitation, ”noted the Interim Deputy Prime Minister — Minister of Agriculture of Bashkortostan Ilshat Fazrakhmanov at the opening of the exhibition.
