For the last two years 16,4 billion roubles were directed from the federal budget for acquisition of chemicalization means. State support measures on preservation and restoration of agricultural land fertility will be continued, the Ministry of Agriculture of Bashkiria informed.

In connection with the Russia's joining the World Trade Organization new directions of agricultural producers support are defined in the State program of agriculture development. Among them there are measures stimulating the restoration of agricultural land fertility. The sizes of grants will be defined at the rate per 1 hectare of the area calculated on different parametres. In 2013 it is planned to direct more than 20 billion roubles for these purposes, including from the federal budget – 15,2 billion, from the budget of subjects of the Russian Federation — 5,3 billion. As the federal agrarian department informs, the given support will be rendered only to effective farmers to supply them with necessary means increasing land fertility.

The Ministry of Agriculture of Russia develops the procedure of such subsidies granting.
