The Ministry of Agriculture may revise plans for the export of grain this season due to a slowdown in harvesting. This is stated in the message in the telegram channel of the ministry.
As noted by the Ministry of Agriculture, the volume of harvested grain at the moment is noticeably less than a year ago. In addition, in the current situation, the load on agricultural equipment has significantly increased, and for foreign equipment there are difficulties with the supply of components.
“In aggregate, all this creates risks in terms of achieving the grain harvest of 130 million tons. Of course, we will fully provide our market, there will be no problems with this. However, if the planned volumes are not achieved, we will have to revise our export plans of 50 million tons. And this may have a negative impact on the world grain market,” said Russian Minister of Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev, whose words are quoted in the message.
