    Upper House approves ban on GMO production & imports in Russia

    Russia’s Federation Council has approved a bill introducing fines for producing GMO products in Russia or importing them from abroad, with the exception of genetically altered organisms and materials used for expertise and research. Ordinary citizens caught violating the ban will have to pay a fine of between 10,000 and 50,000 rubles ($155 - $770) and companies will be fined between 100,000 and 500,000 rubles ($1550 - $7700).

    Actually GMO has never been favourable in Russian agriculture for years.

    According to official statistics, the share of GMO products in the Russian food industry has declined from 12 percent to just 0.01 percent over the past 10 years, with only 57 registered food products currently containing GMO. The law ordering obligatory state registration of GMO products that could come in contact with the environment will come into force in mid-2017.

    This chart is dubious since there is almost change in the production curves after 2014. There should be a distinct inflection point
    due to sanctions. These curves look like some sort of extrapolations from 2013 based on the trends spanning back 2005. Otherwise
    they are interesting and there is a long-term transition to local production in the last 10 years.

    Russian Agriculture Ministry expects grain export to rise to 50 mln tons by 2030

    The ministry plans to increase grain production to 120 mln tonnes till 2020

    VYRUBOVO (Moscow Region), July 5. /TASS/. Russia may boost grain harvest to 130 mln tonnes and export to 50 mln tonnes by 2030, Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev said at the meeting of the governmental commission on Tuesday.

    "The Agriculture Ministry has worked out a draft project of grain farming development till 2030, which implies grain production surging to 130 mln tonnes, which will push export up to 50 mln tonnes," he said.

    According to Tkachev, grain is one of Russia’s key export articles as it accounts for two thirds of the country’s total exports.

    Also, Russia's agricultural sector on the whole and its food exports, including grain, in particular, may become the backbone of the country's economy similar to the energy sector.

    "Russia can export not only crude oil but it can also become the world’s leading grain exporter," Tkachev said.

    In 2015, Russia’s grain harvest stood at 104.8 mln tonnes. In 2008, a record of 108.1 mln tonnes of grain was harvested.

    Grain harvest

    The minister went on to say that Russia’s grain harvest may go up to 110 mln tonnes in 2016.

    "At the moment this year’s rates are twice as big as last year’s as we’re planning to harvest 106 mln tonnes of grain, or even 108 or 100 mln tonnes in case of good weather," he said, adding that this will allow Russia to keep leading positions on the global wheat export market.

    According to Tkachev, this year a total of 34 mln tonnes of grain have been exported, including 24.6 mln tonnes of wheat.

    The Ministry plans to increase grain production to 120 mln tonnes till 2020.
    Imports of wine materials may be taxed or banned

    Tkachev considers it possible to introduce taxes or ban imports of wine materials.

    "We’re currently preparing a draft decree aimed at increasing the duty on the one hand and on the other hand at sending a signal to investors that we’re going to close the market of imported wine materials in Russia within 5-7 years. For investors this will be an impetus for using home-produced materials for wine production," Tkachev said.

    Meat production

    The ministry said it expects meat production to rise by 10.8% by 2020 compared with 2015 to 14.9 mln tonnes.

    "Russian farmers plan to increase meat production to 14.9 mln tonnes within the nearest five years," Deputy Director of the Ministry’s livestock breeding and cattle raising department Kharon Amerkhanov said Tuesday.

    According to Amerkhanov, poultry production will total 6.6 mln tonnes, pork - 4.8 mln tonnes and beef - around 3 mln tonnes by 2020.

    Russia’s milk production will rise by 3.6% compared with 2015 to around 32 mln tonnes by 2020, the ministry said.

    https://www.rt.com/business/352272-russia-lead-wheat-market/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome

    For the second year running, Russia is the world's top wheat producer with exports of 22.5 million metric tons of grain this year, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

    Russia has won contracts to exports 120,000 tons of wheat to Egypt. In the fall, as soon as the new crop is harvested, Russia will start supplying wheat to China, according to the Agriculture Ministry.

    The country’s leading position in the global wheat market is because of its low-price strategy which has increased its market share.

    The weakened national currency, favorable weather conditions as well as more investment has pushed forward Russian agriculture and unseated the US as the world’s biggest wheat exporter.

    Egypt to buy 60,000 tons of Russian wheat

    And... Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

    After a long break Egypt returned to purchasing wheat from the global market in mid-July. French, Canadian, Polish, US wheat shipments were rejected due to an ergot content over the internationally agreed level.

    Good news. But they just had to insert the ludicrous nonsense about hard currency at the end. F*ck off Bloomberg. The ruble is a fully floating
    currency and is as hard as the US dollar.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow first introduced a ban on certain food imports in August 2014 in response to economic sanctions imposed by the United States, the European Union and their allies over Moscow's alleged participation in Ukraine crisis.

    In late June, the European Union extended the sanctions imposed against Russia. Moscow, in turn, prolonged the food embargo. "The consumer is interested in getting good-quality products at the least possible price, so we need to create competitive conditions. So we will be dragging out as long as possible," Putin said at an All-Russia People's Front forum.

    https://www.rt.com/business/367810-russia-syria-free-trade-deal/

    Russia - Syria creates green corridor.

    This is great for both sides since Russia needs to reduce overall inflation on foods, especially on foods that grow well in Syria, while Syrians need money. This creates a good prospect for business in agriculture between the two. Also some hints to other deals in form of energy (oil/gas) and transportation. There is also a $1 billion dollar previous contract for reconstruction in Syria
