    We need for V7 to come and take a poop on Russia.

    It should be clear by now that Russia's wheat exports are part of a trend and not one off weather related events.

    Craziest part is that they are just warming up.

    I've been following agriculture stuff on sdelanounas and if they keep this pace things will get insane in a decade, give or take.

    Ironic that you brought up the 'weather-related events' because their was a cold-snap in the fall that actually limited produce cultivation, which means had it not happened total tonnage would of been much greater.

    Now Russia just needs to push their own Coca-Cola or Nestle corporation and turn the raw foods/grains into end products and sell those worldwide. Will bring in a ton more money.

    China has completely stopped buying Canadian canola products, this is a perfect opportunity for Russia to ramp up their canola production and seize this new potential market share.

    Canola is heat treated rape seed oil. China and everyone else would be better off without this trans-fat shit. If you want a vegetable oil,
    then use sunflower oil. But if you want the best vegetable oil, then use coconut butter. It is a mono-saturate that humans have evolved with
    as a staple when they migrated out of Africa along the coast the Middle East and Europe and to South Asia and ultimately polynesia.

    Their expertise in ramping up the production of food is valuable... they should share such information with countries like Zimbabwe and Venezuela, which due to different circumstances (land redistribution and oil based economy suddenly hit by sanctions respectively) have to import food, but are not in a position to pay for a lot of it...

    But if you want the best vegetable oil, then use coconut butter.

    There you go... Russian agriculture expertise to set up coconut plantations and processing plants to make coconut butter for China and Russia...

    Made in Venezuela means western countries wont be afraid of buying it like they would if it said Made in Russia... most ignorant westerners would immediately think it meant Made in Chernobyl...

    There is major flooding, once in a couple of generations event, across parts of the US, particularly the grain and soy growing areas.

    This could have a very positive effect for Russia on the price of its exports this year.

    The issues of agriculture in difficult climates is one that Russia could export too... producing food in extreme cold using glass houses to contain heat and moisture, could be applied in deserts or places where the temperature is not conducive to rapid crop growth.

    In the 5-6 degree C temperatures in the South Island of New Zealand crops obviously wont grow that well in winter, but in summer in the mid 20s C they grow fine, but having green house structures... perhaps built vertically to maximise internal volume... foods could be grown all year round, and with full temperature control you can grow fruits and vegetables that would not normally grow naturally...

    In hot dry places like Australia you might trade clear glass with opaque solar panels that generate energy for cooling fans at peak temperatures, but also keep moisture levels high for good growth rates... double glazed windows to retain heat during cold nights but also to stop it getting too hot during the day with solar panels that deploy to block light getting in to the glasshouse during the day but also collect energy from the sun. Wind power would also be a useful balance as it would be portable and also potentially generate energy at night when solar panels are not generating power.

    The idea being self sufficiency so isolated places can be productive without needing to connect them to the local grid... obviously a workforce will create a new local community etc etc.

    Rail, road, and air travel connections all make things better and easier.

    Russia ready to fill China’s food gap left by US in trade war fallout


    Russia’s leading meat producer has said it is ready to fill the supply gap left by the US as the world’s most populous market struggles with the double blow of a devastating swine fever epidemic and a protracted trade war.

    Cherkizovo Group, the largest meat producer in Russia, began shipping poultry products to China last month, and is now looking forward to selling pork and soybeans there, according to CEO Sergey Mikhailov, in an interview with the South China Morning Post on Thursday.

    Hopes that China would buy more pork, soybean and other protein products from the US were dashed last month after trade negotiations with the Trump administration fell apart. Beijing included pork and chicken on a list of retaliatory tariffs on US$60 billion worth of American products in May and China has also reportedly suspended its soybean imports from the US since then.

    As a starting point, Mikhailov said his company expected to ship around 1,000 to 1,500 tonnes of poultry products, mostly chicken feet, wings and drumsticks, to the Chinese market next month, quickly rising to 2,000 to 3,000 tonnes per month.

    “We estimate the potential for Russian poultry exports to China may be around 200,000 tonnes a year, and Cherkizovo alone is targeting to reach 40,000 tonnes of poultry products to China next year,” Mikhailov said, on the sidelines of the St Petersburg International Economic Forum.

    As the world’s biggest producer and consumer of pork, China has been turning to other types of protein, both locally produced and imported, after a devastating outbreak of African swine fever which began in August last year.

    China and Russia have been seeking to increase trade in agricultural products over the past few years. Last year, trade between the two countries in agricultural products and food rose by nearly 30 per cent, to US$5.23 billion – still less than 5 per cent of their overall trade in 2018, which reached to a milestone of US$108 billion.

    Agriculture cooperation has been high on the bilateral agenda as Beijing and Moscow seek to further cement their already close ties in the face of their strained relationships with the US.

    In a joint statement released on Wednesday, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin pledged to “expand trade of good quality agricultural products and food”. Companies from the two countries were also encouraged to push forward with cooperation in soybean supply chains, the statement said.

    Mikhailov said Cherkizovo was one of 30 Russian companies recently allowed to directly supply poultry products to China, and was ready to fill the gap in the Chinese market “not just for short term opportunities but also long-term relationships”.

    “Potentially, we’ll be able to build some future partnerships to further process some of our products, maybe in China, to make value-added products,” he said.

    So far, Russia remains a small exporter in both pork and soybeans, but Mikhailov said the country’s the vast land and water reserves, as well as a close relationship with China, would make Russia a reliable candidate supplier to meet China’s demand, adding that he expected their cooperation to thrive in the long term.

    “Nothing is short term in the pork business as it takes two years to build the farms, one year to breed the pigs and so three years in production, and to have a normal payback then you must work for another five to 10 years,” he said.

    “For the pork industry, you must have a long-term mission and long-term commitment from both sides. I think Russia could play some role in helping China to close the gap in its shortage of pork production,” he said.

    Though Cherkizovo’s soybean production is small – about 40,000 tonnes a year – soybean exports are also on the agenda for the company. “It is something we can look at in the future,” he said.
    China also began importing dairy products in May and, Mikhailov said, the two governments had been in talks over pork exports too, though sanitary and phytosanitary (measures for the control of plant diseases) requirements were complicated and sometimes arbitrary.

    To date, the US, Brazil and Argentina have been China’s major soybean suppliers, with Russia providing only a small fraction of the total, while countries like Germany, Canada, Brazil, Spain and the Netherlands are the top pork exporters to China.

    This is good for Russia and China... I hope the Russians decide to go with Chinese companies for their high speed train network as the Chinese companies have the experience and don't have a chip on their shoulder or strings pulled by Washington like Germany does. Equally going with Huawei 5g network technology will give Russia an edge over western countries reticient to move forward with 5g technology because it is Chinese and not American...

    Russia has plenty of growth potential in agriculture including process products as well as raw materials...

    Does anyone else suspect the CIA of perhaps introducing the African Swine flu to China... you know... like accidentaly on purpose?

    Perhaps Russian farmers should keep an eye out for drones...

    The US has been using biological warfare for decades. It tried to rape Cuba by destroying its agriculture, it does it to North Korea and is to blame for
    the food shortages there and it did it to the USSR (e.g. the USA introduced the Colorado potato beetle). The probability that the swine flu is a US
    operation is basically 100%. The yanquis only know how to play dirty. You can see their unhinged paranoia about Russian meddling in their worthless
    one party state elections since they have been trying to foist a colour revolution on Russia for two decades.

    The Chinese are better off buying Russian products since they will not be full of antibiotics and steroids like the crap from the USA.

    In ten years time there wont be very much competition for clean healthy non GMO contaminated food producers... most of the major international trade deals included options for big companies to sue countries that had laws that limited or effected their profit margins... so for instance a ban on GMOs could lead to your country being sued by Monsanto for banning their products from your market... over time that is just going to lead to countries allowing GMOs into their markets especially as more and more processed food will include such products anyway...

    Russia saying no to the big companies of the west will make a real difference very soon... and they should be able to make serious profits from that in the future.

    We need for V7 to come and take a poop on Russia.

    It should be clear by now that Russia's wheat exports are part of a trend and not one off weather related events.


    https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/market-insights/latest-news/agriculture/061219-usda-lifts-russia-ukraine-wheat-production-estimate-for-2019-20-by-2-mil-mt

    New Delhi — The US Department of Agriculture raised the estimates for wheat production from Russia and Ukraine, major exporters from the Black Sea region, by 2 million mt for 2019-20, and exports from the two countries by 1.5 million mt, prompted by favorable weather conditions.
    Wheat production in Russia for 2019-20 is now pegged at 78 million mt, up almost 9% from 2018-19, while that from Ukraine now stands at 30 million mt, up nearly 20% on year, as per the USDA report released on Tuesday.
    Russian exports are now projected at 37 million mt and Ukraine exports are projected at a record 19.5 million mt in 2019-20.

    Wheat crops in the region experienced favorable weather conditions during winter. In the main winter wheat producing regions of Russia -- Southern and North Caucasian districts -- adequate snow and apt temperatures since early December mitigated the risk of frost damage and saw good moisture reserves for crops, as per analysts.

    Meanwhile, beginning stocks in the US for 2019-20 were down 680,400 mt on increased 2018-19 exports, the USDA said. The country's total wheat production for 2019-20 is now forecast at 51.8 million mt, up 157,853 mt from the May forecast.

    Estimates for US exports in 2019-20 were unchanged at 24.5 million mt, while the feed and residual use forecast was raised by 1.36 million mt to 3.81 million mt on reduced projected corn supplies.

    EU wheat exports' projection for 2019-20 was cut by 500,000 mt from the May estimate to 26.50 million mt amid greater competition from Black Sea origins.

    Estimates for global wheat production in 2019-20 were revised to 780.83 million mt from 777.49 million mt projected in May.

    Projected imports for Southeast Asia -- among the major importers of wheat -- were raised to 28.30 million mt from 27.90 million mt estimated in May.

    Russian unmanned harvester sets a record for harvesting

    Russian Agriculture News - Page 10 A3VyZ2Fub2JsLnJ1L3NpdGVzL2RlZmF1bHQvZmlsZXMvc3R5bGVzL2NvbG9yYm94L3B1YmxpYy9maWVsZF9nYWxsZXJ5LzI4MjQyL21nMzE2Ny5KUEc_X19pZD0xMjQ5NDQmaXRvaz1NdUxqd01qdg==

     © kurganobl.ru




    A few days ago in the Kurgan region presented a “smart” unmanned combine harvester from Cognitive Technologies - a Russian software developer. In automatic mode, the machine was able to harvest wheat on an area of ​​more than 110 hectares. As a result, 67 centners were collected from each hectare - this is a record result.
    The Cognitive Agro Pilot unmanned agricultural vehicle management system is called "Agrodroid." It is designed to quickly connect to various agricultural vehicles - combines, tractors, sprayers , etc. , includes a video camera, monitor and a set of connecting cables. The basis of the Cognitive Agro Pilot system is a convolutional neural network of deep learning modified for agricultural tasks.
    Experts believe that the “smart” technique will reduce grain losses during harvesting by 30-40%.


    At the wheel of the drone, a combine operator is still sitting, but he does not take any part in controlling the movement of equipment. The specialist only controls the technological process of harvesting, that is, selects the angle of the header, adjusts the process of threshing, cleaning the grain, etc.
    It is reported that an unmanned combine harvester does not allow passes during movement, as is the case with human machine operators.

     © 3dnews.ru


    The advantage of this autopilot is the ability to work in any weather conditions and in any light condition. In addition, unlike international analogues, which usually use a large set of sensors in their models: laser scanners for moving along the field edge, stereo cameras for working along the swath , etc., Cognitive Technologies autonomous control system allows you to achieve results with a foreign brand with just a video camera. This allows you to reduce the cost by 3-4 times compared with competitors. At the same time, computer vision is used as the basis for managing the company and GPS-navigation complex is not used, which, in particular, allows to identify unexpected obstacles that arise in the way of technology, including people, animals, metal objects and stones, as well as work in areas with weak satellite signal.

     © 3dnews.ru


    It is worth noting that in April 2019, the Government of the Kurgan region and Cognitive Technologies signed a cooperation agreement, one of the main provisions of which is the implementation of projects in the field of "smart agriculture" using unmanned agricultural equipment. The governor of the Kurgan region Vadim Shumkov, after demonstrating the capabilities of the autopilot, emphasized that the authorities would like Cognitive Technologies to become a system from the bridgehead that would be used by many enterprises in the Kurgan region.

    Russia’s antitrust watchdog fears bankruptcy of sugar factories due to decline in prices


    According to official data, there are 75 sugar factories located in 22 regions of the country

    MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) does not rule out the bankruptcy of "a number of sugar factories" due to a drop in the price of sugar. This is according to the documents of the Expert Council of the Committee on the Agro-Industrial Sector under the Federation Council, upper house of parliament, prepared for the meeting on the development of the sugar market in Russia.

    "The FAS is concerned about the situation in the sugar market due to an unprecedented drop in prices for these products in the domestic market due to the accumulation of significant stocks. Despite the fact that in the short term such a drop in prices is beneficial for consumers, in the medium term it may lead to the bankruptcy of a number of sugar factories, and especially those that are not part of vertically integrated agricultural holdings," the regulator says.

    Many of these sugar factories are city-forming enterprises that provide tax revenues to the regional budget. According to FAS forecasts, bankruptcies can lead to a significant change in the balance of power in this market and the emergence of dominant companies.

    According to the FAS, there are 75 sugar factories located in 22 regions of the country.

    According to the Russian Union of Sugar Producers (Soyuzrossakhar), since 2016 the volume of production of beet sugar in Russia exceeds the volume of consumption, which has led to the formation of stocks. In the 2019-2020 season, the volume of beet sugar production in Russia can reach more than 6.7 million tonnes with a consumption of 5.8-5.9 million tonnes, the FAS states.
