Fair Shows Achievements and Problems

Krasnodar, 27 September – Yug Times. Over 1,000 farmers were presenting their products at the traditional Kuban Fair held in Krasnodar on September 20-24. At the end of the event, both the farmers and the officials looked quite happy. The former sold hundreds of tons of agricultural products. The latter got another chance to note the success of the policy of imports substitution. At the same time, the fair uncovered a series of problems experienced by the region’s agricultural complex.

Opening the fair, Kuban Governor Veniamin Kondratiev expressed belief that domestic products would ultimately oust imported food from our tables.

Regional Minister for Agriculture and Processing Industry Fedor Dereka noted a significant contribution of Kuban farmers in the development of crop production. He also expressed hope that local entrepreneurs would take a more active part in the production of milk and meat.

According to Mr. Dereka, nearly 30% of the region’s planted area is currently owned by farmers. Mostly the farmers are engaged in the production of cereal crops. Because of that, the issue of dairy and meat industry, for which crop producers supply crops, is becoming of an ever greater importance.

On the whole, development of stockbreeding is reportedly lagging behind the development of the agro-industrial complex in whole. Minister mentioned additional measures that would be taken to stimulate the development of the industry.


Viticulture is also facing difficulties. The main issue is lack of financing. The industry needs money, but the banks are offering only ‘short’ credits while vineyards start giving yield only 5 to 7 years after the grapevines were planted.

Sergei Dyrdin, chairman of the Association of Amateur Viticulturists from Adler confirmed that it is quite troublesome to do viticulture, but cooperation and new forms of business may help it.
