Russia's Agricultural Industry: Highlights from 2018 and Trends for 2019 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Agricultural Industry in Russia: Highlights from 2018 and Trends for 2019" report has been added to's offering.

Russia's agricultural industry faces a period of fast-paced growth. The food embargo, ruble devaluation and strong government support spurred business development in the farming and food industry.

Russian manufacturers continue ramping up own production, both in their usual and in new categories, taking niches previously occupied by imports. In addition, the weak ruble makes Russian goods lucrative and competitive in foreign markets, opening up new opportunities for domestic enterprises.

Besides traditional export categories, such as grain and sunflower oil, domestic producers have embarked on sugar and poultry exports. Russian farms have increased their share in the export of grains in the global market in 2017 beating out the United States and coming out on top in the world in terms of volume.

The volume of agricultural production nudged down 0.6% in 2018 year-on-year. According to preliminary figures, Russia's gross harvest amounted to 112.9 million tons of grain (weight after refinement) in 2018 (-16.7% year-on-year). A steep drop in the crops was due to the bad weather and tough targets (last season's crops hit an all-time high).

As of the end of December 2018, all country's farms, according to preliminary data, had 18.1 million cattle (-0.8% year-on-year), of which 7.9 million were cows (-0.4%), 23.7 million - pigs (+2.9%), 22.9 million - sheep and goats (-6.1%).
