"There is a trend of further growth of prices for raw milk. Weekly price is increasing by 30-40 kopecks. There is an understanding in working with our refiners and traders that this process will continue in the future," - said the Minister of agriculture of the Novosibirsk region Evgeny Leshchenko.
Earlier in the regional government noted that the cost of milk production in average for the region is about 17.8 rubles. per liter. This figure is industry experts call the "break-even". But prices have not yet returned to the maximum level recorded at the end of 2017. Then the processors purchased milk on average for 23 rubles.per liter.
The problem with the milk prices were discussed at the operative meeting in the government of the Novosibirsk region in may 2018. By the time the purchase price fell to 17.8 RUB the farmers pointed out as causes of the large-scale Russian imports of milk powder from Belarus and distribution of counterfeit.
Positive dynamics is observed on the grain market. According to the regional Ministry of agriculture, last week recorded an increase in prices of all kinds of grain. For example, the third class wheat farms can sell at 8.2 thousand rubles per ton, the cost of lower quality grain is more than 7 thousand RUB.
"The corresponding period last year, sales of grain prices above from 27% to 40% depending on the culture," said Yevhen Leshchenko.
To date, the harvest in the region is collected on 93% of the acreage. Gross exceeded 2.6 million tons In some areas significantly lagging behind the average pace. So, in Ust-Tarkskogo the neighborhood is made up only 74% of the area of grain, in the Tatar – 77%, in Chistoozernoe, Chanovskiy and Kyshtovsky districts threshed less than 85% of wheat. According to the regional Ministry of agriculture, in these areas there is a real risk that the harvest in full to clean up before winter will not have time.
