Alexei Sitnikov will talk about the challenges faced by greenhouse producers, the existence of a request for Russian vegetables from abroad and food security of the Russian greenhouse vegetables.
"Undoubtedly this is a difficult time for the Russian farmers. In the past year, the level of deliveries abroad decreased significantly, and some experts even began to say that about exporting to say pointless – they say, we would have his country vegetables to provide. I think this is a wrong approach and hope to convince my colleagues in this" - said Alexey Sitnikov.
Indeed, compared to 2017, in the past year has seen a strong decline in the export of Russian greenhouse vegetables. This is largely due to cuts in state support and an increase in the VAT rate to 20%. The greenhouse owners do not have enough resources to update outdated greenhouses and maintaining the same production volume, which correspondingly decreases and exports.
According to Alexei Sitnikov, under the circumstances, after 5 years the greenhouse area may be reduced to 300 hectares, and production of greenhouse products will be reduced to 70-100 thousand tons per year.
