Since the commencement of the unified system of agricultural insurance in 2016, the region is not subsidized expenses of farmers for insurance. This year one of the enterprises of the region signed a contract of risk insurance of livestock, but the issue of subsidies is still not solved. But the interest of the Vyatka farmers to insurance issues, which they demonstrated at the workshop, NSA, shows that the region can develop as crop insurance and insurance of farm animals, if will be provided state support".
