"Despite some difficulties with the certification of the pandemic, this process is ongoing," the Minister added.
"In addition, we will develop the market of agricultural products, raw materials and food products with improved environmental characteristics, the so-called "green standard," said Patrushev.
The Minister of agriculture also told about the work on the draft law on seed growing. He noted that the adoption of the Federal law will allow to structure the seed market, which in turn will promote fair and open circulation of seed market.
"We had a number of discussions of the bill with representatives of industry community and the Federal bodies of Executive authority, which decided about the exclusion of provisions relating to the licensing and certification of seeds. After the entry into force of the law information on the seed producers will be introduced in the Federal state information system in the sphere of seed-growing", — said the Minister.
