Primorye wants to export meat to Asia-Pacific countries

The main topic of the research and production seminar "Field Day-2014", which took place yesterday, September 8, in the Spassky region, was food security, the press service of the regional administration said.

The vice-governor of the Primorsky Territory Sergei Sidorenko, the chairman of the Legislative Assembly Viktor Gorchakov, the director of the regional department of agriculture and food Andrei Bronz and about 230 representatives of the agricultural industry of Primorye, the Amur Region and the Khabarovsk Territory took part in the seminar.

Sergei Sidorenko noted that this year the region has a particularly good harvest. “We received 110 thousand tons of early grain, which is twice as much as last year. The size of arable land has also increased. Soybeans are 45 thousand hectares more than in the past, ”the vice-governor said.

According to Andrey Bronts, in recent years, the most promising export crops in Primorye are soybeans and corn. “Moreover, soybeans with a high protein content are in demand on the market, and now work on the introduction of such varieties is being carried out jointly with Canadian and Russian breeders,” said the director of the department.

In the continuation of the topic of food safety of Primorye, Sergei Sidorenko proposed to hold an annual day in the province of the livestock breeder.

“Today, in our region, little attention is paid to animal husbandry, in particular to pig breeding. But the tasks for the next three years have already been set by the Department of Agriculture and Food of the Primorsky Territory. By the end of the year, 3 pig-breeding complexes will be commissioned in Primorye, and by 2017 our region will be able to move from the region importing meat to the region exporting it to the Asia-Pacific region.
