In the Amur region set a record for the number of harvested soybeans

Today the harvest of this crop amounted to 1 million 47 thousand tons. However, the harvesting of soybeans is still going on in a number of farms in the Amur Region, the press service of the Government of the Amur Region reported.

The reason for this harvest was favorable weather, the honest work of the Amur agrarians, as well as financial assistance from the Russian Federation as a region affected by the disaster (about four billion rubles were allocated for the needs of the Amur agricultural sector).

As the Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Amur Region, Vladislav Bakumenko, problems with the sale of soybeans should not arise. About two hundred thousand tons will be purchased by Irkutsk enterprises, about three hundred thousand tons will be processed into butter and meal by local enterprises. About a hundred thousand tons of soybeans will go to seeds for planting next year. More than four hundred thousand tons are planned to be sold to the central regions of Russia and abroad.

“Today we are looking abroad for the most favorable conditions for the sale of our products. Of course, the main buyer of Amur soybeans is China. However, we are doing serious work with Japanese enterprises. They have very serious product requirements. I believe that we will be able to fulfill them and create a joint venture that will allow us to sell soybeans on the Japanese market, ”said Vladislav Bakumenko.

Now the price of soybeans in the domestic market is 15 thousand rubles per ton. However, as experts note, traditionally for a certain period of time the cost of soybean increases. Therefore, Amur farmers are still trying to keep their products.

At the reached, the Amur agricultural enterprises are not going to stop. In the Amur region, soybean crops will increase. It is also planned to build storage facilities for grain and further work aimed at increasing the volume of soybean processing.

Vladislav Bakumenko noted that the Government of the Amur Region does not intend to stop supporting agricultural enterprises, despite the tension of the budget for 2015 year.
