BSR Russia (Mar. 11, 2013) | Grain production was a key sector of agriculture in pre-revolutionary Russia. Later, the fertility of the land was undermined by civil wars and the First World War, after which the Soviet leadership made a significant effort to achieve the same level of harvest. Today, the grain industry leaders complain about the deteriorating situation on the grain market. They are disappointed by lack of support from the government, unwillingness of investors to invest in the agricultural sector and significant aging of agricultural machinery. In addition to other problems in the European territory of Russia most suitable for the agricultural industry, in recent years there has been a significant change in climate. The last fifteen years have been the driest in the recent history of Russia.
