The forum brought together a 1400 enterprises from 70 regions of Russia and 15 foreign countries, including Austria, Belarus, Germany, Denmark, Italy, China, Turkey, Ukraine, etc.
The event, which is held for the 19th time and brings together leading farmers of the country, was opened by the Chairman of the Government Dmitry Medvedev. He congratulated participants and guests on the upcoming Day of worker of agriculture and processing industry. According to tradition, on the eve of Prime Minister handed the state awards and honorary titles to the best workers of the industry.
Guests of the exhibition presented major investment projects in agriculture, projects on development of rural territories, as well as innovative solutions in agriculture. It should be noted that the exhibition is interesting not only to representatives of the business community, and citizens. Huge selection of farm products, national dishes and delicacies from all over the country are waiting for guests daily from 4 to 7 October 2017.
The main event of the show was Agrosnabforum "Leadership of the Russian Ministry of agriculture: how to ensure quality growth", during which participants discussed ways to improve the quality and efficiency of production management and selkhozkooperaciya, modern approaches to marketing and building relationships with the consumer, the prospects for the introduction of new technologies and growth profitability.
The head of the NSA Pavel Skurikhin during communication with journalists outlined the main problems of the industry, such as: excessive debt load APK; need for technical upgrading; neuregulirovannost pricing in the market; isolation regions of the Urals and Siberia; problems of agricultural insurance.
It should be noted that the last issue on agricultural forum "Golden autumn" was the subject of a separate meeting "Agricultural insurance: ways of development". The President of the Board of Trustees the NHS Pavel Skurikhin on the sidelines of the conference made proposals on improving the mechanism of agricultural insurance with state support. He stressed that "this issue is a priority in the National Union of grain producers. We are working with our colleagues from the National Union of agricultural insurers and the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation are working on the improvement of legislation and structural improvements – actively participated in the formation of a unified Association of agricultural insurers and the Institute of independent examination. However, unfortunately, failed to make the agricultural insurance with state support, the really "popular" means (proportion of insured acreage in 2012 was 18.5%, in 2013 – 16.3%, and in 2014 is 17.7%, in 2015 to 10.9% in 2016, according for the half – year 3.5%) and this is for a number of reasons. So, farmers represent the main reason for the low level of insurance is the distrust of the organizations, insuring risks".
Thus, the national Union of grain producers believes that to solve the financial reasons it is necessary, first, to reduce the extremely high level of over-indebtedness of agricultural enterprises of agrarian and industrial complex (more than 2 trillion rubles at the beginning of this year) and to increase their financial sustainability. The clearing balances of agricultural enterprises, combined with the increasing availability of soft loans at 5% will provide an infusion into the industry of necessary investment and will lead to a significant increase in the volume of insurance.
To enhance the credibility of the insurance required to represent the facts of dishonest behavior by insurance companies. You need the insurance community to examine the possibility of increasing competition in the insurance market in the regions. When presented in the subject just one company, this often leads to monopolization with all its consequences, which further reduces the credibility of the agricultural insurance.
The new Millennium opens up opportunities for the use of science and technology. Clearly visible the successes of space monitoring, in this regard, it is important already today to implement a system of space monitoring of the condition of the insured fields with the further use of these data in the mechanism of agricultural insurance. According to the NHS, it will reduce the distrust between subjects of the process and increase the responsibility of the parties.
