In 2017 the farm has processed half of the total acreage of the Omsk region – 1 million 400 thousand hectares, 3.6 million tons of grain harvested last year, 1.5 million tons of KFKH belongs. Farmers harvested 65 thousand tons of potatoes and almost 14 thousand tons of vegetables –more than a third of all the collected on the fields of the Omsk region. In many ways, this success contributed to the reduced ( 5%) short-term loans, and their 65 members of the Union of peasant (farm) holdings in the amount of 349 million rubles. But at today's press conference, the farmers talked more about issues, for example, that do not have enough working capital for the development of that soft loans should not give one year, and at least three, about the price disparity when a ton of grain cost 5 thousand rubles, while the fuel is several times more expensive, which will no doubt affect the financial condition of KFKH, not only small but also large. "This collapse in grain prices has not been since 2006," said a farmer from Sherbakul district Peter Burma. And his colleague Yury Lazarev added that many farmers plan this spring, not to sow crops of savings, and leave the ground beneath the pair.
