"Since February 2013 there has been a gradual decline in grain prices, but with the beginning of entering the market of grain, reduction found a precipitous character. In the region, which has begun to harvest, the price a few days was reduced by 1.5-2 thousand rubles. In some regions of European Russia, the Urals and in Siberia prices have reached a threshold at which the state was authorized to begin purchasing grain interventions.
Today in the grain market there is an upward trend, but the pricing mechanism in the Federal districts is different. So, in the European part of the country and in the Urals the main factor of rising prices is the strong demand for high-quality raw materials from regional consumers.
In the grain market of Siberia the impetus for rising prices gave rise to the state purchasing interventions, before the expiration of which reduction is not expected.
In export-oriented regions of the country the price dynamics differs somewhat from the national trends. Of the main reasons affecting the increase in the value of cereal crops this season, it can be noted the global price of grain, the dollar and activity exporters.
Analyzing the situation with the harvesting campaign in the current season, we can say that collected already today the amount of grain in net weight will be enough for providing both domestic demand and ensure exports at around 15-17 million tons. However, of concern to the quality of the harvested grain.
The fact that the weather conditions in 2013 have greatly complicated Russian grain producers the implementation of the agronomic requirements, not only corrected the initial quantity of the harvest, but also had a negative impact on quality of grain. As a result, grain markets are now a lot of feed grains and reduced the amount of crops high quality characteristics in comparison with previous years. Therefore, the national Union of grain producers forecasts that in the 2013/14 agricultural year will be dominated by upward price trends, especially in relation to high-quality products.
However, if we compare the dynamics of growth of cost of grain, meat and dairy products and bakery products over the past 10 years, we can see that regardless of high volatility in grain prices, the consumer cost of meat and dairy products and bakery products have always been steadily growing and almost never crashes, even when the cost of grain is reduced significantly. So talking about the direct relationship between consumer prices of finished goods from the cost of the raw grain is not necessary."
