The harvesting campaign in Russia because of the hot weather started in two or three weeks before, but grain producers believe the harvest will be less than in 2011, but more than last year. In Siberia, the cleaning can be complicated by bad weather.
As the press service of the National Union of grain producers (NHA), the harvest-2013 is expected to reach 75-80 million tons. According to the President of the organization Pavel skurihina, the circumstances do not allow to expect a record grain harvest.
First and foremost, among the negative factors Skurikhin related weather conditions. State of emergency declared in several regions of the South and North of the Volga, which predicts a shortage of grain. In the regions of the Central Federal district marked rainy weather, which will also adjust the timing of the harvest and total yield. Of concern is the situation in Siberia. Given the fact that the crop in the main grain-producing regions of the Siberian Federal district was late, and now there are sudden fluctuations in temperature, there is an assumption that cleaning will take place in adverse weather conditions. According to the forecast NHS, to harvesting wheat in Siberia will start only at the beginning of September.
The second reason is technological. "The timing of harvesting is an average of 30 days at regulatory and science-based 10 days. And this is the daily loss to 1 % of the harvest, said Skurikhin. — The main problem is lack of technology. The load on a single processor this year is higher than last year and continues to grow. Disposal of obsolete equipment exceeds the amount of purchase the new."
Also among the adverse circumstances Skurihin has noted large losses in the process of transportation, handling and storage. "The lack of a sufficient number of grain dryers at farms, outdoor storage conditions, with projected wet weather during harvesting will adversely affect the volume of production", — said the head of the NHS.
Also, according to skurihina, reason to expect a significant reduction in the cost of grain this season. The current decline in prices associated with the arrival on the market of grain, President of the NHS explained the acute shortage of working capital from farmers and urged the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation to adjust the intervention policy to stop sales of grain from intervention Fund and to consider early procurement.
