In recent years, the Russian grain industry came to leadership positions. Five years farmers harvest a consistently high (over a hundred million tons) crops. Grain is practically the only export commodity of mass agricultural production. Foreign exchange revenue annually replenishes the branch budget, although this is more related to the farmers of the South of Russia. Exports from the Siberian regions is also growing: in particular, Altai Krai exports of agricultural products to two hundred million dollars a year. Nevertheless, the contribution of SFO to the grain exports of the country does not exceed one percent.
The reasons for this situation - high rail fares and the lack of infrastructure. Over the past twenty years in the East grain exports for transshipment of bulk cargos has not built a single terminal. In such circumstances to develop a proper supply of grain from Siberia to the countries of South-East Asia impossible. The profitability of export operations is low: the cost of grain production in the best case, constitute thirty percent of the value of transported goods. Almost prohibitive tariffs are established and for transportation to ports in South and East direction. Without state aid, these problems cannot be solved.
Meantime, to improve export potential is possible due to realization of products with high added value for the Altay flour is. For its shipping discounts. Although it is still limited and highly competitive market. The alternative - deep processing of grain or the conversion of grain through meat and dairy products.
Special attention deserves production in Siberia unique niche products. For example, green buckwheat for consumers in Japan and the Chinese barley for brewers.
The allowance to increase sales of grain abroad, the national Union of grain producers sees further diversification of supply, the export of not only cereals, but also maize, cereals and legumes. Another niche is seen in the use of organics. The development of intensive agriculture with high levels of chemicals, including the use of GMO seeds has led to a spike yield and fold increase of competition on the global market for traditional agricultural products. The downside of steel soil degradation, reduction of food quality and safety and reduction of profitability in agribusiness. China over the past decade, lost about five hundred thousand hectares of land suitable for agriculture. Therefore, the development of organic agriculture natural. The world market for organic products over the last ten years has increased more than five times, exceeding one hundred billion dollars (annual growth - at the level of fifteen percent).
Foreign experts note a significant impairment of organic farming in EU countries and the USA. Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan have good chances to become a leader in the production of environmentally friendly products. In the Siberian regions there are obvious potential. World experts in the next five years waiting for the biggest breakthrough is from Siberia.
