What led grain interventions from the state Fund
Grain interventions this season is almost over. With the limit of grain and 1.5 million tons sold almost 1.47 million tonnes. This has helped to stabilize grain prices and to keep prices at the final bakery products.
Since the beginning of the intervention to 22 June (inclusive) at the auctions from the intervention Fund of grain were sold totaling a little more for 17.65 billion rubles, told "RG" in the "United grain company" (UGC, the state agent for the administration of the Fund). Nearly 1.28 million tons of the total amount already transferred to the buyers. Now the Fund has about 448,8 thousand tons. The largest amount of the Fund was purchased by the millers - 85%. The most popular grain used in the Siberian Federal district, where purchased approximately 0.5 million tons of grain. Good buy soft wheat of the 3rd and 4th graders, worse - wheat 5-go a class and barley. Crop year not matter, everything is determined by the starting price of the sale, noted in the UGC. In some trading sessions, the maximum sales price reached a market: wheat 3-rd class - 15,5 thousand rubles, wheat of 4 class - 14.6 thousand rubles.
According to the plans of the Ministry of agriculture, grain interventions, coupled with the establishment of export quotas in the amount of 7 million tons was to provide the necessary volume of grain on the domestic market and prevent jump in prices for major crops and prices of final products.
According to the National Union of grain producers, most grain-producing regions of the country have stabilized grain prices and its reversal downwards. Last week they were down in the southern regions and Siberia, stable prices remained in the Volga region and the Urals. A little prices rose only in the Central Federal district.
Mechanisms of intervention and export quotas will work in the new season, but will be modified. By results of meeting the President of Russia 20 may 2020 instead of the intervention Fund is expected to create a stabilization Fund grain, which, according to the Ministry of agriculture, "will provide flour mills with food grain at affordable prices in periods of instability".
And in the mechanism of quotas will make adjustments prohibiting incomplete customs Declaration of the grain. The current rules allow exporters to declare in documents a much larger amount of grain than is available. As a result, some exporters who have grain in stock, no time to apply for a quota documented, which leads to downtime and losses. And those who have time to issue the documents can't buy grain, and had to return a quota.
However, the "Support of Russia" believe that this measure will not solve the problem completely and propose to Supplement it with a phytosanitary certificate. It needs to confirm that the products meet the requirements of the importer.
