Russia to increase grain production

Russia expects grain crops of 120-125 million tons over long term

Elena Skrynnik, the Minister of Agriculture of Russia, announced the country would grow up to 120-125 million tons per year of grain in 10-15 years, say reports. This gain will come from the use of additional lands and increased yields.

These volumes will allow Russia to double current exports to 40-50 million tons to Central and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Southern Europe and Africa. It may also spur the modernization of grain storage and transportation in Russia.
