The Ministry of Agriculture suggests reducing the number of regions receiving subsidies for grain transportation by rail from 13 to 5. As informed, the application of such support measure is proposed to be extended until June 30, 2019, which will require additional RUB 1.4 billion this year, reports UkrAgroConsult.

In the draft resolution Russian Ministry of Agriculture suggests extending subsidies until June 30, 2019. At the same time, in the next season, eight regions of Central and Volga federal districts are expected to be excluded from the benefit list and only Orenburg, Kurgan, Novosibirsk and Omsk regions will remain there.

For the first two regions export limits are set at 150 KMT and 130 KMT of grain, for Novosibirsk region – 294 KMT, for Omsk region – 350 KMT. Moreover, in the new season, preferential transportation can be extended to Krasnoyarsky Krai, from which 100 KMT of grain can be delivered with subsidies.
