Chuvashia will reimburse 30% of the cost of purchasing equipment for deep processing of milk, meat, potatoes and vegetables. This decision was made today at a regular meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers.
According to the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Chuvash Republic Alina Semenova, changes are being made to the rules for granting subsidies from the republican budget to reimburse part of the costs of technical and technological modernization of agricultural production, which provide for the expansion of the list of subsidized machinery and equipment to accelerate the pace of renewal of the machine and tractor fleet by eight items.
“Also, to support the development of agricultural processing organizations, it is envisaged to reimburse 30% of the cost of purchasing technological equipment for deep processing of milk, meat, fruits and vegetables and potatoes,” said Alina Vitalievna.
According to the Deputy Minister, reimbursement of costs for the purchase of equipment today is one of the most popular measures of state support. In 2020, 163 agricultural producers took advantage of the opportunity to upgrade their equipment at a preferential rate, which made it possible to increase the energy supply in the Chuvash Republic as a whole to 118 hp. per 100 hectares.
Taking into account the proposed changes, over 2021 agricultural producers will be able to receive state support in 140. The republic's budget provides for this for 548 million rubles.
