Russia needs more agricultural machinery and tractor drivers - the price of the matter.
Agriculture in Russia is developing rapidly. In 2018, the volume of domestic agricultural exports was a record, exceeding $ 25 billion. According to the forecasts of the Ministry of Agriculture, record harvests are also expected in 2019.
Russian farmers support the trend - in the country over the year the demand for tractor drivers (21,5%) and agricultural machinery (9,1%), without which modern farming is difficult to imagine, has grown, analysts at the popular Avito classified ads website calculated.
Agriculture is developing, and farmers need more and more workers: the demand for tractor drivers, the most massive profession in the industry, has grown over the year throughout the country by 21,5%. Despite this, the competition for one workplace is quite high, especially in the Nizhny Novgorod and Irkutsk regions.
The largest number of vacancies is posted in the most important agricultural center of Russia - Krasnodar Territory. In this region, the demand for tractor drivers has grown more than throughout the country - by 27,4%.
Along with the number of offers, the amount of payment for tractor drivers has grown.
Over the year, the average salary of such specialists increased by 7,2% and now amounts to 38 rubles per month.
The highest level of payment is offered to tractor drivers in the Irkutsk Region (76 rubles) and the Krasnoyarsk Territory (000 rubles), where it is more difficult to farm because of the harsher climate.
At the same time, employers of the Altai Territory and Omsk Region, one of the most highly developed agricultural regions of Siberia, are ready to pay only 28 and 000 rubles a month to tractor mechanics, respectively.
Together with hiring workers, Russian farmers began to equip their farms with agricultural machinery 9,1% more than a year earlier.
The demand for tractors, combines, threshers and other machines has grown in almost all the largest cities and most strongly in the Vladimir region and Krasnoyarsk Territory - almost one and a half times.
Residents of the Belgorod region became less interested in agricultural machinery than anyone else, but even here the decrease in demand was only 7,6%.
Simultaneously with the demand, the supply of equipment also increased, which they began to sell 14,2% more often. Moreover, the number of announcements increased in all 23 regions under consideration: from 6,6% in the Belgorod region to 44,6% in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.
