The suspension of the subsidy program could lead to a decrease in agricultural machinery production in the second half of 2017, the association said". In the first half of the year, growth was 35% - Russian agricultural machine-building factories produced equipment worth 59,8 billion rubles.
A significant increase was observed in the segment of all-wheel drive tractors - by 45% to 1,37 thousand units, combine harvesters - by 18% to 3,14 thousand units, sprayers - by 23% to 604 units, machines for applying mineral fertilizers - 19% to 294 units Plow production increased by 9% to 1, 45 thousand units, harrows - by 11% to 2,52 thousand units, seeders - by 12% to 5,4 thousand units.
“However, in the second half of the year, the forecast for agricultural machinery production in the association is negative. The suspension of program No. 1432, under which the state subsidizes the factories with 15–20% discounts for farmers, will significantly affect the output of agricultural machinery, ”Rosspetsmash said in a statement. In 2017, 13,7 billion rubles were allocated to equipment manufacturers under the program, however, at the end of June, the Ministry of Industry and Trade notified the manufacturers about the suspension of the program due to the fact that the allocated money was over. Without continuing the program, according to the estimates of Rosspetsmash, by the end of 2017, the growth in agricultural machinery production will decrease by about three times and amount to 12%.
To maintain the pace of production this year, subsidies require another 4,4 billion rubles, and in 2018–2020, 15 billion rubles each. annually. “Failure to provide subsidies under the 1432 program In 2018-2020 will negatively affect the renewal of the park and the production of agricultural machinery in the Russian Federation. In 2018, sales of agricultural machinery will decrease by 30% compared to 2017, tax payments to budgets of all levels will decrease by 32%, the number of employees will decrease by 2 thousand people, the average monthly salary will decrease by 12%, ”predicts“».
The director of the department of agricultural, food and road-building machinery of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Evgeny Korchevoy confirms that there are no additional funds in the budget of the ministry for state support of agricultural machinery. “For 2018–2020, funds were not pledged either through the Ministry of Industry and Trade or through the Ministry of Agriculture,” he said at a meeting of the expert council in the State Duma. He admitted that farmers need modern technology, but "you need to understand where to find funds to extend the program."
From 2013 to 2016, the production of agricultural machinery in Russia in financial terms increased from 35,5 billion rubles. to 88,6 billion rubles., The share of Russian equipment in the domestic market over this period increased from 24% to 54%. As previously said ""Deputy director of the association" ”Denis Maksimkin, last year, 1432 enterprises received a subsidy under the 11,2 program (53 billion rubles were allocated for these purposes), on average, the share of subsidies in the volume of production amounted to 12,6%. “At the same time, there are enterprises in which the share of subsidies exceeds 20% - for example,“ Agrocenter ”in Altai Territory,“ Kanmash-Agro ”in Chuvashia, Altai Agricultural Machine-Building Plant. The group " " or this share was slightly higher than 15%, for Eurotehnika - a little over 11%, ”said Maksimkin. Moreover, according to him, the 1432 program is "one of the most effective mechanisms of state support implemented in the country." “Each invested ruble gives 1,7 rubles. return receipts to the budgets of all levels. In addition, it gives the animated effect of the development of related industries, ”he said.
In early July, the government approved a strategy for the development of agricultural engineering for the period until 2030. In accordance with the document, the share of Russian-made equipment in the domestic market should increase to 2021% by 80, by 2030 the output of agricultural machinery should increase by three times, and exports by more than 12 times and reach at least 100 billion rubles.
