According to the Minister of Agriculture of Primorye Andrei Brons, now serious measures of state support are provided for vegetable producers.
“First, these are direct payments for products sold - from 3 to 5 thousand rubles per ton. Secondly, this is the reimbursement of costs for the technical modernization of production and the purchase of harvesting equipment, which allows avoiding the use of manual labor, ”the minister stressed.
