If you look at the agricultural production index in recent years, 2010 was the most disastrous. The first reason is drought. In 2011 managed to overcome the crisis and significantly break ahead - 130%.
In 2012 positive dynamics continued - almost 111%, in 2013 - again losses - 94%. In 2014 production increased, the index rose to 104,4%, in 2015 - up to 102,2%, in 2016 reduction was again recorded - 95,7%.
In 2017 the index continued to decline - 93,2% (17th place among the regions of the Central Federal District). Last year, in particular, the low yield of potatoes, fodder and grain crops, vegetables, as well as the consequences of the epidemic of African swine fever, foot and mouth disease, etc., led to this result.
But it seems that a series of unfavorable coincidences is reaching the limit. In 2018, the agricultural production index stopped falling. One of the main growth points was an excellent potato crop. Compared to 2017, it was collected by a quarter (126%) in agricultural organizations, and by a third (133%) in households.
