Thanks to state support for subsidizing agricultural machinery in 2017, many agricultural enterprises were able to replenish their fleet with modern models of agricultural machinery.
Since the implementation of the agricultural machinery subsidizing program for 5 years, the volume of state support has exceeded 34 billion rubles. (by Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 1432).
Agricultural enterprises purchase agricultural machinery from producers at a discount of 15% (up to 20% in some regions), the difference to agricultural engineering plants is compensated at the expense of the federal budget.
The dynamics of the subsidy program has been observed since the first year of its operation: in 2013, agricultural enterprises replenished the park by 765 units. equipment, in 2014 - 3 thousand units, in 2015 - 6,4 thousand units, in 2016 - 17,4 thousand units. In 2017, the number of agricultural machinery acquired by farmers increased by another 52% to 26,4 thousand units. In comparison with the first year of the program, the number of subsidized agricultural machinery in 2017 increased by 34,5 times.
Thanks to the attractive conditions of the subsidy program, farmers give priority to domestic producers of agricultural machinery. As a result, the share of Russian agricultural machinery in the domestic market in 2017 increased compared to 2015 from 40% to 56%.
In 2018, 10 billion rubles are provided for the program for subsidizing agricultural equipment manufacturers. State support will partially offset the retirement of old equipment and increase the pace of rearmament of farmers, which is especially important in anticipation of the sowing campaign.
