Agrarians of the Chelyabinsk region continue to receive active support from the regional government. For example, most of the finance goes to seed production. This allows you to purchase high-quality seeds and get a good harvest in the future. A new procedure for subsidizing seed production was adopted today, September 20, at a government meeting.
Among the significant innovations of the order adopted today is the strict observance of the terms of co-financing by the federal and regional budgets. This means that the region can pay subsidies for seed production to agricultural enterprises only within its limit, due to the percentage of budget funds: in 2017, state support from the federal budget should be 95%, from the regional budget - 5% of the total amount of subsidies, commented in a press Governor’s service.
Now the amount of support will be calculated on hectares of sown area, which is sown with elite seeds. Only they will be allocated subsidies. Moreover, its size will not be able to exceed 99% of the actual costs. Note that for effective varietal renewal, 10% of 300 thousand tons of sown seeds must be elite. In 2017, 3,9 thousand tons of elite grains were purchased and they planted 20 thousand hectares of land. 38,5 million rubles are planned to be allocated to purchase more elite seeds.
