The Underline of Russia is Pointing at Increase in Food Production…

As Sveta and I travel to the village of ours in Russia. I always talk with Sveta about the humongous increase in agriculture that I see going on in Russia. It has been a powerful driven force over the 5 years that I have been traveling Russia…

MOSCOW, September 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russia may not only satisfy fully its own demand for food, but it may become the world’s leading supplier, Chairman of Russia’s State Duma Boris Gryzlov told the United Russia Party’s congress on Friday. “Russia has a territory, where we may use agricultural lands to provide food, as experts say, for 20 percent of the world population,” Gryzlov said. “We may not only satisfy ourselves, but we may be major suppliers of food in the world.”

That got me thinking and the last village trip a few weeks ago, presented me with no less of a stipulation that enforced my thinking’s. We saw hundreds of new John Deere tractors being delivered to farms all over the place. I was just stunned at the millions and millions of dollars in tractors that I saw everywhere. Then we started to see the fields with green John Deere tractors plowing the fields for Winter wheat. Then I discovered…

Deere & Company has officially opened in 2010 its new manufacturing and parts distribution facility south of Moscow in Domodedovo. The John Deere Domodedovo facility is the company’s largest single investment to date in Russia. The facility will manufacture agricultural, construction and forestry machinery as well as distribute service parts in the region…

This is part of the revamp of Russian agriculture and smart companies have jumped on the band wagon. There is an agricultural explosion happening in Russia…

We also have watched as thousands and thousands of acres of once dormant land left from the Soviet era, has been plowed and replanted again. I remember that Putin and Medvedev had said that farms are to become a priority and we must become self sufficient to feed us and the world…

We also have been seeing at least 6 new huge chicken farms open up on our trip to the village. I have been studying that the increase in cattle farms is exponentially growing and something that seems trivial but is not, the old decrepit farm buildings are getting new roofs put on…

Now this has been a silent non obtrusive expansion of farm capabilities by Russia. Russia has an incredible amount of farm land that is not being used and I see that fact being exploited back into production. That is smart…

I always think about several good friends in America who are farmers. I think about how they need these guys here in Russia to help with the implementation of increasing the production. One of these guys in particular wishes to live and farm in Russia. The fact is that he could fulfill his dream because Russia is a growing agriculture society, that just might obtain the title of world food producer…

PS: The hints at what I say are for you to see. The chicken wars, grain wars etc. etc. Example: The little store on the corner of our block has nothing but Russian grown chicken and they are proud of that…
