Want a Place to Invest or Put Your Money? Try Russian Agriculture…

Russia will double its grain exports to 40 million tons a year by 2020, President Vladimir Putin said at the APEC summit in Vladivostok on Friday. “We project that our country will be producing 120 million-125 million tons of grain a year by 2020, which will increase our export capacity to 30 million-35 million tons, and even up to 40 million tons,” Putin said…

Like I have been saying, The Russian government is pouring tons of money into the agriculture of Russia and the West world agriculture businesses are flocking silently to ride the wave…

I am watching as I travel Russia, the warehouses and agricultural equipment factories being built. I am watching considerable sections of old fields being put back into production. I just watched the grain being harvested and lets talk about something old but new that is expanding by the million’s of acres in Russia…

Sveta and I just came back from the village and we simply were stunned by the corn fields that were being harvested. Now I know that in America, you are use to corn, but in Russia corn has not been prominent in the fields, that I travel around, not at all. But this year as we drove, the fields of corn were being harvested, and these fields had no end in the horizon and new combines and tractors were everywhere…

The little villages with there grain storage ares were overflowing with grain and the corn being brought in was in the hundreds of trucks, waiting to dump their loads at the main grain bins…

If I had desired, I could have stopped the car and filled as many sacks with corn silage as I could, because it was falling off the trucks by the tons as they hurried on down the roads trying to get the crops in. For awhile Sveta and I drove on these land mined destroyed Russian roads and I drove to the crunching of corn silage under the tires… 🙂

Now I am much more in tune with agriculture, than Sveta and while she could see what was happening, her city mind then took over and corn became less important. Now my mind kept turning as I took all that I could see in. In fact Sveta and I took a very different way home and saw a better picture on the grain harvest in Russia…

Bet you do not hear about fields of corn, as far as the eye can see in Russia, in the news?

Nuff said except, “We have grain in Russia and lots of it!”

Now all this rambling needs to go back to the beginning of the article…

Russia is increasing production in its agriculture! I have seen chicken farms popping up all over, I see cattle farms popping up, I see farm equipment being transported constantly to farms and I see 5 to 6 times the fields being plowed and planted than there was 6 years ago when I first started to travel Russia…

This is all conjunction to the duos in charge of Russia. Putin and Medvedev made it clear that Russia is going to work hard at helping to feed the world and Putin’s last statement shown above, is showing that…

I think about a few readers of mine, who are farmers and they really want to live in Russia. Well now is the time and the future is big in agriculture in Russia. Russia has the land and Russia is spending the money. I am reading about older Americans everyday and how they are coming to Russia and starting a farm, a farm like they grew up on and their families owned – once upon a time in America…
