– The Rostov region has the largest fleet of agricultural machinery in Russia, while the Don farms are the first in the country in terms of the pace of purchases of agricultural machinery. In 2022, agricultural enterprises purchased about 4 thousand units – this is a good investment in the future. The renovation of Don equipment is subsidized under the regional program. This year, the amount of state support for these purposes in the amount of more than half a billion rubles has been preserved, – noted Governor of the Rostov region Vasily Golubev.
– For many years, before the start of spring field work, agricultural producers, suppliers of equipment, spare parts, mineral fertilizers, as well as scientists have been meeting here to discuss problematic issues of the work of the agro-industrial complex and crop production this year, – said at the opening of the exhibition Deputy Chairman of the Legislative Assembly of the Rostov Region – Chairman of the Committee on Agrarian Policy, Nature Management, Land Relations and Cossack Affairs Vyacheslav Vasilenko.
