Military Review

US media found a new non-military threat. Now - Russian farmers

75
American edition The Wall Street Journal sounds alarm about the next version of "Russian influence" on the United States. If all the last time the alarm was announced in connection with the actions of the “Russian hackers” and in connection with the “interference in the elections”, now the new “attack” for America is Russian farmers.


The WSJ reports that the Russian agricultural industry is growing at a high rate. In particular, there has been an increase in exports of Russian grain. The author of the publication in the American press, James Merson, is concerned that Russian harvests and the output of Russian grain to international markets lead American farmers to cope with this kind of competition.

US media found a new non-military threat. Now - Russian farmers


From the material:
In 2016, Russia ousted the United States from first place in terms of wheat exports. In 2017, the result was repeated. Wheat exports from Russia this year are breaking records. Increased competition in the global grain market leads to a decrease in the welfare of American farmers.


The author also notes that the difficulties of the US adds a trade war with China. The PRC has already raised import duties on North American wheat by a quarter. And this is an "additional chance for Russia."

For your information: 135,4 million tons of grain was harvested in the Russian Federation last year. This is a record for all the past decades. Smaller volumes are expected this year - up to 106 million tons. It is planned to export more than one third of these volumes (up to 38 million tons).

Does the publication in the WSJ mean that in the US they will now also think over the package of sanctions against the Russian agricultural sector?

        We need to look wider and get closer to people:
        USA: 6 crops lost more than 1 million acres of sown area: wheat, oats, herbs, barley, sorghum and cotton. Most of them are wheat: 17 million acres or 6,8 million hectares.
        The increase in grain production was the result of a significant increase in the yield of all crops due to the use of new high-yielding seed varieties, the effective use of mineral fertilizers, selective pesticides to protect grain from pests, a high level of agricultural technology and comprehensive mechanization at all stages of grain production. The productivity of grain fields in the country as a whole over 40 years (1970–2010) has grown almost twofold - from 2 to 31,7 kg / ha.

          Rating "200 largest private companies in Russia - 2018 2018"
          Facts
          Today Rostselmash Group of Companies includes 13 enterprises located at 10 production sites in 4 countries. The company's product line includes more than 150 models and modifications of 24 types of equipment.

          13 Rostselmash enterprises account for 17% of the global agricultural machinery market and 65% of the agricultural machinery manufacturing market in Russia and the CIS.
          According to Dmitry Udras, General Director of New Sodruzhestvo LLC (NS) and one of the main shareholders of the industrial union, over the past 17 years, the Rostselmash group of companies (part of NS) has produced for the first time such a number of combines and tractors - 6000 units. A balanced balance of “price - efficiency”, a distinctive engineering school, and diversification of production are the main drivers of growth, says Dmitry Udras.

          In 2017, the growth of the Rostselmash group of companies amounted to 20% in real terms. In addition to the factors listed above, it had a positive effect on the dynamics of domestic agricultural machinery sales in Russia and the weakening ruble. Last year, RSM opened a representative office and a logistics complex in Germany (there are now three in all in Europe). The increase in exports to European countries is one of the important directions of the development of the group of companies. At the same time, work is underway on the release of a new generation of machines, which, on the one hand, will be more complicated and smarter, on the other, will reduce the requirements for operator qualifications.

          N: - For several years in a row you have been increasing sales and production volumes of equipment. According to the RSM website, in 2017, the enterprise reached a historic maximum for the production of equipment. What reasons contribute to this? Rate them by importance.

          DU: - In 2017, the RSM Group produced more than 6 thousand combines and tractors. Since 2000 (the year when the New Commonwealth became a strategic investor of RSM. - N) we have not produced so many self-propelled agricultural machines, so this is a record year for us. We do not take Soviet time into account - there were periods when 80 thousand combines a year were produced.

        In the 80s, what you did better is not necessary. It is better to take care of the crop and preserve it. Technology does not stand still, you need to take into account international experience and local realities.

    Necessarily They, without a twinge of conscience, which they already lack, use sanctions in unfair competition. And here Russia is the third year in a row leading in the export of wheat. Not order (according to American thinking), it is necessary by any means to stop this. And today they have one remedy - sanctions. In pursuit of sanctions on those who buy Russian wheat.

    It’s just that Russia switched to intensive technology, hence the harvest. But there is one thing, about which the author kept silent, this grain is essentially a raw material with a low redistribution. And the lack of raw materials is that Russia buys beef, and milk from palm oil. It’s not worth rejoicing over millions of grain sales while people are eating palm oil.

    Everything can be. True, this is secondary to the United States. In addition, why is there no such article that the US is ahead of the Russian Federation in oil? Yes, and there are a lot of questions on wheat, hard varieties are still bought for pasta. Well, they do not grow with us. We sell to Turkey, where flour mills, and flour itself, are more expensive than in Turkey ...
    A big crop is lower than the price, low profit is on the verge of profitability ...
    To inflate from the article, they say, the Russian Federation returned the "tsarist version of Russia" does not sound very good. Suffice it to recall why RI became a large exporter and increased its pace. Capitalism.
    And Americans are always preoccupied with the slightest fluctuation in the market. Large volume, lower price, well-being of the market.

    Thanks to vile sanctions and trade disruptions with China, overproduction in the US agrarian sector is already warmly waving. So here Russia will again be to blame. No, well, it’s understandable, since from the point of view of striped dogs, can Russia really produce or sell anything ?! This is a mess !!! It should not be the same !!! laughing

    (Does the publication in the WSJ mean that in the US they will now also think over the package of sanctions against the Russian agricultural sector?)
    Necessarily, otherwise it is not the USA. Sometimes it comes to mind that the American establishment is busy with the competition "who will create a notion about Russia faster, tougher and more dirty" and nothing will come of it. And then, according to the results in the parliament and the State Department, the winner's opus is sent down with instructions to their puppets.
    Well, here are the other day from M. Pompeo:

      Yes, put it on American and Canadian farmers, in general, you do not need to think about them. Gradually raise the agricultural sector and seriously take up education and production with high added value.

    Well, what can I say:
    Schizophrenia is a chronic disease that progresses from attack to attack, or proceeds continuously. Schizophrenia is characterized by a combination of ideas that do not correspond to reality (persecution, poisoning, exposure to “aliens” or “witchcraft”) and hallucinations (“voices”, “visions”). Sometimes the disease almost does not appear outwardly, but a person gradually becomes unemotional, callous, loses interest in everything, even in his beloved hobbies, hobbies.

    Russian harvests and the entry of Russian cereals into international markets lead US farmers to cope with this kind of competition
