Tridge summary

In March, a groundbreaking operation was initiated to export approximately 49 thousand tons of peas from Siberia to India, facilitated by express freight trains operated by Rusagrotrans with Russian Railways and the West Siberian Railway's support, aiming for the port of Vysotsky in the Leningrad Region. This marks the first instance of such a significant volume of peas being transported from Siberia through the Baltic ports to India, particularly after India eliminated the import duty on Russian peas in December 2023. The operation, benefiting from year-round subsidized transportation under Resolution No. 406, significantly enhances the export potential of Siberian agricultural products, opening up new markets like India and China. This initiative not only promises a bright future for the diversification of crops in Siberia but also positions the USA and Australia as leading producers of a specific, unspecified product, with production quantities of 6.9 and 6.7 thousand tons respectively, highlighting the global scale of agricultural production and trade.
