The Ministry of Agriculture in Russia is contemplating the creation of a separate land register to facilitate the achievement of a target to increase rice production to 2 million tons, up from the current average of 1.1 million tons. This initiative is part of an action plan aimed at boosting rice farming until 2030 and involves collaboration with various stakeholders. The land register is expected to enhance the audit and utilization of agricultural lands, particularly valuable reclamation lands. The National Rice Union is optimistic that this goal can be achieved in 3-5 years, given the potential expansion into previously unsuitable areas due to climate change. Russia became self-sufficient in rice in 2008 and has seen an increase in rice harvest in recent years, with domestic consumption reaching 650 thousand tons annually.
