Tridge summary

Last year, agrarians of the Russian Federation significantly increased the production of so-called niche crops. This is largely due to the lack of state regulation in these markets, said Dmitry Rylko, director general of the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies (IKAR). "An analysis of the final data on harvesting last year showed that agricultural producers are intensively looking for new markets, trying to "move out" from the main crops to niches free from state regulation," Rylko told Interfax. According to him, the area under niche crops is insignificant, but the trend is quite clear, record figures have been achieved for a number of crops.

"This is a record figure since 1990, when 4.922 million tons of these crops were harvested," said Rylko.
