Tridge summary

The Analytical Credit Rating Agency (ACRA) predicts Russia's 2024 grain harvest could reach 146–148 million tons, marking it potentially the second largest after 2022's record 157.6 million tons. This optimistic forecast contrasts with Vladimir Petrichenko of ProZerno's more conservative estimate of 140 million tons for 2023, including 90-91 million tons of wheat, due to drought concerns, particularly in the South and Kuban region.
