About Conference


Over the previous six years, the Conference has become the highest caliber event covering Russian and CIS agricultural sector. It features the most qualified speakers, attendance of the highest ranking agribusiness executives, and a large productive capacity (since inception, the «land bank» of attending companies increased from 2.7 to 5.2 MHA of arable land).

The conference is meant for big and biggest agricultural producers, ag inputs manufacturers, dealers and distributors, financiers, insurers, agricultural and agribusiness investors, policy makers.

The purpose of the Conference is to create the platform where agricultural producers and their counterparts along the vertical supply chain meet together and have a complex discussion on opportunities and challenges of the upcoming crop marketing year and the years ahead.

  • 112 MHA of arable land
  • Including 70 MHA of perennial crop farmland
  • Land lease: up to 49 years
  • Unlike neighboring Ukraine and Kazakhstan land market has been evolving for more than ten years: millions of hectares are already in hands of private owners and investors
  • Land: still substantially undervalued regarding margin/price
  • Foreigners: full rights to land lease, have right to buy land if establish Russian company: more than 2.7 MHA is already under control of foreign operators, including 1 MHA in ownership
  • Competitive advantage in small grains production: number 2 to 4 world wheat exporter, highest wheat yields CAGR among all key competitors. 2014/15: to be record high country’s wheat export; 2015/16 chances to even renew record high grain export level
  • Aggressively growing niche and less-developed industry branches, such as pulses, commercial vegetables, greenhouses, etc.
  • Aggressively growing commercial animal protein sector: an incredible 15+% CAGR in commercial poultry and swine sectors during 2004-2015 period
  • Strong state support to agriculture
  • One of biggest European food consumption markets
  • Sanctions are painful, but paradoxically, create new strong opportunities for many domestic ag production and processing sectors
