Due to weather conditions in some regions of Russia, this year's grain harvest may be lower than previously planned. Therefore, the volume of grain supplies for export will most likely have to be reduced, the Ministry of Agriculture said
Plans for grain exports in the 2022-2023 season may have to be reduced, Agriculture Minister Dmitry Patrushev warned, as harvested volumes are now lower than last year. Patrushev stated this at an off-site meeting of the Ministry of Agriculture’s headquarters in Bashkortostan, the ministry’s Telegram channel reports.
“The current yield is generally not bad, but the volume of grain harvested at the moment is noticeably less than a year ago,”— the minister noted. According to him, 27% of the grain area has already been harvested and 55 million tons have been harvested.
“In aggregate, all this creates risks in terms of achieving the grain harvest of 130 million tons. Of course, we will fully provide our market, there will be no problems with this. However, if the planned volumes are not achieved, we will have to revise our export plans of 50 million tons. And this may have a negative impact on the world grain market,»,— Patrushev explained.
He named three reasons for the decline in yields:
- due to the cold spring in many subjects, harvesting began later;
- in some regions, harvesting is complicated by rain, high humidity and winds;
- an increase in the load on agricultural machinery, difficulties with the supply of components for foreign cars.
On July 7, President Vladimir Putin, amidst expectations of a global food crisis, said that a good harvest is expected in the country, including wheat.
“We have good prospects for the harvest, there will be about 130 million tons of wheat. This is a significant volume, if we bear in mind that 800 million tons are produced in the world, — Putin said at a meeting with the winners of the “Leaders of Russia” contest. According to him, Russia will retain the first place in the export of these products in the world.

In May, the president spoke about the hope for a record wheat harvest in the history of Russia. According to him, the grain harvest could reach 130 million tons, including 87 million tons of wheat.
“If this happens, and we will rely on this, it will become a record in the entire history of Russia” ,— then Putin said at a meeting on economic issues. Such a harvest, according to him, would not only meet domestic needs, but also increase supplies to the world market.
