Since the beginning of the year more than 45 peasant farm holdings have been established in Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, and not only in traditional arctic branches of agriculture — reindeer husbandry and fishing, but also in cattle farming and plant growing. Nine reindeer-herding farm holdings received up to 3 million rubles for development. Dmitry Shmelev, the director of the regional directorate for rural development, told about the results of work of the regional competence center in the sphere of agricultural cooperation and support of farmers established this year.
The center is the operator of the regional project “Creation of the system of support for farmers and development of rural cooperation”, which is implemented within the national project “Small and medium business and support for individual entrepreneurial initiative”.
“With support of the competence center we held two contests among newly created farm holdings and citizens, who only expressed a desire to open a business in the agricultural sector”, Dmitry Shmelev said. – “As a result, three grants agro-startups provided within the national project and also six grants for beginning farmers went to reindeer-herding farm holdings, which will allocate the funds for creation of new jobs and increase in production amounts”.
In 2019 specialists of the competence center gave consultations on creation and development of peasant farm holdings to more than 300 people, held 14 training seminars in municipalities of the region. New contests for grant support will be held at the beginning of next year. Everyone interested in participation is recommended to start preparation for them already now.
“A good idea that should be useful for people and, most importable, be implementable is the basis of success. A competently drawn business plan with clear substantiation, why this idea should receive a grant, is the second component”, explained the head of the regional competence center in the sphere of agricultural cooperation and support of farmers Olga Shcherbina. – “Our center was created to help beginning and future farmers at all stages — from development of an idea and official registration of an enterprise to participation in contest procedures, registration of necessary documents and receiving of state support. Today it is provided to farmers of Yamal in 17 areas of work”.
