Creation of three new farm holdings in the sphere of reindeer husbandry at the expense of “agro-startup” grants became the result of fulfillment of the regional project “Creation of the system on support for farmers and development of rural cooperation” within the national project “Small and medium-sized businesses and support for individual business initiatives” in 2019. Contests for grants were conducted twice. Their total sum made more than 6 million rubles. The funds were allocated to purchase of specialized equipment and animals. In 2020 it is planned to distribute 5 grants for the sum in 15 million rubles. This information was given by the deputy director of the department of agro-industrial complex of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Alexander Zemskikh at the briefing.
According to him, last year reindeer herders were interested most of all in this kind of state support. This year it is expected that southern districts will also express initiative. For example, in Shuryshkarskiy district there are people, who want to be busy with cattle farming, in Purovskiy – with plant growing — growing vegetables in closed ground. Alexander Zemskikh underlined that qualified specialists would consider every project and would give their recommendations already at the stage of preparation.
Last year 45 peasant farm holdings were organized in Yamal, 39 of them – in the sphere of reindeer husbandry. The amounts of products being manufactured by them grow every year. By the results of 2019, the total amount of production in the peasant farm holdings made more than 60 tonnes of reindeer meat. All those subjects of business received subsidies for manufacturing of products. The task of the regional project is the following: till 2024 to involve more than 100 residents of Yamal to business activity in agriculture with help of state support.
Alexander Zemskikh suggested everyone wishing to be busy with agriculture to contact the specialized department for consultations.
