“Some of the basic measures for high yield crops are: moisture –accumulating tillage, mandatory foliar application, providing the necessary amount of feeding using organic fertilizers (particularly, biological technologies) and use of mineral fertilizers. For the next year, we set an objective to apply no less than 70 kg AD per hectare of field. Hopefully, the workshop will help is to fulfill our plan on accumulating fertilizers and achieve the target yield of agricultural crops at more advantageous conditions”, pointed out Marat Zyabbarov.

Moving to the main part of the workshop, Deputy Head of Tatarstan OFAS Sergey Pavlov stated that exchange means, first of all, transparency, so they are welcomed by the antimonopoly bodies.

“The regional workshop in Kazan is another event held by FAS to popularize and develop exchange trade with mineral fertilizers. Today all large fertilizer producers offer their goods through the exchange. Since the beginning of 2019 the total volume of applications for sale of fertilizers reached around 250.000 tons. The main task is to make the trading mechanism attracting for consumers. Regional workshops are the most efficient way to compete the task. It is essential that the workshop drew attention of the main agricultural producers in Tatarstan”, emphasized Dmitry Makhonin.

Regional Policy Director of “SPIMEX” JSC, Alexander Gudkov, described the work of St Petersburg International Mercantile Exchange. Among its advantages he mentioned, first of all, guaranteed surety for on exchange contracts and fraud protection on the fertilizers markets. “Surety – at around 5% – is submitted prior to launching trading and is given to a counteragent in cases of a refusal form a transaction. After the parties conclude a contract, 100% advance payment is put on the clearing account. The money are transferred to the seller after the buyer obtains the goods”, explained the specialist, who underlined that any agricultural producer can open and see the offers and acquire the necessary products if prices are interesting.
