The governor of the Jewish Autonomous Region asked the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia for money on land reclamation

Alexander Levintal, Governor of the Jewish Autonomous Region, at a meeting chaired by the Plenipotentiary Ambassador Yury Trutnev in Vladivostok, asked Dmitry Patrushev, the head of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia, for financial assistance for land reclamation work in the region. According to Alexander Levintal, they are very expensive, but could give areas from 200 thousand to 300 thousand hectares of additional acreage.

According to the press service of the government of the Jewish Autonomous Region, the head of the region also asked the federal authorities to reduce for the Jewish Autonomous Region the share of regional funding for crop production support to 10%. Now co-financing is 50%.

The governor called the construction of a processing plant with a capacity of 150 thousand tons the main prospective task of the region in the development of exports of crop products. It should help the development of deep processing of soybeans in the region so as not to export only raw soybeans.
