In order to increase marginality, plant growers should incorporate high-protein crops into their crop rotation. They are highly demanded in both the domestic market and among exporters. This finding was revealed at the leading industry conference Russian Crop Production, which is run via official support from the Ministry of Agriculture in Russia.
Based on experience from the AgroTerra Group of Companies, soybeans are 1.5 times more profitable to grow than grains if using the right technology. AgroTerra is one of the first companies in post-soviet Central Russia that mastered the commercial production of soybeans and is now testing other high-protein crops.
UN’s food and agricultural organization estimate that market demand for soy will grow by 32% in the next 5 years. This is related to population growth and an increase in demand for high-protein foods. In the future, drivers of consumption will be India, China, Pakistan, and African countries. Russian producers who cultivate fertile, black soil lands will be able to take advantage of this potential.
“Fields sown with soybeans are expanding in Russia, but almost 60% of them are located in the Far East. For successful growth in the central region, producers need to use correct adaptive technology and high-quality seeds that coincide with the climatic zone. At AgroTerra, the Research and Innovative Center spent three years developing its own standards by testing seed varieties, fertilizers, and adjusting seed production. During this season, we learned how to harvest of 30.5 centers/ha of land and obtain up to 40% protein composition in beans. Today, we have set instructions on how to produce soy and high-potential seed material,” noted Alexander Dashenko, director of the Agribusiness Development Center, AgroTerra Integrator.
