Examples of land sizes for a farming business in Russia

What size of land is better to buy?

In the past decades, the total area occupied by farmers has increased by two and a half times. Large farms absorb small companies, increasing the volume of production. Many companies are moving from manufacturing to processing their own products, and this is associated with added value.

Large agro-industrial enterprises cover up to 8,000 hectares of land (or about 20,000 acres), and about two-thirds of this land produces impressive harvests. These companies began to actively process their own products, producing semi-finished products or finished products from them.

As for large farms in the agricultural complex, their average area reaches 4 thousand Hectares (this is 10 thousand Hectares). This does not include microenterprises that are part of these companies. On average, private farms barely reach the size of 0.8 ha (2 acres), while small farms cover 240-280 ha (or 600-700 acres).

Large agricultural producers often locate their businesses in several regions and can cover up to 400,000 hectares (or 1 million acres). And the size of small companies depends on their location, climate, and soil fertility. So in areas with a mild climate, in contrast to the Northern or Central regions, there are enough small areas for growing crops.

In the agricultural economy of the country, farming has a high dynamics of development in comparison with other industries. Today in Russia there are about 250 thousand people. Households that annually increase supplies to the agricultural market. The number of entrepreneurs engaged in growing various crops, poultry or animals is also growing.

Most farms are located in the Krasnodar region, which is one of the leaders in soil fertility compared to other regions. More than 14 thousand farms are located here. In the Stavropol territory, there are slightly more than 11 thousand farms, and in the Rostov region – about 8 thousand. These figures include both large enterprises with huge areas and animal husbandry, as well as small entrepreneurs.

This diversity is fully justified, given the state support that Russian farmers receive. Among other things, impressive tax benefits are provided. For example, the single agricultural tax paid by farms does not exceed 6%, while other business representatives contribute 20% of their profits to the country’s budget. However, the situation in farms is far from stable. Farmers do not have the opportunity to apply advanced technologies due to the fact that after the collapse of the USSR, the country did not have active scientific developments in the field of agricultural technologies, new plant varieties and agricultural machinery.
