According to the operational information of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia, as of November 17, 2021, the potato harvest in the organized sector of the Russian Federation amounted to 6,6 million tons (against 6,8 million tons in 2020). The final results of the clearing have not yet been tallied, but no big global changes in the data are expected.
The result turned out to be lower than planned (the department's experts expected that the country would receive at least 7,15 million tons of potatoes), the main reason for the shortage is unfavorable weather conditions. An emergency regime was introduced in 16 regions of Russia this year, which could not but affect the amount of harvest, the quality of potatoes, as well as the costs of production and the level of provision of certain territories with vegetables and potatoes.
