Russia Sees Winter Grain Loss of as Much as 30% in Volga Region

Dec. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Russia’s wider Volga region may lose 20 percent to 30 percent of winter grains due to frost and snow, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said.

Losses have been reported in Orenburg, Saratov, Penza and Ulyanovsk, as well as in Volgograd in the Southern Federal District, Dvorkovich said at a government meeting yesterday, according to the government’s website. Grains’ loss is because of frosts and thin snow layer, he said.

Dvorkovich ordered the allocation of additional funds for re-seeding where needed in the spring, according to the statement. Nationwide, winter grain loss is estimated at about 8 percent of 9 percent, which is about average, Dvorkovich said.
