In the Bakhchisarai region, 2 agricultural projects have successfully started, which received grant support this year. This was announced by the Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Crimea Andrei Savchuk.
For the implementation of the regional project “Acceleration of small and medium-sized businesses” of the national project “Small and medium-sized businesses and support for individual entrepreneurial initiatives” from 2019 to 2022, 54 C (F) H received grant support for a total amount of more than 130 million rubles.
“Such government support allows any novice farmer to make a start in agriculture: set up a garden, start growing vegetables, engage in beekeeping, purchase livestock, poultry, equipment and much more. Sometimes, it is the grant funds that help to reach a new, more serious level, start producing unique products or improve your production. So did Irina Puzdimer from the village of Malinovka, using a grant from the Ministry of Agriculture of Crimea, she bought refrigeration equipment for a future fruit storage. In the Bakhchisaray district, an individual entrepreneur, together with her husband, cultivates a young pear orchard of the Carmen variety. In addition to him, in the Simferopol region, the family grows another popular variety of pears – Bere Bosk, as well as apple trees and cherries. Therefore, the question of where to store the harvested fruits has become especially acute for them,” Andriy Savchuk said.
The head of the Crimean Ministry of Agriculture also noted that an individual entrepreneur sells his products at agricultural fairs that take place on the peninsula, and has also been supplying fruits to schools and kindergartens in the Simferopol region for several years.
“Another individual entrepreneur from the village of Tabachnoye, Ivan Lozovoy, received grant funds to build a block-type greenhouse and purchase equipment for heating it. In the vegetable complex, branches have been laid to heat the beds and a “fog” system has been installed for cooling in the hot season. Watering here is carried out with the help of “smart technologies”. Water and fertilizers are supplied to each plant thanks to drip irrigation. Now the entrepreneur grows cucumbers and tomatoes in the greenhouse. The harvest is sold in the markets of the Crimean capital,” added the Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Crimea.
This year, 7 agricultural producers received a grant in the form of a subsidy from the budget of the Republic of Crimea for the implementation of the project for the creation and development of a peasant (farm) economy.
