Krasnodar, 11 October – Yug Times. The official delegation from the Krasnodar region took part in the Agro-Industrial Fair Golden Autumn — 2017 held from October 4 until 7 in Moscow.
The Kuban exposition occupying an area of about 100 sq m featured the achievements of the region’s food and processing industry, vegetable, tea and seed growing, viticulture and winemaking.
Speaking at the fair, Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev backed Governor Kondratiev’s initiative to found a scientific nursery centre in the Kuban region and charged the relevant official bodies to develop the documents required to consider the possibility of having the new project included into the federal program of subsidies.
In his turn, Mr. Kondratiev reminded that the 18 nursery-gardens currently operating in the region cannot fully satisfy the need in fruit-tree saplings and baby grapevines.
During the forum, three Kuban farmers were awarded the title of the Honoured Agricultural Worker of the Russian Federation.
