Agrarians of the Odessa region received financial support for the amount of 115 million hryvnias a year

In 2018, 115 million hryvnias were sent from the state budget to support the farmers of the Odessa region. The most popular in terms of the number of participants was the program to partially compensate for the cost of agricultural machinery and equipment, as well as a subsidy for the maintenance of calves. This became known during the teleconference meeting of the Odessa Regional State Administration with the participation of districts, cities and OTG.

"Regional enterprises and farmers have been actively using state support programs in 2018. At the same time, they were able to participate in several of them simultaneously. For example, more than half a thousand were compensated for the cost of machinery and equipment, 35 - cheaper loans. Almost 5,500 individuals have benefited from a subsidy for livestock keeping, and 92 - a budget subsidy for the development of their own farms. This year the list of directions of the programs is expanded, therefore we expect more participants ", - stressed Ivan Petriv, Head of the Agrarian Policy Department of the Odessa Regional State Administration.

In addition, the management provides advice on the conditions and necessary documents for participation in support programs, both public and regional.

Recall, at the initiative of the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov adopted a program for the development of the agro-industrial complex of the Odessa region for 2019-2023 "Agrarian Odeschina". It provides 17 directions of budget support, including the introduction of scientific developments.
