Soybean harvest in Russia may exceed 5 million tons

In 2022, the soybean harvest in Russia may reach 5-5.2 million tons, thereby setting a record over the past few years, the information and analytical service of Fertilizer Daily predicts.

“Soybean crops this year should significantly expand in several regions of Russia. For example, in the Voronezh region, its crops will increase by 3% to 200 thousand hectares, in the Lipetsk region – by almost 28% to 115 thousand hectares, in Tatarstan – by 73% to 8.5 thousand hectares,” Fertilizer Daily reports.

According to the statement of the agency, the total sown area in Russia under soybean in 2022 will be about 3.1-3.2 million hectares. However, geographically, soybean cultivation will be distributed mainly between the Central and Far Eastern Federal Districts – their shares in the structure of sown areas may be 45% and 37%, respectively.

“The supply of farmers with mineral fertilizers will help to increase the soybean yields. The Russian Fertilizer Producers Association (RFPA) reports that in early May, Russian producers of mineral fertilizers met the needs of farmers for fertilizers by 63% of the planned level for 2022. Soybean farmers were among those who received the necessary volumes of plant nutrients,” commented Fertilizer Daily.
