Modernization of the Russian Agro-Industrial Complex in the Conditions of Increase of Food Security

Subject/Topic. The issues of increase of food security of the state have become very important due to increase of the planet’s population and the requirements of increase of living standards. The necessity for increasing the intensity of production of food products in the conditions of stable production capacities of agriculture grows. In this situation, agrarians look for new innovational solutions to the problem of increase of the production volumes without large growth of final products’ price. Another problem is growth of the cost of food products, which also requires the search for new technological solutions for increasing the efficiency in agriculture. Certain states strive to reduce their export of food – due to growth of prices – satisfying their own need for food and food reserves. However, such measures only increase the problem in the global scale – so there’s a necessity for the global modernization of the sphere. Thus, application of innovational technologies in agriculture could become a new vector for modernization of the traditional agricultural methods of production and activation of hidden potentials of the sphere. Goal/Tasks. The purpose of this research is theoretical substantiation of the current processes, search for practical methods of stimulation and increase of efficiency of the Russian agriculture, and development of the directions of further modernization of the sphere. According to the set goal, the authors formulate and solve the following tasks: Analysis the situation with the dynamics of the world population, analysis of the consumer sector and its profitability level, evaluation of dynamics of population’s real incomes, conclusion on the number of the poor, and substantiation of the necessity for search for new solutions for the problems of food security. Methodology. The research is conducted with application of the methods of graphic presentation of information, statistical analysis of data, financial analysis, trend analysis, and the methods of comparison, analogy, and systematization. Results. To increase the level of the Russian food security, it is necessary to provide economic access to high-quality food for the Russian population, which is impossible without government support for agricultural manufacturers and new solutions in this sphere. Conclusions/Significance. The value of the work consists in emphasis on external and internal threats to national food security, which increase despite the growth of external import. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020.
