08 Dec 2011Russian Agriculture Performance

Agricultural production in Russia is particularly subject to frost and drought. Fertilization accounts for about 10% of crop yields in the south to more than 30% in north Russia. According to the last soil survey (2005), 42% of Russia’s arable soils are low in humus, 44% have unfavorable acidity level and need lime, 21% are low and very low in P, and 10% low and very low in K. Fertilizer efficiency is low because of the problems with soil acidity.
