In the sphere of agriculture, Karachay-Cherkessia is self-sufficient, and this industry is one of the leading and highly developed. The special importance of the development of the agro-industrial complex was noted by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin in the framework of his annual Message of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.

"Back in the early 2000s, we seriously depended on the supply of imported food. The situation has radically changed. Now we have to take the next step. Within four years, we plan to supply more world food to the world markets than to import it into the country. At the same time, it is necessary to increase the export of meat products, high-value goods, and increase the country's self-sufficiency in beef, milk, vegetables, "the head of state said in his address.

Along with this, the President stressed that the development of the agro-industrial complex is, of course, largely connected with large-scale commodity production. However, according to the head of state, this should not be at the expense of the interests of small farms and people who work there.

"We will develop agricultural cooperation, create conditions for income growth in rural areas," Putin said.

Acting Minister of Agriculture of the KCR, Ismail Erkenov, said that agriculture in Karachaevo-Cherkessia is now one of the leading sectors. According to him, just a few years ago the region was dependent on various supplies of products. To date, the situation has changed, and Karachaevo-Cherkessia exports food products.

"Agriculture today is one of the leading and highly developed industries. In this foreshortening, Karachay-Cherkessia is self-sufficient. Today we produce enough milk. With all farms and private farmsteads we produce 233 thousand tons. This is enough to ensure its population. Also with livestock products. We even export it to neighboring regions. All this became possible due to the fact that the state pays much attention to rural commodity producers and renders serious state support, "Ishkar Erkenov said.

At the same time, he drew particular attention to the fact that many programs are being implemented, according to which state support is provided. This is an unrelated support for crop farming, especially for conducting spring field work. Also for those engaged in the production of meat and milk, there is support for the purchase of livestock cattle. In addition, there is support for enterprises of the agro-industrial complex engaged in breeding breeding stock of sheep.

Note that in Karachaevo-Cherkessia, 25 farms that have the status of a breeding economy.

"This is a big indicator for the region. Especially I want to emphasize that serious support is provided to beginning farmers. About 700 farmers have received grant support over the past five years, which contributes to the overall index of agricultural products in the country. Also, great help is provided to family cattle-breeding farms, "Ismail Erkenov concluded.
