Russia: Fresh Deciduous Fruit

For Marketing Year (MY) 2016/17, Russian apple, pear and table grape production are forecast to increase to 1,337,220 MT, 159,400 MT and 102,660 MT respectively. While current interest rates generally discourage large scale investment, the Russian government is offering subsidies for orchard and vineyard development. Continuing countersanctions on products from the United States, the European Union and Australia have had an adverse impact on Russian fruit trade. Russia’s economic sanctions on Turkey will likely lead to a 10 percent decrease in table grape imports.
