Head of the Committee on Agrarian Policy Yuriy Shevchenko stated that the farmers of the peninsula have faced some circumstances that threaten the agrarian activities,  And there are at least two reasons. The activity of the Crimean agrarians is hampered by a lack of water for irrigation, as well as the embargo of the Russian Federation for the supply of seedlings of fruit crops from Western and Eastern Europe ( as they are sanction-busting imports).

“Today in Crimea we don't have margin fertilizers. Moreover, their cost is 20-30% higher than on the mainland of the Russian Federation,” he said. “One way to solve this situation could be launch the production of phosphate fertilizers in the facilities of the “Crimean Titan” plant,” stated  Yuriy Shevchenko.

Earlier, the Crimean farmers, who have been cultivating various crops and market them themselves for years, claimed about significant deterioration of the market conditions on the peninsula. With the arrival of the Russian authorities in Crimea all stages, from growing product, to its sales, became considerably complicated.
