Abstract

Recent years agriculture has been considered as one of the most actively developing sector of economy in Russia but there are some niches that are not developed sofar. For example organic farming is promising to be a very perspective project that would positively contribute to sustainable development of Russian economy. The aim of our work is to study the prerequisites and preparedness of Russia to implementation of organic farming on its territory and investigate the advantages and disadvantages of transition from conventional to organic agriculture in Russia.

The first part of the research work is devoted to description and analysis of current state of agricultural companies in Russia. In addition a comparative analysis of the results of the all-Russian Agricultural Census for years 2006 and 2016 was performed that allowed to highlight most important changes and tendencies in Russian agriculture over the last decade. The fact is that Russia currently possess great reserves of long-fallow lands that are perfectly suited for organic farming, besides the development of this sector could positively influence the employment in rural areas. However according to the current statistics there are very few organic farms in Russia, usually it's considered as something exotic and its contribution to the regional gross production is negligible.

At the next stage the main laws in agriculture sector are examined, including the Federal Law about organic products (No 280 of 3th August 2018) that will come into force in January 2020 and Interstate Standard of Organic production, production regulations, processing, labelling and implementation (GOST 33980-2016). In 2 years the standardization system will be more severe. We're trying to picture how such farming corporations, private farms and individual entrepreneurs will survive in new conditions and in order to create the full overview we analyze the nonfinancial reports of the biggest agricultural companies in Russia. We have selected four largest companies according to the magazine Agroinvestor "Leaders of Russian arable land. Top 22 agricultural holdings by land in processing". On the basis of the above standards we have made 20 evaluation criteria. We used the method of content analysis, having studied the materials of the official website of companies, articles in specialized journals and reporting of these companies.
