Farming machines utilization program will start in Russia

Program of truck utilization and bus parc renewal will not be launched in 2012. Truck utilization was decided not to be started due to the rapid market growth, and bus program was canceled as Ministry of Regions has not got the money. Ministry of Finance agreed to appropriate only 3.7 billion roubles for farming machines utilization. 

According to Commersant newspaper, with reference to its sources, the program could be started this year already and will be financed from extra income of the budget in 2011, which will be distributed in October. The scheme is being discussed, but Rosagroleasing will probably subsidize 15% of the vehicle cost and later this money will be compensated by Ministry of Agriculture.

According to the director of Rosagromash, Evgeniy Korchevoy, the program will enable to purchase 7,000 – 12,000 agricultural vehicles. “Rosselmash as well as St. Petersburg and Minsk tractor plants can get the main support – the expert says. – We hope that the program will start in November-December, as it is more logical to start it during low season, in order to let farmers purchase the vehicles before Spring”.

According to Vedomosti newspaper, parc of agricultural vehicles is not renewed. As Konstantin Babkin, Rosselmash co-owner, says: “during six months of the current year only 2,000 grain combines were purchased, while the need is 5,000 - 6,000 units. The quality of the Russian agricultural vehicle parc is much worse than that of the USA and Europe: the share of new vehicles is only 20-30%, the rest parc is over 10 years old”.
At that truck and bus utilization programs, which were under consideration this Spring, most probably, will not be started in 2012 – the budget has no money for their realization. It was expected that these programs would need about 32 billion roubles for three years. Truck utilization program had to be provided for all cars with tonnage from 3.5 tons. The utilization bonus had not been clearly defined and varied from 150,000 to 250,000 roubles. The experts assessed sales of trucks under the program at the level of 20,000 cars per year.

Bus renewal program had to be subsidized via Ministry of Regions – the subsidy should be 30%-50% of the bus cost. It was planned that during three years of the program 4,000 small-class, 5,000 middle-class and 3,500 large-class buses should be replaced. But, according to the source in the market, “Ministry of Finance always claimed there was no money for these programs and Ministry of Regions and Ministry of Industrial Trade did not take any actions to get money for the programs in the new budget “. Ministry of Industrial Trade believes though, that Russian truck manufacturers do not need the Government support. The situation with buses is more difficult – according to the estimation of GAZ Group (controls about 70% of the market), the dropout from the bus parc in regions 1.2 times exceeds bus replacement.
