Having started to prepare for the planting season, farmers will massively donate their “gold”, but for quite different prices. Meanwhile, according to traders, farmers are waiting.
According to agricultural businessmaen, the difference between the cost of grain at FH and LLC should average 12%. Now that percentage in the region barely approaches 5, explained in the LLC «Kaz Com-K».
