ArmInfo. The Armenian Ministry of Agriculture intends to tighten control over the harvesting process. In this regard, Deputy Agriculture Minister Robert Makaryan said during the September 8 press conference that in 2018 the list of beneficiaries of the program of state subsidizing of loans of processing enterprises will be presented.
"Thus, we will protect farmers from the possible risks associated with non-payment of funds for the supply of crops. And the villager will understand with whom it is possible to conclude contracts, and with whom it is not necessary to have business," he stressed.
The loan portfolio of the program will be 18-20 billion AMD, and the total amount of subsidies will exceed 990 million AMD. For one beneficiary, within the framework of the program, loan funds are envisaged in the amount of 1 billion.
It is noteworthy that the amount will not be given to enterprises, but directly to the account of farmers. In this connection, the Deputy Minister urged the villagers to conclude written contracts with the suppliers before the delivery of agricultural products.
