Crimea will be allocated 1.6 billion rubles for a grape breeding center

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed Order No. 3207-r on the allocation of an additional 1.6 billion rubles from the federal budget for the construction of a scientific and technological center for breeding, grape nursery and winemaking in Crimea. This was reported by press service of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation.

The center is being created on the basis of the All-Russian National Research Institute of Viticulture and Winemaking “Magarach” in Yalta.

“The new subdivision will have scientific laboratories, a center for experimental biotechnology, special rooms for growing seedlings and storing vines, lecture and tasting rooms, as well as a wine storage and an enoteca,” the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers said.

The total area of ​​the building will be over 18 thousand square meters. The opening is scheduled for 2025. In total, the facility will be financed over 3.2 billion rubles. As explained in the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers, additional funding was required in connection with the adjustment of the project documentation.

“Due to the cramped construction conditions, mountainous terrain and difficult soils, it became necessary to erect pile foundations, retaining walls and retaining structures, which affected the cost of the work,” the press service explained. which will provide the building with water, gas and electricity. “

Note that the creation of a modern nursery center is the most long-awaited event for the viticulture industry in Crimea. The lack of modern virus-free planting material significantly hinders the development of viticulture on the peninsula. Nurseries existing in Crimea provide no more than a third of the industry’s need for seedlings. In this regard, vineyards annually import tens of thousands of grape seedlings from abroad, mainly from nurseries in Italy, Serbia, Germany and other European countries. At the same time, 468-FZ “On viticulture and winemaking in the Russian Federation”, which entered into force in 2020, does not provide for state support of grape plantations established using imported planting material.
