With a subsidy of 30 percent from the national government and a possible supplement from local government authorities, in Russia growers are able to acquire up to 60 percent of subsidies for investment in irrigation systems. According to Boele Terpstra of machinery exporter APH Group, irrigation is actually becoming a booming business in Russia. ‘There’s no European trade boycott for these products. The demand is high because due to the high potato prices in Russia, a complete pivot installation can sometimes be recouped in one season’, confirms Terpstra.
