Expert of the Analytical Center Elena Razumova believes that the problem of fluctuations in crop yields and, accordingly, prices for agricultural products may be solved through the mechanisms of insurance of profitability of agricultural producers.

"Moreover, it is necessary to continue work on the development of exchange trade of agricultural products on online platforms, which can be accessed by direct producers rather than numerous intermediaries between farmers and the end user or the exporter. It is also necessary to continue work on the development of logistics and long-term storage of products accredited by the public markets," Ms. Razumova noted.
