Abstract. Social problems should be solved by the state together with the business community as a priority in order to ensure sustainable economic growth and a high standard of living for the population of the country. The article presents an analysis of the main production indicators and indicators achieved within the framework of the goals set by the program documents in the field of agro-industrial and fisheries complexes. Most of the set goals have been achieved, the results obtained have become possible thanks to the systematic state support of organizations of the food complex on the principles of public-private partnership. To change the established trend of the liberal model of economic development, it is necessary to strengthen the role of the state. In order to stimulate innovation and investment activities, to improve the technical and technological level of production, it is necessary to determine the main priorities within the framework of the adopted program documents and allocate the necessary resources for these areas, constantly monitoring the decisions taken. Building a new system of public administration for the implementation of program documents in the field of the development of agriculture and fisheries will guarantee the achievement of the goals set by the state in a timely manner.

Agri-food inflation: origins and antidote

Alexey V. Golubev, PhD (Economics), Professor, Honoured Scientific Worker of RF

Russian State Agrarian University MSKhA named after K.A. Timiryazev, Moscow, Russia

Abstract. The article reveals the key reasons for the rise in food prices, the origins of which lie in the monopoly and oligopoly position of a number of participants in the food chain and these are not agricultural producers. The enlarged formula of the food pricing process is given, where the initial conditions are set by monopolized suppliers of agricultural means of production and intermediaries. In this situation, the transit of cash flows is carried out through agriculture. To determine objectively reasonable prices, it is proposed to use the calculation of dynamic cost. The algorithm of market price regulation in the entire technological chain of food production and sale is presented. Insufficient conditions for perfect competition and low efficiency of state regulation of economic behavior of participants in the food market are noted. The term intermediate competition is introduced. A set of mechanisms and tools that prevent the growth of food prices is shown. The conclusion is made about the resource capabilities of the Russian economy for effective pricing management in the domestic food market, which makes it possible to neutralize the negative impact of global and subjective factors.

Keywords: agri-food inflation, import of inflation, intermediate competition, transit of money through agriculture, food chain, entry points of pricing, dynamic cost

Abstract. The article presents a study of the dynamics of the indicators of the yield of grain crops in Russia, taking into account the statistics of risk-extreme factors affecting the productivity of grain production. The review of scientific works of domestic and foreign scientists devoted to the issues of determining the main factors affecting the quality and productivity of grown grain products is given. The authors proposed to divide the natural factors affecting the productivity of grain production into two groups: static and predictable. The analysis of the dynamics of inter-annual indicators of productivity of grain production in Russia, as well as the main meteorological factors affecting it, is presented. The indicators of meteorological hazards for the period 2019-2020 in the territories of the federal districts of the Russian Federation were studied. It is shown how the presence and frequency of detected risk-extreme values of meteorological factors have recently confirmed the fact of climate change in general. This problem is serious for Russia. The authors put forward a concept about the possible redistribution of the geography of grain production in the world in accordance with climate change scenarios in the coming decades. The processes of redistribution of territories for the production of grain crops will also affect Russia. It is important to learn how to predict these processes for the Russian Federation, which has vast territories with different climatic conditions inherent in it. Identification of sustainable districts with the most adaptive conditions for growing crops in the face of climate change can reduce the level of risk when making decisions in conditions of uncertainty.

Controlling in the anti-crisis management of an agricultural enterprise

Gulia M. Iskhakova, Senior Lecturer

Kazan Volga Federal University, Kazan, Russia

Abstract. The orientation of the modern management system towards strategic development and the creation of potential for long-term growth of enterprises determines the need to develop and apply modern approaches and tools in the management and organization of the effective functioning of the enterprise. Currently, one of these tools is controlling, the concept of which is designed to implement a new approach to the process of internal enterprise management. Not all aspects of controlling have found their due theoretical, methodological and practical solution, therefore, the concept of controlling has not yet found widespread use in the practical activities of domestic enterprises. In this regard, there is a need for a comprehensive study of theoretical and practical approaches to the formation and effective functioning of the controlling system, to determine its place in the enterprise management system. Formation of an effective model of the functioning of the controlling system in the anti-crisis management of an enterprise is a particularly important problem.
