Russian agribusiness has shown good economic results in the current difficult economic conditions. Further growth of the physical volume of production and the competitiveness of Russian producers in the domestic and world markets depends on the availability of technology, financing, and marketing. Experience in international agribusiness in developed countries can be used to great effect in Russia. What methods can contribute to the consolidation of the forces of science and business development across the agri-food sphere of Russia?
