The total grain area planted in was 12% higher than in , and grain production was only 5% lower. Despite this, there was a great famine in Russia in and , with up to several million victims. 19 Because total grain production was not as low in and , the cause of the famine could only be found in the Soviet government's Cited by: 7.

      The recent decline in the world per caput production of cereals has been interpreted by some as indicating a structural change for the worse in the world food trends caused by increasingly binding constraints on the side of production.

        [SEPP Comment: If one considers the grain production of areas previously within the USSR, the record tumbled long ago. For example, “Ukraine’s market year wheat harvest reached million tonnes, the largest crop since independence in , the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) reported. In the next two years it fell to million; this at a time when the level of grain production was only barely sufficient to feed the population. The result spelled famine for millions of workers and peasants. Sugar production in the same period dropped from million poods to 48 million. Even more terrible were the losses to livestock.

Agriculture in Russia has always had to contend with unfavorable climate. At the same time, large-scale socio-economic experiments have also strained the country’s food production potential throughout the 20 th century.

The relative role of climate and state agricultural policies in affecting production of cereals was studied for the period of –Cited by: 4. The climate also favors the hard red grain as against the soft wheat, the former characterized by a shorter growing season and a lower yield (White, ).

The localization of the wheat crop in the steppe and wooded steppe zones of Russia resulted in a strong division of the country into two groups of regions—"consumption" and "productive.".

The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) report similarly argued that weather was the key determinant of the agricultural success, with over 50% of the increase in grain production during – associated with the favorable climate (USSR: the impact of recent).

As a result of a lower demand for feed grain there should have been an excess amount of grain that could help replenish the state grain reserves (Table ).
