Information agency Credinform offers the ranking of the largest Russian manufacturers of agrochemical products on the current assets to equity ratio.
The manufacturers of agrochemical products with the highest volume of revenue (TOP-10) were selected for the ranking, according to the data from the Statistical Register for the latest available accounting period (for the year 2014). Then the companies were ranked by decrease in the current assets to equity ratio (Table 1).
Current assets to equity ratio (х) characterizes the company's ability to maintain the level of its own working capital and replenish current assets in case of need at its own sources. This indicator is calculated as a ratio of company’s own current assets to the total sum of own assets. The recommended value ranges from 0,2 to 0,5.
Decrease of the indicator designates the possible delay in payment of receivables or tightening of trade credit conditions on the part of suppliers or contractors. The increase provides evidence of the growing ability to repay current liabilities.
For getting of the most comprehensive and fair picture of the financial standing of an enterprise it is necessary to pay attention to all available combination of ratios, financial and other indicators.

DOKTOR FARMER RUS LTD took the first line of the ranking with the value of the current assets to equity ratio equal to 1,31, which indicates a high efficiency of resources use. However, this company got unsatisfactory solvency index Globas-i, due to the fact that it is in the process of reorganization in the form of merger with another legal entity. In addition, this enterprise is one of four in the TOP-10, which admitted a loss or reduction of net profit and revenue in 2014 compared to the previous period.
JOINT STOCK COMPANY AUGUST INC. SOCIEDAD ANONIMA CERREDA FIRMA AVGUST, leading in the industry in terms of revenue, took the seventh line of the ranking. The share of this company in the total volume of revenue of the TOP-10 companies made 54%.

Starting September 3rd, 2016 the Government Regulation of the RF “Concerning access restrictions to certain ranges of foodstuff from foreign countries for purposes of procurements for meeting state and municipal needs” as of August 22nd, 2016 №832 came into force.
The Regulation, prepared by the Ministry of Agriculture, is focused on protection of the Russian agricultural market and correspondingly on support of domestic goods producers. The operation of restrictions won’t refer to commercial procurement of shops, outlet chains and public catering enterprises. The goods from the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) countries are exempt from the restrictions, if no less than two applications meeting the requirements while identifying the supplier in the course of public procurement were filed.
In the restrictive list there are such foodstuffs as meat and fish products, milk, cheese, butter, rice, sugar and salt.
In the explanatory note to the Regulation it is stated that the above mentioned goods are produced in Russia and the EEU countries in the quantities sufficient for satisfying the needs of the social sphere.
Significant changes have taken place in the Russian market of foodstuffs recently. The growth of the production in many branches of farming is observed. We have already devoted several publications to production of grain, livestock, fishery и др
Moreover, there is a downtrend of dependence on imports on many types of foodstuff. The following data of the Federal State Statistics Service in the Figure 1 and Table 1 gives evidence to it.
Dependence on imports of cereals, pork, poultry, cheese, preserved meat and confectionery were decreasing with the biggest rates.
