The Presidium of the State Assembly of Bashkiria included in the agenda of the plenary session of the Parliament on May 25 the bill "On Amendments to Articles 15 and 22 of the Republican Law "On the Regulation of Land Relations in the Republic". This was reported to Bashinform News Agency in the press service of the Kurultai.
The draft law proposes to revise the minimum allowable size of land plots allocated for agricultural production. We are talking about lands in republican or municipal ownership, and lands, state ownership of which is not delimited.
“The minimum size of land plots allocated for the needs of farms is proposed to be reduced from the size of the average district land share to two hectares. The minimum size of new land plots formed from agricultural land for growing agricultural products on open ground is also planned to be reduced to two hectares - from the current norm of 50 hectares, ”said Konstantin Tolkachev, speaker of the Bashkirian parliament.
Adopting the new law will enable active and involved unused lands in agricultural circulation. It will serve as an impetus for developing entrepreneurial initiatives in agricultural production, deputies of the State Assembly believe.
The current legislation does not allow allocating small plots to land users, and small businesses are often not ready to take large plots for use since this is not economically feasible.
“If an entrepreneur, for example, is going to grow strawberries, he does not need 50 hectares right away. The adoption of the bill will positively impact the development of small businesses in the agricultural sector and ensure healthy competition in the industry in the interests of the residents of the republic,” Konstantin Tolkachev concluded.
