By July, 31-st harvesting of a winter wheat is completed, and harvesting of spring crops has already begun. The croppage of winter crops is 363,7 thousand tons in original weight, crop capacity - 43,6 centner /hectares. In single farms crop capacity of winter wheat reaches record parameters. So in joint ventures "Cattle breeder" in Shovgenovskij region 58 centner /hectares are received from the area of 600 hectares, "Dondukovski elevator" Open Joint-Stock Company 53,3 centner /hectares are received from the area of 2150 hectares; "Resource Agrobusiness" Open JointStock Company, in Giaginskij region , from received 53,1 centner /hectares from the area of 1185 hectares.

Grain is the culture forming agrarian sector economics. The beginning of grain harvesting current year for the first time is marked by such positive moment for peasants, as fodder and bread-grain purchasing price increase. Such developments have arisen for the first time for many years, when grain prices went down at the beginning of harvesting.

Growth of croppage and the grain prices raises hopes of farms' change to dynamic development. With source of grain increase in the republic, in single farms economically more stable, the material and technical condition will improve, the production techniques and farming standards will raise, such farms will expand winter crops taking into account, that grain prices will become stable and manufacture will be more profitable. Within the limits of the national project "The agroindustrial complex development", 41 cooperativ societies are provided to be created, 10 of them have already been created.

To work in this line the project of the task program "Development of the farming consumer's cooperation system in the Republic of Adygeya for 2007-2009 periods" was elaborated, and municipal unions are to take part in it equally.
