Russia Bans Agriculture Imports from the U.S.

Posted: Updated:
        Russia makes a major move in banning imports from the U.S.
    The ban comes due to the ongoing turmoil in the western areas of Russia.

    The ban includes imports of U.S. meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, milk and dairy products.
    Eugene Graner with Heartland Investor Services says Russia doesn't import a lot of agriculture goods from the United States.
    In 2013, Russia purchased 1.3 billion dollars of U.S. ag products.
    300 million dollars of that was poultry products.
    Graner doesn't expect the move to have a major impact on U.S. farmers, but says it will hurt machinery dealers such as John Deere and Case IH. 

(Eugene Graner / Heartland Investor Services) "It impacts the ability for Russia to improve it's production. We have phenomenal trend line improvement yields here. That is going to hold them back from moving forward. They are still farming in what seems like the 19th century with a few add ons. The technology that they have from us is making strides, but they don't have the infrastructure we have. 

     The year-includeade cuts also inlcude the European Union, Australia, Canada and Norway.
