Subject. The article investigates the state and development prospects for nurseries of perennial fruit and berry plantations.
Objectives. Our aim is to explore the current state of fruit tree nurseries in Russia, identify trends and directions of government incentives for their development.
Methods. The study draws on abstract-logical, monographic, systems, comparative, economic, statistical, and other methods of economic research.
Results. We show that the level of fruit tree nursery development does not adequately respond to the demands of intensively growing horticulture. Over one third of planting materials are imported. The ranking of the country's regions by the volume of planting material demonstrates that the greatest number of seedlings is in the Krasnodar Krai and the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic. However, only 25% of gardens of the Krasnodar Krai use the planting material produced in the region.
Conclusions. We unveiled trends in the fruit tree nursery development by subject of the Russian Federation; substantiated the importance of introducing differentiated subsidy rates for perennial fruit and berry plantations, applying an increasing factor, when domestic planting material is used.
