Abstract : Russia's agricultural sector has experienced profound and fundamental change over the past two decades in response to the dissolution of institutions built under the Soviet regime. The relative chaos of the 1990s gave way to increased state intervention under Presidents Vladimir Putin and Dmitri Medvedev, contributing to a broad agricultural recovery. The present study examines the possible future course of agricultural development by presenting three scenarios depicting the challenges and opportunities the sector may face within alternative development contexts.
