"Thus, for example, the right is being granted to grain receiving ventures to provide related services, such as providing railways for use by other ventures, selling cereal products, processing and selling oil seeds, and storing grain waste. Furthermore, the right is being granted to local ventures to process quarantined weed stock on the condition of using technology which provides deprivation of vitality of quarantine weed plants," the representative said.
