Abstract: The article considers a set of factors affecting the competitiveness of agricultural products of the Russian Federation: the average prices of producers, average export prices, production and exports. The analysis showed that since the introduction embargo on the import of agricultural products and food from a number of countries to the territory of the Russian Federation in 2014, the competitiveness of domestic products has increased significantly. This trend was due to the depreciation of the national currency, as well as the relatively favourable market conditions, which allowed increasing the volume of production and exports of agricultural products. At the same time, the analysis of price competitiveness factors revealed the increasing imbalances in the price relations between the agri-industrial sectors, which have a negative impact on the sustainable development of agriculture and the attraction of additional investment resources in the industry. The task of investment development, import substitution and increasing the volume of non-oil exports, it is necessary to search for new growth factors aimed at qualitative changes in production. One of the ways of increasing competitiveness of AIC - introducing digital technologies in agriculture, which will improve productivity and speed up technical and technological updates, increase the competitiveness of agriculture.
