 During the period of domestic market transformations the majority of scientific papers have touched repeatedly the problem of fundamental reforms of the established but imperfect model of management of the agro-industrial complex. The causes of this phenomenon were analyzed, particular mechanisms of changes were proposed. The papers criticized a priori unreal strategic arrangements within the priority project for development of the agro-industrial complex. Many scientistsagrarians as well as the Ministry of agriculture of the RF try to solve this problem through formation and development of agro-industrial clusters that in accordance with their opinion let to overcome disunity between departments in management of agriculture and rural areas. It is very urgent under the modern difficult conditions of sanction measures and contradictory relations with the WTO. There are no particular and typical mechanisms concerning formation and development of clusters. However, the process of their formation and development can be taken as a basis for formation of agro-industrial clusters involving a foreign theory of clusterization, which has the following fundamental components: particular advantages achieved through innovations; institutionalism which characterizes agroeconomics within the interrelated institutions (a mechanism of governmental support of the agrarian sector, the system of governmental orders and the legislative base within the land relations); evolutionary development which influences interregional food interactions. Considering the agroholding sphere as a main format of integration in the agro-industrial complex, we think that it should get preference in first stage of the process of formation of a territorial agrarian cluster. Exactly at the first step “the core” of a cluster is formed, which involves for example grain producers, mixed fodder plants, poultry farms, a cooperative wholesale-and-retail sphere with financing of governmental order. The authors of this paper propose their algorithm of actions to smooth negative moments while forming and functioning of the territorial agrarian clusters.
