In recent years, the greenhouse vegetable growing industry in our country has been demonstrating a significant investment boost. During the period from 2014 to 2018, more than 1 thousand hectares of high-tech greenhouses were built and modernized, of which almost 350 hectares in 2018. The total area of greenhouses over the years has increased to 2.5 thousand hectares, which is a quarter higher than in 2014.
Given that the new greenhouses significantly exceed the previously constructed ones in terms of production performance, production volumes increased by 65% compared to 2014.
The gross harvest of greenhouse vegetables in agricultural organizations and farmer enterprises, according to Rosstat, in 2018 amounted to 1.1 million tons. By 2025, it is planned to increase production to at least 1.5 million tons per year.
