Kuban is among the leaders along with the Moscow and Lipetsk regions. This was announced on April 26 by the Governor of the Krasnodar Territory Veniamin Kondratiev.
“The Krasnodar Territory is 100% self-sufficient in vegetables, including through the development of greenhouse vegetable growing. Since the beginning of the year, farmers have already harvested 17.4 thousand tons of greenhouse cucumbers, tomatoes, greens. This is 200 tons more than in the same period last year. By the end of the year, we plan to increase the production of greenhouse products to 112,000 tons,” Kondratyev said.
It is planned to achieve an increase in indicators through the constant modernization of greenhouses. Today, 11 industrial high-tech complexes operate in the region. Their total area is over 240 hectares. This allows us to provide fresh vegetables all year round not only to residents and guests of the Kuban, but also to supply products to other regions.
Most vegetables are produced by the Dinskoy district. Since the beginning of the year, 9 thousand tons have been harvested there. In addition, enterprises of the Belorechensky and Krasnoarmeysky districts showed good results, the press service of the administration of the Krasnodar Territory reports.
