The Teplichny state farm in Sakhalin will invest 1 billion rubles in the construction of a greenhouse complex to expand its production. This was announced in his Telegram channel by the governor of the region Valery Limarenko.
Deputy Prime Minister – Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District (FEFD) Yuri Trutnev is on a working trip to Sakhalin. On Friday, together with the head of the region, the plenipotentiary visited the Teplichny state farm.
“This is the largest enterprise in the Sakhalin Region and the Far East for growing vegetables in protected and open ground. Today, the Sakhalin state farm is preparing to expand production. The enterprise plans to invest 1 billion rubles in the construction of a greenhouse complex using modern environmentally friendly technologies,” the governor wrote in his Telegram channel. With the commissioning of a new facility, the range of products will be expanded, production volumes will increase to 10 thousand tons per year. This will provide year-round residents of the region with fresh vegetables, the governor said.
According to the press service of the embassy, a greenhouse complex with an area of 2.9 hectares will be built. The project is provided with the necessary infrastructure facilities – a gas boiler house, water supply and a gas pipeline. The first stage of the greenhouse complex is planned to be put into operation at the end of this year, and the first cucumbers can ripen in the new greenhouse by the New Year holidays.
For several years, the Teplichny state farm, being a resident of the Yuzhnaya priority development area, has implemented a large-scale project for the construction of greenhouses. The automated complex replaced 6 hectares of obsolete greenhouses built in the mid-1980s. Today, on an area of 10 hectares at the state farm, more than 8 thousand tons of protected ground vegetables are grown all year round, on an area of 86 hectares – 4 thousand tons of open ground vegetables, on an area of 105 hectares – more than 3.7 thousand tons of potatoes.
“The development of our own agriculture on the islands is especially relevant today. At a time when a full-fledged hybrid war has been launched against Russia and its economy, limiting our exports and imports, arresting gold and foreign exchange reserves, “cancelling” Russian companies and Russian culture, we must ensure food security in region one hundred percent,” Limarenko added.
Plans for the next five years
According to the embassy, it is planned to invest 5.1 billion rubles in the state farm complex over the next five years. The greenhouse complex will be significantly expanded, a rose garden, service centers, an open-type nursery for growing shrubs and trees, a landscape center, a fruit nursery, as well as a greenhouse complex for growing seedlings of annual and perennial flowers will be built.
