Over 3300 hectare slated for 2017

Many new greenhouse vegetable projects and expansions have been announced for 2017. Of these, 134 have been listed in a newly revised publication, all with location, planned area and project contact links.

The list includes projects in 27 countries, totaling 3336 ha. (8186 ac.).

The largest announced increases are in Russia (1482 ha.), followed by the USA (505 ha.), Mexico (328 ha.), Australia (318 ha.), Canada (156 ha.) and The Netherlands (137 ha.)
