Russia: New greenhouse complex opened in Sakhalin

A new greenhouse complex was launched in the south of Sakhalin (Russia). It will provide the residents of the Nevel and Holmsk areas with tomatoes and greenery.
The automated greenhouse complex of 3 ha with frost and wind resistant poly has been built using Italian technology. It is expected to produce 1.35 thousand tons of fresh tomatoes a year. One square meter will yield 40-45 kilos.

The greenhouse has been built with 12.5 million euros of private investments. Currently seedlings are being prepared for planting in the main greenhouse block, and the first crops of organic produce are expected at the end of October of the current year. According to the chief agronomist, Ms. Irina Tkachenko, customers will be able to enjoy Merlice tomatoes of Dutch selection and Pink Paradise of Japanese selection as well as the local Rosario and Tachanka varieties.

Local residents will be the first to taste the greenhouse produce. For that, a special trade pavilion will be built in the regional centre.

The greenhouse opening is a big step for the economic development of the Nevel area. Annual tax paid to the local budget will amount to 439.5 thousand euros. Also, the investment project allowed for the creation of 50 working places, to be fulfilled by local residents and specialists from the Krasnodar region.

For the first half of 2018, more than 4 thousand tons of greenhouse vegetables have been produced. The provision of locals with greenhouse vegetables has reached 82%. It is expected that by 2020 the demands of Sakhalin and the Kuril islands will be fully satisfied by means of local production.
