Russia: New high tech greenhouses for Surazhevka

The construction of new high-tech greenhouses for dozens of crops is being completed in Surazhevka, Russia. The reconstruction and construction of up-to-date greenhouses for year round cultivation of vegetables comes is almost completed. It is planned to almost double the supply of cucumbers and other crops to the Primorye shops, which will help fight against the main competitor - vegetables from China.

The new greenhouses of FSUE "Dalnevostochnoye" will cover 18 hectares. Already well known for their tasty cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, fennel, parsley, green salads are to be grown here. According to the director of the enterprise Vladimir Sidorenko, the new complex will provide everything in the best interest of the plants.

"Heat consumption in the new complex will be half less than in the greenhouses of previous generation, although productivity will be twice as much. This will be achieved through the introduction of new technologies: a special "shading" system to be employed to save heat and diffuse light in bright sunshine in the summer. It's expensive, but thanks to the federal and regional programs to support agricultural producers, we have managed to invest money in the industry. In addition, each plant needs a certain area for high yield, so we increased distance between plants,"- said Vladimir Sidorenko.

Special solution with mineral fertilizers is used for watering plants in greenhouses of FSUE "Dalnevostochnoye"; the solution circulates several times. Smart machines collect all unused water, disinfect it, add the required amount of minerals and use it for irrigating again. The new technologies made it possible to immediately increase the harvest of cultivated vegetables.

The regional program of agricultural development for 2013-2020 should help to cover expenses for construction and reconstruction of greenhouses, vegetable storage facilities and livestock farms. In 2012, 828.55 million rubles (19 ml €) was allocated from the regional budget to support local agricultural producers. This is 109.6% more compared to the year 2011.
