Russia: Construction of 40 hectare agro-park in Kamchatka already at first stage

According to the press service of the Government of the Kamchatka Territory, the Association "Greenhouses of Russia" will help create greenhouse complex of agro-industrial park "Nagorniy" in Yelizovsky district. "The Kamchatka Territory almost completely provides itself with open ground vegetables (potatoes, cabbage, beets, carrots), but it is heavily dependent on imports of greenhouse vegetables, " said Deputy Director General of "Development Corporation of Kamchatka" Ruslan Fesenko. The concept of agro-park "Nagorniy" envisages the construction of modern greenhouses on the area of ​​40 hectares already at the first stage.

According to Ruslan Fesenko, agro-park "Nagorniy", being located far from centres of commerce and in a harsh climate, is a promising project, because it has a big consumer market. Production costs will account just up to 35% of the final cost of greenhouse products. Modern greenhouse vegetable production is a high-tech manufacture which allows to recoup all costs fast and the Kamchatka Territory is no exception.

Arkady Muravyov, the president of the Association "Greenhouses of Russia", promised to provide local farmers with greenhouse construction project documentation free of charge. In addition, the Association is ready to share its experience how to use domestic equipment required to operate and maintain greenhouses.

Reference: Association "Greenhouses of Russia" was established in 1994. The Association consists of 189 companies, including 109 greenhouse complexes with a total area over 1.5 thousand hectares of winter glass greenhouses. Annual production of greenhouse vegetables is more than 600 thousand tons in the off-season period.
