Russia: Baikalsk to build 5 hectare greenhouse complex for veggie and strawberry cultivation
Along with the greenhouse complex it is planned to build an agricultural processing plant. A new farmers market, which is under construction now, will also have an agricultural processing unit on the ground floor. The unit will be also provided with fruit and vegetables produced by local residents, not just farmers.
"Now there are a few large greenhouse complexes in the region, among them "Angara" in Ust-Ilim and "Pursey" in Bratsk. But we have no such enterprises in the south. Vegetables from Khomutovo are of very bad quality. Why don’t we create a large enterprise which would provide residents of the Irkutsk region with quality fresh produce? We have human resources and a suitable climate with moderate winters and summers, here in Baikalsk," said Vasily Temgenevsky.
