Kazakhstan: Palm trees and citrus fruit are grown in greenhouses

Dutch roses and palm trees grow in South Kazakhstan. Seeded and germinated in the greenhouse complex YUKO, they are replanted into the open ground. The complex is fast developing, and more and more new greenhouses and orchards are being set out. There is also a large mushroom spawn of organic shiitake mushrooms that yields all year round.

Besides, even the plantations of lemons can be found in this greenhouse. They bear fruit only in these specific conditions. Unlike palm trees, which have adapted to the local climate and now can grow in the gardens.
The complex occupies 5 hectares. And it is well-supported by the government – each of the two annual harvests is subsidized for 20 500 Euro per hectare from the national budget.

The financial support helps us to develop and expand the complex. We have recently planted an orchard with apples, pears, and quinces. In future we plan to set out a small vineyard and to build 13 more greenhouses, - Natalya Sedykh, the director of the complex has said.
