Armenia: Commercial strawberry project to meet the demand of local production

Armenia’s vegetable and fruit production is growing rapidly. In the first half of 2015, the country has already exported 24,600 tons fruit and vegetables. That’s over 1,000 tons more than in 2014. The minister of agriculture in Armenia expects that the crop volumes and export will drastically grow by the end of the year. At this point the most import products for Armenia are cherries, tomatoes and cucumbers.

There is not much strawberry production yet, but we can already see this changing. The country itself has a perfect climate for the production of strawberries. The growing demand for local fruit and vegetables and the growing demand from Russia is playing a role in the movement in strawberry production. Armenia is very interested in the knowledge and craftsmanship of Dutch companies, to help them get the best results out of their crop.

Last month Meteor Systems completed one of the first strawberry projects in Armenia with a custom made growing system and irrigation system for their climate. This shows the country has a need for quality systems and advice from Dutch companies.
