Russian greenhouse tests new cucumber variety

The greenhouse complex TyumenAgro have tested a new variety of a short cucumber, Valigora, in the new premises of the third greenhouse phase.

Valigora is an early-ripening seedless salad cucumber, planted by the greenhouse growers specifically for the dwellers of the Tyumen region. Therefore, the production volume is currently limited. As the specialists note, the variety is not entirely new to TyumenAgro, but it has never been planted before. It was included in the state registrar of the Russian Federation for growing in winter greenhouses with supplemental lighting in 2019.

LLC GC TyumenAgro is one of the few contemporary greenhouse complexes in the Urals. Vegetable growing is carried out by means of low volume hydroponics with the application of water dripping systems, CO2 fertilization, artificial lighting and microclimate management.

In summer 2020, LLC TyumenAgro launched the third phase of the greenhouse complex in the Namarinovo village (Tyumen region) with a production capacity of 17 ha with all engineering equipment for year-round vegetable production. It is planned that the volume of vegetable production should comprise 14 thousand tons of vegetables per year, once the projected capacity is reached.

In accordance with the preliminary calculations, after the project is completed TyumenAgro will fully meet the local need in fresh vegetables and greenery.
