Yakutia -also known as Sakha- and officially known as the Republic of Yakutia is a federal Russian republic. It had a population of 958,528 at the 2010 census. This republic has started implementing the second stage of phase three of the project to build the Sayuri year-round hothouse complex. It is scheduled to be launched in the third quarter of 2021.
In 2020, the Sayuri company plans to bring in a record harvest — 735 tons of cucumbers, tomatoes and greens, which is 3.5 times more than in 2019. “We have already grown 331.5 tons of vegetables, including 212.81 tons of cucumbers, 203.02 tons of tomatoes and 15.67 tons of greens,” officials told arctic.ru.
Construction of the Sayuri complex is underway in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) with the participation of the Far East and Arctic Development Fund. Cucumbers, tomatoes and greens are being cultivated year-round in the conditions of permafrost and extremely low temperatures for the first time.
