Greenhouses worth 430 million tenge launched in Karaganda region

In the village of Trudovoe, in the Karaganda region of Kazakhstan, the construction of a greenhouse complex for growing cucumbers with a capacity of up to a thousand tons per year on a total area of ​​14.3 thousand square meters was completed in last month. The total cost of the project amounted to 430 million tenge.

The construction of the complex began in 2018. With financing from the Agrarian Credit Corporation, a greenhouse entrepreneur received a loan from a local credit partnership and installed two heating boilers and a drip irrigation system in the greenhouse. The first greenhouse was located on an area of ​​50 acres, which began to supply its products to Karaganda residents. In 2020, at the expense of credit funds received from the Beybarys CT, a second greenhouse for 96 acres was built. The total yield of cucumbers obtained in 2020 amounted to 160 tons.

Last year, the entrepreneur attracted another loan from ACC in the amount of 350 million tenge for the construction of the third greenhouse, which was put into operation this year.

“We settled on seedlings of the Tantu variety. We plant seedlings twice a year, we harvest 8-9 months a year. The close location of the farm to the regional center allowed to reduce transportation costs. We sell cucumbers in bulk, the sale goes on the Shygys market. We grow seedlings ourselves, in a separate block. Racks with hydroponic installations are installed here, the necessary microclimate is maintained. If now the annual volume of cultivated cucumbers is 450 tons, in the future we plan to reach the design capacity of up to 1000 tons per year,” businessman Batyr Darmenov said.
