The greenhouse vegetable harvest in Russia in 2022 increased by 7% compared to 2021 and reached a record 1.5 million tons, as stated by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation.
The Ministry stated in a message that "the harvest of cucumbers increased by 2.5% and amounted to 850,000 tons, tomatoes by 7%, to 620,000 tons. Among the leading regions in this segment are the Lipetsk, Moscow, Belgorod, Chelyabinsk regions, Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, the Republics of Mordovia, and Tatarstan, among others."
"The intensive development of the greenhouse industry in Russia is aided by state support measures, in particular, preferential investment loans and stimulating subsidies. In addition, for the regions in the Far East, where the issue of year-round provision of consumers with vegetables is especially relevant, there is a mechanism for compensating part of the costs of building greenhouses."
