The Bereście plant in Belarus wraps up the import substitution project with greenhouse modernization

Belarus is witnessing a revolution in its agricultural sector, particularly in greenhouse farming, as the Bereście Plant concludes its import substitution endeavor by revamping its facilities. In ten greenhouse complexes across the country, cucumbers are already flourishing under supplementary lighting, with the installation of modern lamps in tomato greenhouses underway.

OJSC "Greenhouse Complex Bereście," the major player in the Brest region's vegetable greenhouse market, anticipates a significant boost in production capacity. After modernizing four hectares of greenhouses, the plant aims to supply up to two thousand tons of cucumbers and tomatoes to retail chains during winter.

With over 20 varieties of vegetables cultivated at the Bereście Greenhouse Complex, including tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and greens, the modernization effort signifies a leap forward in agricultural technology. The adoption of soilless cultivation methods, protected by multiple patents since 2001, has ensured efficient nutrient delivery to the plants.

Tatiana Baychikova, the chief agronomist, highlights the introduction of new tomato hybrids and popular cucumber varieties, all of which are set to meet consumer demand. Implementing LED lighting systems has also led to significant energy savings and improved crop yields.

The modernization initiative, funded through credit resources as part of the State Program "Agricultural Business" for 2021-2025, is nearing completion. While contractors finalize installations, production continues uninterrupted, ensuring a steady supply of fresh vegetables to the market.
