At the end of April 2024, the gross harvest of protected soil vegetables obtained in the Moscow region of Russia amounted to 50,600 tons. This is an increase of 8% compared to the same period last year.

"In the region there are about 15 winter and spring greenhouse complexes, in which cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, cauliflowers, lettuce and radishes are grown. This year more than 33,000 tons of cucumbers and more than 15,000 tons of tomatoes. Every year we increase the production capacity of greenhouse complexes to strengthen the food security of the region," said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Moscow Region, Vladislav Murashov.

The leaders in the production of vegetables from protected soil in the Moscow region are: the Agrokultura group from Kashira (29,377 tons); "Lukhovitsky vegetables" from Lukhovitsy (12,028 tons); and "Mercado Central" from Elektrostal (5,200 tons).

Greenhouse vegetable production continues to grow in Lipetsk region

Since the beginning of the year, 60,600 tons of cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce have been grown in four greenhouse complexes in the region. Last year, in the same period, 59,200 tons were harvested (30,000 tons of cucumbers in 4 months, 29,500 tons of tomatoes and 1,100 tons of lettuce).

The development of greenhouse vegetable cultivation in the region is facilitated by state support.

Thus, in April this year Lipetsk greenhouse vegetable growers received 139 million rubles. These funds will be used to purchase seeds, fertilizers, transport products and pay for the supply of electricity, power, heating and gas.

For several years in a row, the Lipetsk region ranks first in the country in greenhouse vegetable production with a year-round growing cycle.
