Those plants that was launched in late 2018, in 2019 passed the stage of formation, and in 2020 - has reached capacity and give maximum performance. Secondly, we managed to minimize the impact of the pandemic on greenhouse production, as businesses continued to work non-stop," - said Alexey Sitnikov.
According to the Ministry of agriculture, by the end of 2020 it is expected a new record - at least 1.25 million tons of the crop. "Indeed, the production figures this year will be exceeded by 25-30% in comparison with the previous year. In the first quarter, the growth yield was 38%. Second, this growth has declined due to poor weather: for the first time in the last 15 years, we are faced with the minimum volume of solar energy and conventional technologies without the use of lighting, there was a decline. However, the fourth quarter will show significant growth due to space supplementary lighting," commented Sitnikov.
