In continuation of his working visit, the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon, visited the modern greenhouse of the company MMK Agro in the Bobojon Ghafurov district.
The greenhouse was built on an area of 5 hectares of land, and currently, various types of tomatoes are growing well there. Agricultural products are grown in the greenhouse using hydroponic and organic methods. In the hydroponic section, which is 2.3 hectares of the greenhouse, seed care is carried out automatically using new-generation technology, and the internal temperature is stabilized through the steam system in all seasons of the year.
The organic part, i.e., conventionally grown seeds, makes up half of this greenhouse. Here too, all operations of growing and caring for plants are carried out automatically, and the air temperature is maintained by the radiator method, i.e., artificial heat. In order to perform this operation, a heating device is installed in the organic part of the greenhouse.
Currently, in the greenhouse of “MMK Agro,” mainly Swiss, Turkish, and French varieties of tomatoes are grown. 150 to 180 tons of tomatoes can be harvested from each hectare of greenhouse land, and now the demand for such fresh products is very high in domestic and foreign markets. In this part of the greenhouse, mainly products intended for export are grown and sold in the markets of different countries.
Here, the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon, also visited the exhibition of greenhouse products and gave instructions and advice to farmers to expand their activities.
