Supplementary lighting is required to ensure recoupment

Significant fund was invested in the production of tomatoes for the last three years. Turkish tomatoes will affect the profitability of new facilities, says Alexey Konovalov, head of Teplitsy Kubani Association. “We have big market players who invested heavily in the construction of greenhouse complexes. Growth rate is 150-200 ha annually. “Sanctions facilitated the construction of greenhouse complexes and now, after their lifting, investors have tough time – vegetable production will require larger investment.

“As for support, we have the policy of the Russian Ministry of Agriculture on the partial reimbursement of 20% direct expenditure incurred. But this is not enough», he added.

“Here in Russia we can produce tomatoes only using supplementary lighting. This is not required in Turkey. That is why the prime cost of Turkish tomatoes is lower, we can hardly compete with them”, said the expert.
