Makhachkala, October 7, 2014. Daghestan minister of agriculture and food supply Battal Battalov visited one of the successfully implemented investment projects – the "Niva" agricultural cooperative, a source in the ministry told RIA "Dagestan".
The project aims at building on 12 hectares a modern greenhouse complex supplied with the latest equipment, innovative technical systems applying advanced scientific technologies of growing vegetables which are used in the greenhouse business in advanced agricultural countries: Turkey, Netherlands, France, Israel, and Spain.
B. Battalov saw a 2.6-hectare greenhouse in Krasnoarmeysk village. The greenhouse employs low-volume technology for growing vegetables in coconut substrate with applying drip irrigation to get high yields. Here, vegetables get enough nutrients from a mineral solution in appropriate amounts and precise proportions. Hydroponics allows for environmentally friendly products, accelerated growth and increased productivity due to the enhanced physiological process.
The greenhouse is expected to yield fresh vegetables all the year round - 40 tons per 1,000 m2 a year. The total cost of building the 1,000 m2 greenhouse is RUB 5 million.
The whole project involves building small 1,000 m2 greenhouses for private farms and family farmsteads. It can be implemented both in cities and mountainous areas. The increased vegetables production will help the country overcome the import dependence, which is one of the goals set by Daghestan priority project titled "Efficient agriculture".
