Vesti FM radio station released the Polnyi Contact program issue with Andrey Danilenko sharing his impressions after visiting Solnechnyi Dar greenhouse complex, a project by ECO-Culture agricultural holding. The issue was dedicated to greenhouse vegetable production in Stavropol Krai.
The guest to be interviewed was Andrey Danilenko, the head of the agro-industrial committee of the All-Russian public organization Delovaya Rossiya. He shared his impressions about the trip he took the Solnechnyi Dar greenhouse complex together with the camera crew of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company and Nikolay Velikdan, the First Deputy Prime Minister of Stavropol Krai. The guests have learned about modern indoor grow and harvest technologies. Vladimir Baranenkov, the Executive Director of the Solnechny Dar Ltd., has demonstrated the greenhouse complex features to the guests.
As Andrey noted in the interview, the name of the complex speaks for itself: “The moment you get there, you start feeling the positive energy and good vibes”. The speaker admitted that he didn’t expect the greenhouse-grown tomatoes to have such quality and excellent taste. Danilenko was also pleasantly surprised by the modern technologies used there, and the lack of pesticides in producing the product. That really means that the vegetables are eco-friendly in the full sense. As Andrey also mentioned, he managed to meet some of the special “employees” of the complex, responsible for biological protection against pests: the Macrolofus bugs, which devour pests thereby preventing the use of chemicals. The greenhouse complex is also equipped with a computerized climate control system.
“Tomato that tastes like tomato is no longer a fantasy”, — Andrey and Anna Shafran summarized, happily.
In the winter-cycle greenhouses, they grow primarily cherry and cocktail tomatoes, which are especially popular among the consumers.
Right now, the agri-holding is actively expanding its production capacities while implementing a large-scale investment program that includes the building of modern high-tech greenhouse complexes in Russia for the provision of fresh and high-quality vegetables around a year. Projects like this one not only contribute to the import substitution of the key agricultural products but address the challenges of social and economic development in the regions. In particular, they allow to create new jobs, develop the infrastructure, and increase tax revenues.
