Half of Russian greenhouse vegetables is harvested in the Volga and Central Federal Districts

The largest contribution to the greenhouse horticulture in Russia is traditionally brought by the Volga Federal District of the Russian Federation. In 2015, the Volga greenhouses cultivated and sold, according to the Federal State Statistics Service, more than 230 thousand tons of tomatoes, cucumbers, greeneries and other vegetables.
The Central Federal District ranks second in terms of greenhouse vegetables, according to the analysts of “Technology of Growth”: it accounts for almost 1/5 of the harvest from the protected ground. At the year-end of 2015, the gross yield of greenhouses in CFD was 136 thousand tons of vegetables and greens.

Thus, in the central part of Russia and in the Volga region almost half of greenhouse vegetables and greeneries of Russia is grown. The role of other regions of Russia in greenhouse vegetable production is much smaller and reaches from 7% to 16%. The contribution of the Crimean greenhouses in the nationwide protected ground yield was only 1% in the last year.
