Permsky seeks to receive state support

Dmitry Mahonin, the governor of the Perm region, held a meeting on the construction of the Permsky greenhouse complex on the territory of the Chusovoy district. As the press service of the Perm government reported, the first crop from the complex is already expected this year. Dmitry Mahonin also noted that several investment projects are implemented in the region. One of them is the Permsky greenhouse complex.

“We get to the new level of growing vegetables, which will provide a regional population with local products all year round. At the same time, this type of vegetable production doesn’t suppose receiving governmental support. Therefore, I entrusted the Ministry of Agriculture of the Perm region to consider the option of subsidies for such an enterprise,” said Dmitry Mahonin.

According to Dmitry Shashikashvili, General Director of the Permsky complex, the implementation of the project is going as planned.

“We plan to complete the construction of the complex by the end of 2020 and to reach its design capacity by 2022. Some units of the greenhouse will be commissioned in the third quarter of the year, others in the fourth,” Dmitry Shashikashvili explained. “Thus, already in December, we plan to get the first crop of vegetables on the closed ground.”

Tomatoes and cucumbers will be grown all year round in the greenhouse complex of a total area of 24.5 hectares. The implementation of the project will provide the population of the Perm region with vegetables of more than 20 thousand tons per year.
