Residents of Mastchi grow vegetables, herbs and citrus fruits in small greenhouses in their personal plots

Farmers in the Mastchinsky district (Tajikistan) are increasingly growing vegetables not in open fields, but in greenhouses. In 2019 alone, another 30 new greenhouses began to function in the district, and now their total number has reached 119.

On the farms of this virgin region, farmers mainly use Chinese-type greenhouses and grow mainly tomatoes, cucumbers, and in recent years lemons.

Currently, the greenhouses in the district occupy a total of 11 hectares, from which almost 600 tons of vegetables and lemons were collected and put up for sale last year. In the starting year, the district’s greenhouses plan to bring this figure to 800 tons, and next year to 1,000 tons. Farmers in the region only a few years ago began to master the technology of greenhouse production of vegetables and citrus fruits, but they were already able to verify the advantages of this method of production, which makes it possible to obtain yields of vitamin products all year round, regardless of weather conditions.

With the restoration of the visa-free regime of movement of citizens of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, Tajik farmers got the opportunity to learn from farmers in the greenhouses of their colleagues in the Tashkent region, which borders the Mastchinsky district, in greenhouses.

Mastchi villagers grow vegetables, herbs and citrus fruits in small greenhouses in their personal plots.

A resident of the district, Khayyem Hofizov, first grew tomatoes in a greenhouse, then planted seedlings of lemons between plants. Now they have grown and for the second year they have entered the period of fruiting. The farmer is satisfied with the harvest, and now plans to specialize in the production of lemons.
