Large in-vitro production of seedlings has been established in the Bukhara region (Uzbekistan)

The greenhouse complex of the Uzbek-Turkish joint venture Bukhara-Varnet LLC, located in the Bukhoro-Agro Free Economic Zone, is one of the largest projects in greenhouse production using hydroponics technology in the region. Mainly tomatoes are grown in modern greenhouses with a total area of about 40 hectares. In 2022, the company exported greenhouse products worth almost $2 million, EastFruit experts report.

The in-vitro production of seedlings has been recently established in the greenhouse complex. Seedlings of tomato and fruit trees such as peaches, apples, and cherries are grown in the nursery on 3 hectares, in special conditions and microclimate. The annual production capacity of the nursery is 90 million seedlings, “Khalq suzi” (“People’s word”) reports.
