An entrepreneur from the city of Ferghana in Uzbekistan has established the production of microgreens in the basement of a multi-storey block. He supplies them to local cafes, restaurants, and supermarkets, EastFruit experts report.

The total area of the premises where entrepreneur Tokhirjon Abdusamatov grows 30 types of microgreens is only 60 sq.m.. Seeds of 15 types of microgreens from this range are produced in Uzbekistan, and seeds of other types are imported from Europe. The sales system has also been established – he supplies microgreens to local cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, and buyers from other cities, Tashkent, Bukhara, and Samarkand, the press service of the Fergana region administration says.

The total cost of the project amounted to 250 million UZS ($22 000 at the exchange rate of the Central Bank of Uzbekistan as of February 9, 2023). Of this amount, 150 million UZS ($13 200) are the entrepreneur’s own funds, and 100 million UZS ($8 800) is a preferential bank loan.

According to the entrepreneur, further plans include the use of the basements of other multi-storey buildings to establish the production of microgreens there and create a cooperative.

We remind you that in November 2022, EastFruit wrote that in the city of Andijan, the administrative center of the Andijan region of Uzbekistan, a greenhouse was built on the roof of a four-story building of a private school. The total area of the greenhouse, where hydroponics technology is used for the production of vegetables and berries, is 4.5 acres and it brings income to its owners of 170 million UZS ($15 100) per year.
