Today the transplanting of tomato seedlings has begun. All of the spring fieldworks are carried out as planned. Installation of drip irrigation system is underway at all Agrofusion units.
The 2019 season started earlier due to the experimental tomatoes sowing. On 60 hectares, we are going to plant tomatoes inside the winter rye hedge (two rows of rye spaced 40 cm apart). This method should protect the seedlings in case of light frosts.
This year, the tomato planted area is 7 600 hectares, which is 15% more than previous season. We will grow and process 740 000 mT of tomatoes, about 7 000 mT of which are organic.
