During the last year’s trip of the Head of the country to Andijan region, a presentation of project on organization of modern greenhouse was held. Accordingly, 2 greenhouses were organized on 5,8 hectares of land for growing bananas and tomatoes by intensive method with the help of loans worth 1.5 million dollars allocated by the district branch of Asaka Bank. According to the contract signed with “Asya Modern Serachilik” of Turkey, modern equipment has been installed in the greenhouse.
