The investor from Poland is ready to facilitate the project called Sady Smolenshchiny, which stipulates for establishing the intensive fruit-tree orchard.
Project investment totals 160m RUB.
European agrarians have long ago adopted intensive technologies, providing for higher yield per hectare, thus reducing production cost. This approach is expected to be uptaken in the Smolensk region.
Besides the polish know-how, the project will be supported by partners from the Rostov region, who will provide the seed stock already fully adapted to the Russian climate.
At the first phase (Aug-Sep 2018) around 10 ha will be set out. The areas will grow by 10-20 ha annually depending on the variety survival. The first yield is scheduled for after a year.
The project will be carried out at two sites: as of 60 and 45 ha.
The second phase comprises a CA fruit storage facility design engineering and construction. The storage capacity is projected at 2000 t.
The first phase will allow 10 job opportunities, while upon reaching the designed capacity the number will be boosted up to 150-200, mainly Smolensk residents.
