Provision of local greenhouse vegetables by districts of the Russian Federation
Analytical summary on the results of 2020
The year 2020 was very difficult for Russian producers of vegetables in protected soil. The greenhouse business, its income, productivity and implementation of plans were affected by several serious factors at once.
Certainly, the most part of shocks is a lockdown effect on a background of world pandemic COVID-19 and recession of demand. That has led to slowdown of greenhouse business development and refusal of a part of investors from building of new industrial greenhouses. Moreover, in a number of regions of the Russian Federation in 2020 for the first time in many years, working greenhouses were forced to reduce the volume of their production due to the decline in demand, and some enterprises stopped their economic activity at all.
