The Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Moscow Region Sergei Voskresensky on September 6, after reconstruction, will open a large potato storage facility in the Taldomsky urban district of the Moscow Region.
"Agrofirm" Bunyatino "has completed the implementation of a project for the reconstruction of a potato storage in the Taldomsky urban district. The total area of reconstruction is 5 sq. M. The volume of investments in the facility is 188 million rubles, ”said Sergei Voskresensky.
Outdoor vegetables, in particular potatoes, are seasonal products. As the minister noted, since providing the population with vegetables is a year-round task, it is necessary to operate an established storage system.
“Providing the population with vegetables all year round is possible with a well-established storage system. The capacity of the new potato storage is 10 tons. At present, there are 360 potato storages in the Moscow region with a total capacity of 205 thousand tons, many of them meet the modern requirements for storing potatoes, ”stressed Sergei Voskresensky.
JSC "Agrofirm" Bunyatino "is a part of the group of companies" Dmitrovskie vegetables ", which is the largest closed-cycle vegetable holding in the region.
“Last year, the volume of potato production in the Moscow region amounted to about 290 thousand tons. Of these, about 33 thousand tons were produced by "Dmitrovskie vegetables", and this is more than 10% of the production in the region. This year they planted potatoes on an area of 1,2 thousand hectares and are now starting to actively harvest, "added Sergei Voskresensky in conclusion.
