In 2018, EcoInvest made the decision to invest in a major 11Ha polyhouse in Kazakhstan. Their ambition: to grow tomatoes all year round for the local market and export to Russia. This was their first major greenhouse investment and they asked Netafim to provide support and expertise at every step of the project: from financing and design to execution and operation.
The result is a truly cutting-edge greenhouse project delivering continuous, profitable, and sustainable growing conditions 365 days a year despite Kazakhstan’s -200 winters and +400 summers. In just 12 months the project was up and running. In its first year of full operation, the polyhouse has delivered 5,000 tonnes of fresh tomatoes at 50kg/m2.
