KUBO is always adding ‘new’ countries to the world map. The construction of a project in the Khorezm region means that Uzbekistan is now also on our map. The area in the west of the country - 32 million residents - will be getting an Ultra-Clima greenhouse of 5.5 hectares.
The largely Muslim Uzbekistan in Central Asia is aiming for rapid modernisation of its horticulture. Covered growing still takes place in simple greenhouse constructions, generally originating from countries such as China and North Korea. This only delivers modest harvests. Horticulture in Uzbekistan needs to gradually take the place of tradition cotton growing, which has a high water consumption and low returns.
