Experts from the Uvat region got acquainted with the technologies of plantation cultivation of cranberries, lingonberries, blueberries, cloudberries and princes. Colleagues from Kostroma shared their valuable experience on 23 September. Here is the only enterprise in Russia that grows berries on an industrial scale.

A similar project is planned to be implemented in the municipality. However, this is only part of the complex development of the territory.

We are developing and implementing a project for the development of peat deposits in the region. An integrated approach is proposed, which consists in combining various types of activities at these fields. Peat reserves in the region are estimated at 6.7 billion tons. The project provides for its development, production of various products. Peat will also be used for the reclamation of oil sludge and drilling fluids, said Pavel Vaganov, deputy head of the district for economic issues. After development, peat deposits should be reclaimed, for example, through plantation growing of berries. We will grow cranberries, blueberries, American princess and marsh varieties. "

The project for plantation growing of berries is considered promising for the Uvat region, given the proximity of sales markets and the peculiarities of natural and climatic conditions.

Pavel Vaganov emphasized that an agreement was reached on integrating the capabilities of a scientific institution, an operating industrial enterprise and an investor on the start of an investment project for the development, development and reclamation of peat deposits. The district administration has successfully completed the first stage of negotiations. The parties started discussing the terms of cooperation.
