Abdukodir Murtazulov, a resident of the former Tashkent makhallya, Sharof Rashidov of the Jizzakh region, earns a good income by turning 2 sockets in his yard into a frozen greenhouse.
The working family began this work in 2000. Since the appearance of tomatoes and seedlings of fresh pepper, family members began working with all the plants grown in the greenhouse.
In 2012, the bank received a loan in the amount of 14 million Soums from a commercial bank, and its capacity expanded after the modernization of the greenhouse. Now it is collected three times a year. In addition, green seedlings also generate additional income.
This year, the family earned 20 million soums, growing 50,000 tomatoes, pumpkins and eggplant seedlings in the greenhouse. After the seedlings were purchased, cucumbers were sown and collected 5 tons. Income from cucumber exceeded 15 million soums. Also, 15 million soums were obtained from growing flower seedlings.
At the moment there are 600 tusks, 21 mandarins, 21 tulip lemon seedlings in the greenhouse. In early spring, 1500 seedlings of different colors, ready for sowing, are cultivated.
“Earth is a farmer’s treasure,” says Abdukodir Murtazulov. – We try to make the most of it. Our saplings and fruits are environmentally friendly, quality is guaranteed. That is why our products come with customers.
In recent years, the number of households in the region that effectively uses land has increased. According to regional farmers, dekhkan farms and the land users committee, last year 409 projects worth 949 million soums were implemented in the houses. Most of these projects are greenhouses. In particular, small loans from a bank within the framework of the program “Every family is an entrepreneur” help to use land effectively.
In the first nine months of this year, 71% of agricultural production was grown in private farms. During this period, private farms produced 36 thousand tons of potatoes, 253 thousand tons of vegetables, 81.2 thousand tons of melons, 36.6 thousand tons of fruits and berries and 105.5 thousand tons of grapes.
This figure will increase even more after the end of the year. Today, this is evidenced by the availability of goods and affordable prices in the domestic market.
