Farming enterprise GADZ
Gadz farming enterprise was established on October 20, 2011 and specializes in fruit growing.
Between 2012 and 2016, more than 600 hectares of garden were planted with seedlings grown in Europe. In the future, it is planned to increase the area of the garden to 2,5 thousand hectares, in addition a nursery of fruit trees with an area of 50 hectares has been laid. It is planned to produce 1 million seedlings each year.
Elements of technology are the use of dwarf rootstocks, new productive varieties, drip irrigation and keeping the garden on the trellis. The main apple varieties are: Gala, Red Cheat, Golden Delicious, Red John Prince, Aidared, Fuji, Champion, as well as other intense varieties; pear - Conference, plum - Stanley.
In 2013, the farm put into operation a storage facility, and in 2015 a modern refrigeration and sorting complex with a total area of 5250 m2 was built, which houses a sorting line of the Sorter company, which allows sorting an apple by caliber, color and weight.
And in December 2016, a refrigerated complex with regulated gas environment (RGS) with a capacity of 6.5 thousand tons of storage was opened.
The construction of the next stages of a 40,000-tonne regulated gas storage facility with a more powerful sorting line and infrastructure for fruit and berry processing is planned today.
