Data from the Institute of Statistics show that during 2018, fresh field and greenhouse production amounted to 1 million and 166 thousand tons, with a growth of 1.25% more output compared to 2017.
Compared over the years, it turns out that the level of domestic agricultural production has come to growing progressively year on year, dominating the growth of greenhouse production.
