Russian cucumber and gherkin production up by 14%

The total production of cucumbers and gherkins in Russia has grown by 14%, from 1.70 million tons to 1.94 million tons, as reported by RBC, citing data from the "Analysis of the cucumber and gherkin market in Russia," prepared by BusinesStat.

In general, for the years 2014-2016, the production of cucumbers and gherkins in both the open ground and indoors has increased annually.

Cucumbers and gherkins grown in the open ground still keep a dominant share of the total production; however, that share has been falling annually. Thus, in 2013, they accounted for 62.8% of the total volume, and in 2017 this figure had already dropped to 53.7%. The share of greenhouse vegetable products, on the contrary, has increased during the period at hand, from 37.2% of the total gross yield to 46.3%.

According to analysts at BusinesStat, in the next 4 years, production of cucumbers and gherkins in Russia will increase annually by 3.0-3.7%. By 2022, the figure will reach 2.28 million tons and exceed the level of 2017 by 17.8%. According to the forecast, the production of cucumbers and gherkins in greenhouses will grow at a higher rate than those cultivated in the open ground. In 2022, the gross harvest of cucumbers and gherkins in greenhouses will reach 53.9% of the total, while the gross harvest in the open ground will be 46.1%, respectively.
