Turkmenistan began supplying tomatoes to Tajikistan only in 2020, but has quickly gained market share since then. According to EastFruit, Turkmenistan managed to become the first to export greenhouse tomatoes to Tajikistan, overtaking Uzbek producers of the product.
It should be noted that Turkmen tomatoes also displaced Uzbek suppliers in the Russian market. Thus, according to the results of 2021, Turkmenistan ranked fourth among the largest exporters of tomatoes in Russia.
Greenhouse farming in Turkmenistan is actively developing thanks to concessional lending, allowing entrepreneurs to buy high-quality equipment for their production.
