MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the institutions of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, there are greenhouses with a total area of 26.5 thousand m2.
Greenhouse farms grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants and greens. Fresh and salted vegetables are sent to canteens for convicts, sold to employees, and sold at food fairs.
The largest greenhouse facility is located in LIU-37 (Sosnovoborsk). The area of the closed ground in this institution is 16 thousand m2. The harvest of fresh cucumbers is already estimated in tons. Today, more than 13.7 tons of environmentally friendly products have been collected here.
Specialists of the GUFSIN of Russia in the Krasnoyarsk Territory use both traditional methods of growing vegetables and the latest achievements of agronomic science in agricultural activities. The development of plant growing in the institutions of the regional penitentiary department allows creating additional jobs for convicts and diversifying the prison menu.
