The Moscow region’s company Shchelkovo Agrokhim is set to boost the production of plant protection products with the launch of a new workshop. The facility will produce more than 20 thousand tons of products per year – fungicides, insecticides and seed protectants. According to the General Director of the company, Salis Karakotov, the new workshop will increase Russia’s total industrial capacity by 15%.
The area of the facility is almost 5000 sq. m. The expansion of production involved investments totaling 1.8 billion rubles, with 950 million being provided as a preferential loan from the Federal Industrial Development Fund.
