Core Tip: Russia chose increased imports of tomatoes from Uzbekistan in the first half of 2018.
 Russia chose increased imports of tomatoes from Uzbekistan in the first half of 2018. Imports of tomatoes increased to about 410,000 tons; 17 percent more than in the same period of 2017.
At the same time, Uzbekistan increased the export of fresh tomatoes to Russia by three times during the reporting period.
For the first six months of 2018, as many as 14,500 tons of Uzbek tomatoes reached the Russian market. This amount accounts for about 3.5 percent of total imports of these products to the country. A year earlier, Uzbekistan's share in the supply of tomatoes to the Russian market in the first half of the year was 1.3 percent.
According to East-Fruit analysts, the main advantage of Uzbekistan is the opportunity to supply inexpensive tomatoes from unheated greenhouses covered with film already in May, when the prices for tomatoes in Russia are still very high. 
Azernews.az reports how at this time, there is a local tomato from heated greenhouses, as well as greenhouse products from Turkey, Iran, Morocco and Armenia in the Russian market.
