Eating a ripe tomato
“My mom grows the most delicious tomatoes!” Bokhtar district, Khatlon province, Tajikistan. USAID Family Farming Program constructed ten sets of greenhouses in four districts of Khatlon province. 420 people, primarily landless households, benefitted from the greenhouses. The greenhouse program produced 59 metric tons of early tomatoes, of which 44 metric tons were sold at market and 15 metric tons were consumed or stored for winter use by the individual greenhouse owners. Greenhouse farmers increased their profits by approximately 34 percent in one planting season.
