In October this year, the businessman put into operation a multifunctional modern greenhouse in the foothills of the Uly Balkan mountain range, in which any agricultural crop can be grown year-round. He has planted highly productive varieties of tomatoes on an area of more than four hectares, which allows him to obtain a rich harvest.
