The first greenhouse project, already under construction, is being built in the Al-Kharj region, and it will be suitable for year-round fresh vegetable production. The total greenhouse area of this first project will be divided in six greenhouses with a central packaging and technical area as well as a growing compartment to grow young vegetable plants. Greenhouse project two and three will start at the end of this year.
