In the opinion of foreign experts, the nutritional value of fruits, vegetables and melons produced in Uzbekistan is high thanks to their richness in sucrose, amino acids that are necessary for life and micronutrients.
In Navoiy Region, too, special attention is being paid to expanding gardens and vineyards and increasing the production of fruits, vegetables and melons. Last year, intensive gardens were created in 232 hectares and vineyards in 191 hectares of land in the region. The overall area of intensive gardens there was increased to 1483 hectares and that of vineyards to 4162 hectares.
