Growtech Eurasia 2014, Antalya, Turkey.

Turkey is a greenhouse giant; flying to Antalya we already see many greenhouses. According to a Rabobank report, the total acreage of numerous Glass and Polyethylene greenhouses together is about 61,000 hectare! That makes Turkey one of the largest greenhouse horticulture producers in the world; Only China and Spain have larger greenhouse areas.
