For the first time since 2002, the greenhouse area used for tomato cultivation increased in 2012 compared with the year before. Tomato was cultivated on 421 000 square meters, which represents an increase by 20 % since 2011, and was the largest area used for tomato cultivation since 2008. Greenhouse cultivation of cucumber also increased by 8 % between 2011 and 2012, to a total of 656 300 square meters. The aggregate cultivation of aromatic plants and potted lettuce maintained the continuous increase in greenhouse area used seen since 2002, reaching 166 200 square meters in 2012. This represents an increase by 13 % since 2011, and 75 % since 2002.
The production of cucumber and aromatic plants increased by 7 and 50 %, respectively between 2011 and 2012, while the production of tomatoes remained unchanged and the production of potted lettuce decreased by 41 % during the same period. The decrease in tomato production was likely an effect of an ongoing change in tomato assortment, towards an increased share of small tomatoes.
The largest area used for any of the investigated crops was the 2 225 hectares used for strawberry cultivation, while the largest crop from a production point-of-view was carrot, of which 128 700 metric tons were produced.
Open ground cultivation of the investigated crops exhibited few apparent differences compared with 2011. The cultivated areas for white cabbage and leeks decreased by 12 and 36 %, respectively, to 376 and 116 hectares. In addition, leek production decreased by 37 % to 2 800 metric tons, while the production of onions increased by 37 % to 50 400 metric tons.
