The passport for a tomato

More and more people reflect on the health and try to buy local vegetables and fruit, instead of grown up where - that in Turkey on soil generously flavoured with chemicals.

Certainly, business by it with might and main uses. After all the same cucumbers which have been grown up in Moscow suburbs, cost more expensive much more of the foreign. Temptation to give out one for another it is great.

As we are made a fool by the sellers assuring, what their vegetables and fruit local? Than stuff plants for the sake of the prompt reception of profit? Authors of the next program from a cycle « Inhabitancy » have spent big « vegetable investigation ».

Experts « Inhabitancies » among which employees of Rosselhoznadzora, rastenievody, farmers, directors of agroindustrial complexes, will in detail tell, how it to make.
