Practically every family in Altyaryk grows grapes.

Hardworking Altyaryk residents, competing for creativity, created an improvised greenhouse, using the latest methods of storing grapes in a bottle.

After the visit of the leader of State Sh. Mirziyoyev to the Fergana Valley in May 2019, the district administration was instructed to gradually reduce the area of grain crops in the Altyaryk district by 3,000 hectares and create vineyards in this place.
