Spatial distribution of hothouse production in large urban settlement structures is determined by a number of social, economic, environmental, and historical factors as regards its spatial coverage, intensity, and directions of spatial expansion. The most important from among these factors are considered to be: long traditions of horticultural production in towns and suburban zones, size and absorptive power of the market estimated according to the number of non-agricultural population along with its food requirements and purchasing power, institutional forms of hothouse production functioning, size of settlement structures and dynamics of their development, dynamics and directions of spatial expansion, availability of trasport facilities from production site to sale points, and degree of air pollution in heavily urbanized and industrialized zones. Positive or negative influence of particular factors being correlated with one another determines primarily mechanisms of forming territorial systems of hothouse production in heavily urbanized areas. Pull understanding of these mechanisms provides a proper basis for planning and programming of spatial distribution and development of hothouse production in the analyzed areas.
