63 tons of rice seeds were distributed to 75 farmers in Diyarbakır

63 tons of rice seeds were distributed to 75 farmers in Çınar, Çermik, Bağlar, Hazro, Ergani and Yenişehir districts within the scope of the “Development and Expansion of Karacadağ Paddy Production” project of the Metropolitan Municipality and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.

Speaking at the ceremony held in front of the Metropolitan Municipality Ali Emiri Meeting Hall, Governor Münir Karaloğlu said that Diyarbakır is one of the country’s strategic provinces in agricultural production and animal husbandry.

“Our new hard-shell fruit orchard of 15 thousand hectares has been formed”

Noting that they have always taken the side of the farmer and implemented important projects, Karaloğlu said:

“Our hard-shell fruit project, which we have been implementing for 2 years, will end with the autumn planting of 2022. Our new hard-shelled fruit orchard of approximately 15 thousand hectares has been formed. We will have brought 420 thousand saplings to the soil in only 3 fruit groups, walnut, pistachio and almond. We distributed about 80 thousand mulberry saplings. We have brought together more than 500 thousand saplings related to silk cocoon production and silkworm breeding with our farmers.”

Reminding that Diyarbakır is one of the important production centers for red lentils, Karaloğlu stated that they will support the farmers with red lentil seeds in autumn.

“Karacadağ paddy is an endemic product that has received geographical indication of our city. Karaloğlu continued his words as follows:

“We saw that last year, the paddy cultivation areas decreased due to a severe drought, and this year there is a partial drought. We, as the Metropolitan Municipality, cooperate with the Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry, and with the contribution of our farmers, we bring the rice seeds together with our farmers. May God increase the abundance of the world and humanity. “The biggest problem is safe, sustainable food. These are important concepts. Now we have to make good use of every square centimeter we find. We have to make bread. That’s why we will continue to support our precious farmer, by Allah’s leave.”

AK Party Deputies Mehdi Eker, Oya Eronat, Ebubekir Bal, Agriculture and Forestry Director Mustafa Ertan Atalar and farmers attended the program.
