The Ankara Metropolitan Municipality continues to support farmers in the capital with supports that will ensure rural development. Following diesel, seed and seedling support, ABB is now providing liquid fertilizer support to enable domestic growers to get more efficiency from their farmland. As the distribution of liquid fertilizer produced by BelPLAS AŞ will start in Polatlı district, the nature-friendly liquid fertilizer will be distributed to 50,50 farmers who plant barley and wheat in the first place.
Ankara Metropolitan Municipality continues to diversify its aid for rural development in order to increase the efficiency and quality of agriculture in the capital and to contribute economically to domestic producers.
After supporting diesel, chickpea and vegetable seedlings to growers in the capital, ABB has now started providing liquid fertilizer support with a 50% subsidy and a 50% farmer contribution.
As the distribution of liquid fertilizers produced by BelPLAS AŞ, one of the Metropolitan Municipality’s subsidiaries, will begin in Polatlı District, liquid fertilizer support will be provided to 25 thousand 4 farmers planting barley and wheat in the 25 neighborhoods.
GOAL: ACHIEVE HIGH PRODUCTION FROM THE GROUND
1 million 200 thousand liters of organomineral and microbial liquid fertilizers with NPK (with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium elements) produced by BelPLAS AŞ this year, 387 thousand 480 liters will be distributed to farmers in the capital.
The BelPLAS teams, who intervened due to the damage caused by chemical fertilizers to the soil, produced a nature-friendly liquid fertilizer in order to eliminate the harmful effects of chemical fertilizers and to contribute financially to farmers who face difficulties in the face of increasing costs. Thanks to liquid fertilizers of high nutritional value, produced in BelPLAS laboratories and containing organic substances, domestic producers will provide both more harvest and will be economically comfortable.
BelPLAS AŞ Deputy General Manager Mustafa Hazman said that they have started distributing liquid fertilizers to farmers who first plant barley and wheat seasonally and then they will provide this support to growers who grow vegetables.
“Last year there was the distribution of organic fertilizers, but this year, as a metropolitan, we have gone further. We produce and distribute fertilizers that we call organomineral fertilizers, that we call microbial fertilizers, which regulate the soil, increase the harvest, are good for the soil, and will allow the villagers to turn to ecological and organic agriculture. We wish you a good harvest.”
GREAT ATTENTION OF DOMESTIC PRODUCERS TO LIQUID FERTILIZERS MANUFACTURED BY ABB
Farmers, who receive wheat and barley seed support from the Metropolitan Municipality, show great interest in the liquid fertilizer, which is distributed by teams from the Rural Development Service, in order to use the grains planted during tillering and rooting.
Polatlı farmers, who are supported with quality and affordable fertilizers according to market prices, expressed their satisfaction with the following words:
Bekir Ozcan: “I didn’t expect to plant at all this year. Because I couldn’t buy fertilizer or seeds. I got my seed and I got my fertilizer, so I’m planting it, it’s a wonderful thing.
İdris Öztürk: “These aids are really nice, they are made to help farmers and we are really happy about them. The situation of the farmer is very difficult, there is no purchasing power, you cannot add fertilizer. I have been a farmer for 30 years and there was no such support before.
Serafettin Ozdemir: “I am very satisfied with the projects of Mansur Yavaş who support us. I bought wheat seeds, got chickpea support and diesel support. We are going to buy grass, now we are buying liquid fertilizer. We would have difficulties without these contributions, we obtain more effective results with these services.
Guest Halit: “These supports are very good for the farmer for the farmer. This is an unprecedented situation. We use grass, diesel, fertilizers, seeds. May God bless those who work for the country. I am 70 years old, we are my father’s farmers. In the absence of these supports, we replanted, but it was very difficult. These apps put our hands at ease.
Levent Veteran: “I would like to warmly thank our metropolitan mayor. We have benefited from wheat, diesel and medicine. Its contribution to our budget is great. We really couldn’t take it, thank you.”
Ahmet Koc: “In any case, our president is with us. He fed our animals. We buy grass, we buy fertilizer. Thank you very much for the wheat. These practices have great support for the villagers.
İsmail Ersoy (Mayor of Karaahmet Village): “I am also a farmer. I want to thank our metropolitan mayor very much, he held the hand of the farmer. We bought wheat seeds, we got yields in our perfect land. The work of the farmer will not be in vain. Thanks very much.”
Emin Ertugrul: “I have been a farmer since the age of 17. The liquid fertilizers that are distributed to us have many advantages, moreover, we learned that they are produced by the Metropolitan Municipality. Liquid fertilizers have great benefits for plants, they increase the productivity taken from the soil.
