Two important decisions about food stock

The government has made two more important decisions regarding grain. We have stopped shipping overseas from the warehouses of wheat flour, bread, pasta, cereals, legumes, and oil seeds, which are the main components of animal feed.

By the president’s decision, farmers planting wheat, barley, oats, triticale and triticale products were provided with 50 lira additional fertilizer support per decare for this year alone.

Transit ban started

As of yesterday, the Directorate General of Customs does not permit the transportation of grains, legumes, oil seeds and feed products from warehouses abroad under the transportation system at the request of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. Wheat, barley, triticale, oats and rye on the transit ban list. Lens beans, chick beans, beans; sunflower seed oil, benibana seed oil, rapeseed oil, palm oil seeds, soybean seed oil, and all kinds of wheat, barley, alfalfa, stems, straw, flesh used in feed production. Experts said, “Because it’s Turkey, I don’t want these products on the list to be sent to importers in other countries. They said,” If you could supply them, I reduced tariffs, send them to Turkey. I will import it. ”

Another government support was for fertilizer, which farmers avoided as prices rose by about 400% last year. An additional 50 lira per decare for farmers planting wheat, barley, oats, rye and triticale, with a presidential decision amending the decision on fertilizer and certified seed support applicable in 2022, published yesterday in the official bulletin. Fertilizer support was brought in. .. In addition to these products, this year we will offer certified seed support for oat, paddy, benibana, chickpeas, canola, sesame, dried beans, lentils, clover, potatoes, broad beans, onobrychis, onobrychis, soybeans and peanuts. It was decided. The amount of support for agricultural consultants has also increased to 52,000 lira. Another article in yesterday’s presidential decision included sunflower cultivation in the Aydın Efferer, Keshuk, Sultan Hisar, Yenipazaar, Karabük Eskipazar, Kutahya Domanic, and Sivas Hafik Basin.


Hüsey in Demirtaş, President of the Turkish Agricultural Workers Association, told Hürriyet about this decision: This is a positive development. Turkey is located in seven climatic zones and is a country capable of producing all kinds of agriculture. Therefore, to date, it was not necessary to import many products. In fact, you can feed Turkey as well as other countries like Turkey. That’s why I think it’s a late decision. For example, meat and dairy products will soon be on the agenda. Currently, this support can be provided to farmers who are enrolled in the Farmers Registration System (ÇKS). Production planning needs to be done in the medium to long term. These plans require increased agricultural support and payment of support on time.

“I need more support”

Baki Remzi Suiçmez, chairman of the TMMOB Agricultural Engineers Council, told Hürriyet about this decision: This support is also positive, but not enough. The final subsidy made a positive discrimination against grains such as wheat, barley, rye and oats. In the sunflower dimension, our self-sufficiency rate has dropped from 66 percent to 60 percent. Since I bought it in Russia and Ukraine, the price increase was noticeable. Sunflower oil also increased from $ 1,400 per ton to $ 2,400. With this latest aid, it is important to include sunflower oil in the scope of aid in four states and seven basins, but fertilizer diesel aid remained at 37 lira. Therefore, by producing grain for everyone, the reduction of other products is on the agenda. This decision is positive but inadequate. TMO must provide a purchase guarantee in advance. “
