Bayraktar said, “I’d like to remind that in the framework of regulations, farmers should apply as soon as possible not to wait for the last day in order not to be victimized.”

Şemsi Bayraktar stated that despite the fact that there are 23 million 200 thousand hectares of agricultural land that can be registered with FRS across the country, the area where FRS registration was registered in 2018 was limited to only 15 million 162 thousand hectares.

Registration of FRS of agricultural areas is essential for our farmers to benefit from the supports that contribute to the continuation of their agricultural activities.

Bayraktar emphasized that the producers who did not apply for FRS, could not benefit from the supports given especially during the year such as diesel oil, chemical fertilizer, certified seed, forage crops and premium applications. “Besides they cannot use low interest loans, cannot give products to institutions such as TMO (Soil Crops Office) and also cannot apply for agricultural insurance. In order to benefit from the support they need to register the FRS” he concluded…
