CAPRIFICATION PERIOD STARTS IN BEYDAĞ…

Press release…

Farmers of Beydağ (a district of İzmir province) have kicked off to caprify for figs, one of the important livelihoods of the district, in order to get the product to be more qualified and productive.

Nowadays, it is time of caprification, our farmers are also hanging trees to grow quality figs.”
