With the effect of climate change, the cultivation area and production pattern will change in Turkiye. Taking this into account, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry accelerated the product pattern change work. As a result of the study, the water status of the crop pattern planning will be rearranged for drought. Support will be given to alternative crops that are drought-resistant, with less water demand and support given to plants with more water demand will be reviewed. As a result of the study, it is aimed to make plant patterns durable and production systems compatible with climate risks and natural disasters. Thus, production will be increased by implementing an ecosystem-oriented sustainable food production model. The basin-based production model will be extended to expand the cultivation of plants with low water needs. Drought-tolerant seed varieties will be developed and the use of disease-resistant varieties will be expanded.

Region-specific determinations were made…

According to the climate change and agriculture evaluation report of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, coffee tree cultivation comes to the fore as an alternative plant for climate change in the Mediterranean region.
