Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Bekir Pakdemirli said, “The e-Agriculture Portal is an on-line system that brings together all the operations of our Ministry for farmers, citizens and companies under one roof.”
Stating that the e-Agriculture Portal is an on-line system that combines all transactions for farmers, citizens and companies under one roof, Pakdemirli noted, “Without going to the provincial / district directorate for each issue, you will be able to access hundreds of services on one roof over the e-Agriculture Portal.”
Pakdemirli participated in the promotion programme of the e-Agriculture Portal, organized by the video conference method, from the meeting hall of the Ministry, where all agricultural and animal husbandry records and transactions are gathered on a single platform.
Pointing out that digital technology is everywhere in life, Pakdemirli added that the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has taken its place in this digital move with a strong infrastructure.
Indicating that they use satellite technologies widely while sharing the digital works of his Ministry, Pakdemirli explained, “Water resources, uncultivated agricultural areas and forests are monitored thanks to satellite images. Satellite and aerial images are translated into digital data also thanks to geographical information systems.”
“The number of members in DİTAP exceeded 28 thousand in 3 months”
Reminding that this year was declared as “The Year of Digitalization in Agriculture”, Pakdemirli emphasized, “One of the important steps taken in this direction is ‘Digital Agriculture Market (DİTAP)’. DİTAP is not just a digital platform that brings together producers and consumers. Behind this, there are many factors that will add value to agriculture such as contract production, decreasing production costs, ensuring price stability, removing intermediary elements, increasing the market power of the producer and increasing financial opportunities.”
“The number of members in DİTAP exceeded 28 thousand in 3 months and the total turnover surpassed 100 million liras too,” Pakdemirli concluded.
