The whole world understood the importance of agriculture.”

It will proceed in the form of contract farming. With digitalization, we will have come a long way in agriculture. Good agriculture will have been produced. Producers will not worry about how to sell their products. In digital agriculture, hall traders, producers, exporters and institutions of the state will be together.”

Pointing out that switching to digital will encourage everyone to production, Uçak noted, “In this way, with the young population, everyone will focus on agriculture and return to rural life. With this project, everyone will work in their region, hometown and trade. It will create new projects for our youth. It will turn into a serious opportunity for Turkey. There is a feverish work in agriculture. Everybody is embraced and put their hands under the stone. There will be a serious increase in agriculture.”

Big investors tend to agriculture…

Big investors started to take place in this sector. The continuation of situation like this will have a positive impact on our exports. Nothing will be the same in the coming period. Stones will inevitably move out. Innovation will come. It will be much better than before.”
