As one of the institutions involved in the ‘Mediterranean Fruit Fly Fight (AMS) National Action Plan’ process, the Aegean Exporters’ Associations (EİB), which accelerated their work, called for a regional struggle.

Aegean Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Exporters’ Association Chairman Hayrettin Uçak announced the activities of EİB by saying that Aegean Exporters’ Associations participated in the meetings held within the scope of the Mediterranean Fruit Fly Control (AMS) National Action Plan and that they were informed about the AMS struggle in the meetings with the producers.

Uçak explained, “The importance of AMS damage was mentioned to the technical personnel of the member companies.

During the ‘Free Area Project’ carried out by İzmir Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry, Manisa Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry, Bornova Plant Protection Research Institute, AMS traps and support were provided.”
