Balkan Seed Workshop was organised in Edirne by the Balkan Seed Growers Association hosted by Trakya University with the support of Turkish Sub-Union of Seed Industrialists and Producers (TSÜAB).

Stating that Türkiye has always been in close relations with the Balkan geography, TSÜAB President Yıldıray Gençer emphasised that the Turkish seed sector has made a great breakthrough in recent years. “There are 1,100 seed companies in our country, and we produce approximately 1.5 million tonnes of certified seeds annually.

In this process, we will carry out good works through the Balkan Seed Growers Association.”
