Noting that the project titled “We Know the Pesticides We Use”, implemented by the Aegean Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Exporters’ Association (EYMSİB) in 2021, started by taking samples from 1,500 decares of strawberry orchards, Hayrettin Uçak, Chair of EYMSİB, stated that the producer’s residue-free crop cultivation lies at the heart of the success in strawberry exports.
