“We have 1.3 million tonnes of production, we export seeds to 117 countries”

Minister of Agriculture and Forestry İbrahim Yumaklı stated that 97 out of every 100 units of seeds used are produced in Türkiye.

“We have 1.3 million tonnes of production. Türkiye has now entered the literature as a seed producing country in the world. We export seeds to 117 countries,” Yumaklı said.

“We export seeds to 117 countries”

Yumaklı, who put the last point on the seed discussions brought to the agenda again after all foreign trade with Israel was cut, explained, “We are not affected in any way in terms of agricultural products.

Or we can adjust it a little more favourably inside. There are topics that we update every month, especially regarding the known falsehoods. Seed is one of them. No country in the world is 100 percent self-sufficient. However, 97 out of every 100 units of seeds we use are produced in our country. We have 1.3 million tonnes of production.”

“Türkiye has now entered the literature as a seed producing country in the world. We export seeds to 117 countries. Those who are still in that mindset keep talking. Just like with hay. People’s fears are tried to be triggered through the issues of hay and seeds. Weren’t there seeds coming from Israel? There were. But there were also seeds from all over the world. By the way, there is a huge difference between what we buy from Israel and what we sell to them,” Yumaklı added…
