Konya Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Uğur İbrahim Altay reminded that they sent the product obtained by planting barley on 700 thousand square meters of land in Meram Çomaklı Neighborhood, which is owned by Konya Metropolitan Municipality, to the animal producers affected by the flood disaster in Kastamonu last year.
Stating that they introduced a new plant to the region by growing safflower plant in the same land this year and aimed to contribute to the oil deficit and economy in our country, President Altay said, "Under the control of our agricultural engineers who are experts in this field, planting, fertilization and weed control were carried out. In our work here, we use agricultural drone technology, which has the advantage of directly affecting the yields of plants during critical periods. According to the development periods of the plant, we eliminate the damage caused when entering the land with the tractor and introduce agricultural drone technology to the region for the first time. After the harvest of the planted crops, I hope we will use the income we will obtain for social supports."
