Erzincan governor Ali Arslantas informed the press that 100 greenhouses will be built in the Ulukoy district, which is the center of vegetable production in Erzincani, a city located in northeastern Turkey.
Meeting with growers in the area, the governor added that each greenhouse will be 0.2 hectares, and 50% of each greenhouse’s costs will be covered by the state, while the rest will be financed by the growers themselves.
Governor Ali Arslantas: “We have been planning this for a while. Our goal is to build 100 greenhouses. We, as the state, will cover 50% of the expenses whilst growers will pay the rest themselves. We have also reached a deal with the state bank Ziraat Bank, so growers can also receive low-credit loans from the bank to finance their greenhouses. The repayments of the loan will start 2 years later and will be repaid in 7 years at an interest of 8%.”
