Sultan Aydin, a female grower from Erzurum, a city located in eastern Turkey has been representing woman growers from her country in international exhibitions. The grower has had her greenhouse for 3 years and she grows her products with music and without any fertilizers. Therefore she was selected to participate as a representative of Turkey to meetings about women’s role in battling climate change. The first of these meetings took place in Kirgizstan and her presentation about growing products with music garnered a lot of attention from the crowd. Ms. Aydin became a grower 3 years ago, setting up her own greenhouse with her investment and with the state support funds amounting to 6.000 USD.
Sultan Aydin: “The people in the crowd were very surprised when I started talking about agriculture with music. Then I realized I am the first one who attempted this. I am very confident about the quality and health of my products. I do not use any fertilizers and my production process is completely organic. I do not use any chemicals at all. My own kids eat the products so I place a lot of importance on the health of my products.
"I believe the efficiency of my production increased significantly after I started playing music in my greenhouse. I have received 10 tons of products from my greenhouse before starting playing music and 20 tons afterward. That’s why I was selected to represent my country in these meetings.”
