The Antalya Metropolitan Municipality provided 6,000 square meters of greenhouse nylon worth 15,000 USD to the farmers whose greenhouses were damaged in the storm that took place last week. Support was provided to 1658 farmers who suffered from various disasters in two years.
Antalya Metropolitan Municipality continues to be with the farmer in difficult times. The Metropolitan Municipality, which supports the farmers of Antalya in every field with its local development move, did not leave the farmers alone, whose greenhouses were damaged in the storm last week. The Metropolitan Municipality Agricultural Services Department determined that the greenhouse nylons were damaged the most. Thereupon, in the first place, greenhouse nylon donations worth approximately 15,000 USD were given to small enterprises engaged in greenhouse agriculture in Serik, Korkuteli, and Elmali. The producers received the greenhouse nylons from the Agricultural Services Department.
Seda Ozel, Head of Agricultural Services Department, stated that the Metropolitan Municipality stands by the growers in disasters that occur due to climate change, and said, "In order for our farmers to continue their production and not to be cut off from production, our Disaster Commission, which was formed 2 years ago, evaluates the notifications and determines the damage as soon as possible. We support the growers in the name of continuity. We support the producers, especially in the case of losses in small businesses. We also received many notifications about the storm that took place last week. We started the aid program after the damage was determined. Greenhouse nylon is distributed to 1658 farmers who sustained damages due to various disasters in the last 2 years, We provided greenhouse iron, cement, livestock and feed support as a part of the program."
