The "Renewal of Plastic Greenhouse Covers" project cooperation protocol was signed between the Sakarya Governorship Investment Monitoring Coordination Presidency, Metropolitan Municipality, and Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry.
Speaking at the signing ceremony held at the Disaster Coordination Center, Deputy Governor Ersin Emiroglu said that they will contribute to the production of value-added greenhouses with the protocol. Metropolitan Mayor Ekrem Yuce stated that they would ensure that the idle greenhouses are brought into the economy and said, "As the Metropolitan Municipality, we will contribute to the distribution and renewal of greenhouse covers with 20% support from our budget. We hope it will be beneficial to our farmers and producers."
Emphasizing that the state will always support farmers and growers with the idea that "there is no development without production," Yuce said, "Greenhouses continue to produce products throughout the year as they do not depend on the environmental conditions and climate. In addition to this feature, it increases product variety and yield and has many benefits such as employment." Yuce also pointed out that agriculture has an important share in the city's economy.
