The first harvest was made in the greenhouse where geothermal water was used for heating in the Haymana district of Ankara.
In Haymana, the first harvest excitement was experienced in the hydroponic greenhouse established by entrepreneur Selim Erdogan a month ago. In the automation system of the greenhouse, which uses geothermal wastewater for heating and rainwater for 40 % of its irrigation, domestic software was used. During the 35-day harvest period, a total of 108 thousand root crops were grown, including 30,000 red lettuce roots, 70,000 green lettuce roots, dill, and lamb's ear. The first harvest was made with the attendance of Haymana Mayor Ozdemir Turgut, AK Party Ankara 1st Region Deputy candidate Murat Alpaslan, academics, and citizens who came to visit Haymana.
Speaking at the harvest ceremony, Haymana Mayor Turgut said, "After the entrepreneur Selim Erdogan told us about his project, we first tried to help by allocating him a 10-decare area within the municipality. The most important aspect of this project is that it was completed successfully and sets an example for other people. We will continue to support such projects and increase employment."
