Once the garlic produced in the region was sold for 29 kurus per kilo. The same year that I opened the facility farmers was able to sell their produce 3 TL per kilogram. When processed, the price stability was emerged. Farmers have become more profitable. We have been developing a new project to carry out the garlic farming heritage and quality of produce by cooperating Tubitak and the universities in the region. We are developing original garlic seeds in our research fields of about 50 acres. Our target is to supply 50 percent of garlic demanded in Turkey.”
