Our government is trying to take precautions, but it takes time. I hope this year is better. Last year we had a little affected by the drought. Some regions were more affected. This year, the dams are full, cleaner. There will be more beautiful products. We have to move the paddy field up in terms of yield. It increases. Our yield per decare is up to 1 ton per decare, “he said.

There is currently no rice paddy cultivation. Some of our producers have their wheat. I think they will be damaged. We estimate about 12 thousand acres of land for cultivate. It will start in the first week of May. This has been a great blessing for our friends who will also use the groundwater. We have been waiting for this for the last 2-3 years. We believe it will be compensated in this way especially in groundwater, said.
