Syria increases corn production to reduce imports

Syria increases corn production to reduce imports

Damascus, Oct 4 (Prensa Latina) The production of corn this year in Syria is much higher thanks to the incentives offered by the government to producers, said today the manager of the State Fodder Company, Abdul Karim Shabat.

Approximately 700,000 tons are expected to be produced, 400,000 tons of wet corn and 300,000 tons of dry corn, which would help to considerably reduce imports of the cereal used mainly as fodder for livestock, the manager told al-Watan newspaper.

He revealed that decisions were taken at the government level to support this crop and facilitate its purchase and processing, and purchase centers were even established near the planted areas.

We have set a very encouraging price and our aim is to secure the needs of the winners, who in previous years faced difficulties in importing corn due to its high prices, he said.

He hoped that farmers will double the planted areas for the next season because this crop will bring a good income for the farmer and will achieve remarkable savings for the livestock farmers.
