          The Mayor of Melikgazi, who said that they would contribute much more to farmers in rural areas, Dr. Mustafa Palancioglu,"We are working to support our farmers in our project, which we are carrying out jointly with the Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry. Our government is working hard and striving especially to pave the way for the farmer, to increase the support given to our farmers and to make the lands left to fallow productive and to be planted. Agriculture and animal husbandry should not end. Our farmers need to consciously switch to industrial agriculture now. Agriculture has now changed format. It is an issue that countries should pay attention to, such as the defense industry. It is necessary to turn our agricultural lands and pastures into a protected area and protect them. We will support agriculture as much as we can as a municipality. May our local and national varieties of azkan chickpeas be beneficial to both our farmers and Melikgazi seed plants. I wish all our farmers to be auspicious, auspicious and fertile. I hope that your product will be abundant and your earnings will be fertile.," said.

Dr. Mustafa Palancioglu very much for being with our farmer. May our seeds be fruitful for the best. ” he said.
