very good idea, kurdish people should not give their money to Iran and Turkey , we better give it to Kurdish people themsleves.

I heared one of the big problems of agriculture in Kurdistan is lack of Water Pumps, to pump water for agriculture , KRG should just buy many of them and give it to farmer with Long-paying loans so they pay for it in long term .

The problem is Kurdish farmers lack sufficient training in using those pieces of equipment. So mechanized farming can only come into operation if we have skilled farmers. What we need to boost agricultural productivity is expertise to train our farmers, I would hope that would be British or other western farmers to bring in the skills. As Britain as always had an over-supply in food which has been produced in farming.

I actually disagree heval. I think what would be more finacially suitable is instead just imposing tariffs on these products. In that way it would not only push up imports, but also generate revenue for the government.

Watermelon import ban pleases farmers

PostAuthor: alan131210 » Fri Jun 22, 2012 7:41 am

An import ban on watermelon from the neighbouring countries by the Kurdistan Regional Government pleases Kirkuk farmers.

The Agriculture and Water Resources Ministry of the KRG has decided to ban watermelon import from the neighbouring countries. Ramazan Majid, who is a farmer said, “This decision has pleased us, if they don’t regret making it.”

According to Kirkuk Agriculture Department statistics, more than 140 thousand acres of land is allocated to watermelon production. Majid has allocated 100 acres to watermelons, stating that “The import of watermelon in past years has reduced the local market demand, and we were losing.”

Mehdi Mubarak, Director of the Kirkuk Agriculture Department considered the decision as ‘important’ saying, “Kirkuk has no shared border with the neighbouring countries, but the imports were coming via Sulaimani and Erbil.”

He added, “If they implement this decision, we will benefit, since the decision is influential for the farmers, as we’ll depend on local production.”

After the Uzem lands in the south of Diyalah, Kirkuk is the second most productive land in watermelon production. The areas of Hawija and Abbasiya are within the reach of Kirkuk, as Shwan and Prde are coming in second on the provincial level.

Mehdi considers the quality of watermelon produced in Kirkuk as ‘good’ as one farmer can produce five to seven tons. According to Mubarak, watermelon from Kirkuk is sent to the Kurdistan provinces more than the others.

The decision follows concerns from some local authorities, farmers and MPs over importing goods while they are produced locally, as it hurts the local production.

Kurdistan Agriculture Ministry issues regulations for tackling smuggling of fruit and veg

Image

24/06/2012 19:04

ERBIL, June 24 (AKnews) - The Kurdistan Region's Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources has issued a number of regulations for tackling smuggling and illegal fruit and vegetable produce imports.

General director of planning and follow-up Anwar Omer said the ministry halted the import of a number of fruits and vegetables to the Kurdistan Region like onion, tomato, beans, peach and watermelon but these produce items are still imported to the region illegally.

The region has therefore issued orders and regulations.

These items of produce cannot come from crossing points like Ibrahim Khalil, Bashmakh and Parwezkhan. Also the quarantines in the region are very tough with smuggling but Iraq's border crossing points are very weak, said Omer. Fruits and vegetables therefore cannot enter Kurdistan from Mosul, Diyala and Kirkuk.

Omer added: "Iraqi farmers use their cars to export prohibited foreign fruits and vegetables to the Kurdistan Region instead of exporting their fruits and vegetables [abroad].

The ministry has now decided to check farmers’ cars and tighten the checkpoints and border crossings between Iraq and Kurdistan.

If the produce found is not from Iraq, the farmer will be investigated and punished and the loads will be seized, said Omer.
