About Agriculture

Within the framework of our project of breeding milk cattle and producing hygienic, refrigerated cow milk of good quality, in order to meet the needs of the project, we produce plants for raising livestock in both arid and wetlands of 5.000 decare (A metric unit of area equal to 10 ares) in total. 500 decare of this land is reserved for dry farming and the other 4500 decare for irrigated farming. In animal production as well as herbal production we cooperate with universities and carry out scientific studies on trial parcels.

Since the annual rainfall in Niğde is very low and there exist some seasonal imbalances, irrigated farming is engaged by making use of ground water in the region. In provincial-wide herbal production, grain farming distinguishes. In growing grains, the system of one-year plantation and one-year fallowing is applied. On the lands whose soil is of better quality, fruits, mainly apples, cherries and walnuts and also potatoes are grown.

Depending on animal breeding in the region, it is remarkable that forage planting is getting wider and among forage plants, trefoil and corn to be ensilaged productions are high. Our establishment supports agricultural development by using technology, a necessity for the century.
