Cropland sickness alert in 2 provinces due to rains

SHAFAQNA Türkiye – Precipitation in Sivas, which fell in large quantities compared to previous years, as expected, caused rust on cereal crops. The incidence of rust was reported to have increased significantly throughout the city.

Volkan Yörük, Lecturer at Sivas Cumhuriyet University (SCU) Vocational School of Engineering Sciences, Crop and Livestock Production, Organic Agriculture Program, who had previously warned about this problem, stated that chemical control should be started in a short time and said: “For the last time , we gave some information and warnings about wheat and rust diseases. We were found, and now, according to the information we received, there is a wheat and grain plantation in Sivas with an area of ​​more than 3.5 million hectares. Unfortunately, as the rains continued, sad news began to arrive. Here is the news that sometimes the fields completely disappear with images of the flood, and more often than not, the rust disease has completely spread to our entire city. On this area of ​​3.5 million hectares, we expect a harvest of about 1 million tons under normal conditions. Of course, the biggest impact of this disease on us will be crop losses of up to 40 percent. This loss of efficiency is a situation that will affect the economy of our country and the economy of our province. At this stage, when the rains begin to decrease and gradually stop if the field is suitable, farmers should urgently begin chemical control of the rust disease,” he said.
