Turkey’s agricultural problems stem from wrong government policies and can be solved by incentivising small farms, alternative and more environmentally friendly production technologies, said sociologist Dr Sezai Ozan Zeybek, a research fellow at the Forum Transregionale Studien in Germany

Agriculture in Turkey has been hit by a fall in the lira by about a third this year, raising the price of fuel and imports and in turn leading to higher prices for consumers. Food items make up about a quarter of the basket used to calculate inflation, currently at an annual rate of 25 percent.

As domestic crop supply fails to meet market needs, Business Today Egypt looks at agriculture sector and the challenges of ensuring food security.
Agriculture, forestry and fishing constituted 11.5% of Egypt’ GDP (gross domestic product) last year, according to the World Bank, which may seem a significantly high number compared to developed countries like France (1.5%) and the UK (0.5). However, farmers in Egypt are suffering on various fronts.
Citizens’ complaints about the prices of food have been on the rise, and a campaign was launched to boycott fruits. President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi criticized homeowners building on agricultural land. With rising costs and various violations to deal with, the agricultural sector has had alot to contend with recently.
