In order to prevent the increase in bread prices, the government sold the wheat purchased from abroad to the flour industrialist at half the price, and offered the domestic producer a base price for its cost. Moreover, this price is even below the market price. In addition, it turned out that last year’s support premiums have not yet been paid.
Baki Remzi Suiçmez, President of the Chamber of Agricultural Engineers, reminded that the price of wheat in the world is over 400 dollars and it is expected to increase, and drew attention to the following: “The price of 6 thousand 50 TL given in Turkey is insufficient. Because the costs are 6.5 TL per kilo today. In the free market, the price is 7 thousand liras. In this case, the farmer does not give his wheat to TMO. Therefora, TMO will try to fill its stocks by buying wheat at a high price from abroad. Barley means fodder. It means livestock. This price does not solve the problems of animal husbandry.” This price does not solve the problems of animal husbandry. Barley will also continue to be purchased from abroad. Barley means fodder. It means livestock. Suiçmez also reminded the farmer that last year’s premium support had not been paid and said, “If the farmer takes his wheat to TMO, he will receive the premium support maybe 1-1.5 years later.”
IMPORT WILL CONTINUE
Reminding the cost increase, the President of the Turkish Agriculturalists Association Hüseyin Demirtaş said: “For example, the increase in fertilizers has reached 400-500 percent. Therefore, the new floor price does not save the farmer. The farmer will not give the wheat to TMO. Stockists will enter the market and drive the price down. While the wheat-flour crisis is at the door, the price is announced a few cents above the cost, below the world stock market. Will the stock markets be followed every month from now on and the difference will be paid? No. At these prices, we will not be able to plant the farmer next year. Again, we will give foreign currency abroad.”
Confused in the MINISTRY
Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, Vahit Kirişçi, who said that they expect a harvest of 19.5 million tons of wheat this year at the weekend, increased the figure to 20 million tons yesterday. Nihat Pakdil, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, expressed the expectation as 19.5 million tons at another event.
