February 18, 2021

The Turkish Minister of Agriculture and Forest Bekir Pakdemirli approved the establishment of an organised geothermal greenhouse zone in the Efeler district, in the second half of 2020. The zone will affect an area of ​​630 decares.

Aydın Deputy Bekir Kuvvet Erim said “By minimizing the energy cost with geothermal heating, our farmers will be able to produce under more comfortable conditions. Most importantly, employment will increase with this big project. We want our farmers to produce more, more sustainably, and earn more as they produce. Not a single citizen in Aydın should be unemployed. The fertile lands of our Efeler Land, Aydın, will be the centre of agricultural investment.”
