(Iraq Now News)- ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan 24) – Farmers in Koya completed brand development training this past week as part of a project by Czech NGO Caritas to support environmentally friendly agricultural development. 

Agri-business students were selected from universities in project areas, which also include Rawanduz and Qushtapa, to receive additional training before working alongside local and Czech experts with forty eco-conscious farmers who submitted unique and feasible business proposals.

Supplementary workshops and individual consultations are ongoing.

“Kurdistan has good soil and good water sources but almost everything gets imported, and farmers here lack technology,” said Project Manager Abdulsalam Amoush. 

“Kurdistan produces only 8% of the fruit and only 60% of the vegetables it consumes, and in some recent years just a single ton of lemons.

We want to support Kurdistan to become more independent in this regard.”
