Aleppo - SMART

On Sunday, the Humanitarian Relief Group launched a project to support 200 farmers, including forcibly displaced farmers, in a city and two villages in Western Aleppo, Northern Syria.

Anas Deeb, an engineer in the project, reported that the project is dedicated to farmers who do not have enough farming experience in agriculture in the city of Atarib and villages of Kafr Nouran and al-Jina.

Deeb added that the project will provide different agricultural means to invest in an acre of a resident farmeris agricultural lands in favor of forcibly displaced farmers. The project will also provide support to invest an acre of the resident farmer's agricultural land as a part of benefit contract between the two sides.

Deeb noted that the support includes cultivating, providing 350 kilograms of seeds, 80 kilograms of fertilizers, 30 litres of pesticides and fungicides, 150 litres of fuel, and a drip irrigation network.

Deeb added that the Humanitarian Relief Group will follow up on the agricultural lands until the harvest season ends, and the group will intervene in case of emergency, such as crops affected with diseases. The group will hold sessions and training courses for the farmers.

A forcibly displaced farmer from the Eastern Hama countryside, who introduced himself as Abu Muhammad, said that he submitted his identity card and other required documents to the group when he heard about the project. Abu Muhammad noted that he received all the promised means of farming without difficulties.

In June 2018, the potato crop production was reduced to half in Western Aleppo due to the spread of a potato disease after unusually high temperatures in the area.
