Seferihisar Municipality started a new project in Ulamis village and distributed free Topan Karakilcik wheat to the farmers. Seferihisar Mayor Tunc Soyer stated that the municipality will purchase the 2018 wheat harvest for twice the price of the state’s minimum price.

Topan Karakilcik wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) is rarely found in the last decades. Seferihisar Municipality found the seeds of this wheat variety and produced at Can Yucel Seed Center to make flavor and bread with the traditional cooking methods. The municipality was looking for solutions to raise the income of the villagers and farmers, so after the success of the traditional bread, this new project has been developed.

The villagers have been distributed 17-20 kg wheat seeds to plant per acre. The municipality signed an agreement with the farmers to guarantee the purchase of their harvest for twice the price of the announced state base price.

Seferihisar Municipality distributed 5.4 tons of wheat seeds that day to 24 farmers for a total of 280 acres field area.
