The Dar’a Governorate of Agriculture has initiated a project to establish family plantations.
The project is being implemented by providing seeds, fertilizers and drip irrigation equipment.
Engineer Abd al-Fattah al-Rahal, director of the Dar’a Provincial Department of Agriculture, said 13 villages and about 1,500 citizens of the province were supported in 2019.
He explained that family farms provide consumers with organic products without pesticides to meet the market demand for fruit and vegetables.
Al-Rahal said the Directorate also provided a trading platform for agricultural products in Dara’a with a total area of 63 dunams.
The family farming project aims to support rural families in different provinces and increase their income. Such measures contribute to the growth of the provincial economy and the welfare of citizens.
