Turkey: Turkey Planting Seeds Sector Overview

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The seed sector in Turkey has grown rapidly since the new seed law entered into force in 2006. Certified seed production has increased about threefold in the last ten years due to Ministry of Food, Agriculture, and Livestock’s (MinFAL) encouragement of certified seed usage. Turkey will start to implement a new subsidy program for agricultural products in 2017 in which they will encourage the use of domestically produced certified seed. To meet this demand, the seed sector in Turkey will likely need to nearly double certified wheat and barley seed production in the coming year. The top imported seeds to Turkey are vegetables, and the top seed exports from Turkey are hybrid corn and sunflower seed. Wheat and barley are the prominent crops in Turkey, and seeds for these crops are produced domestically.
