Tigran Sargsyan: fund is formed in Armenia to develop seed growing

PanARMENIAN.Net - During the November 4 sitting, the Armenian government approved the procedure for servicing the special account for implementation of the Program on Development of Wheat Seed Growing and Seed Production for 2010-2014.

Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan noted that a fund is formed for the first time in the country to develop seed growing.

During the first stage, seed growing enterprises will be formed to provide reproduced wheat seeds to farmers in future, he said.

Armenia has already received 1,000t of high-quality Russian wheat as part of the program.

“We aim to have enterprises producing high-quality seeds in a couple of years,” Sargsyan said, adding that the program will allow Armenia to reach the level of self-sufficiency in 4-5 years.
