Farmer Registration System (ÇKS) applications will end on 30 June 2022.
ANKARA (IGFA) – There is only one week left until the end of the registration deadline for the ÇKS.
Şemsi Bayraktar, General Leader of the Union of Chambers of Agriculture of Turkey (TZOB), warned that our producers, who do not register with the ÇKS, cannot benefit from the basis, cannot obtain agricultural insurance and use low-interest loans.
Stating that the farmers should not leave their ÇKS applications to the last day in order not to experience victimization, Bayraktar stated that the area and number of farmers registered to the ÇKS changed from year to year.
Stating that while 2 million 765 thousand farmers registered for ÇKS in 2003, 2 million 127 thousand farmers registered for ÇKS in 2020, “There was a 23 percent decrease in the number of farmers registered with ÇKS in the middle of 2003-2020. Similarly, while it was 16.73 million hectares in 2003, , 15.18 million hectares of land were registered in the CKS in 2020. There was a 9.3 percent decrease in the number of farmers registered with the CKS in the middle of 2003-2020. “It reached 2 million 173 thousand with an increase of 1 percent. However, the area registered to the EQS decreased by 0.1 percent to 15.16 million hectares. Although our farmers continue their agricultural production activities, they cannot register for the CKS for various reasons,” he said.
