Producers started harvesting with the blooming of rose flowers in the city, where 65 percent of the world’s rose oil production is made. The farmers, who went to their gardens in the early hours of the morning because the sun reduced the oil rate, sent the first roses they collected to the factories.
Hasan Çelik, General Manager of the Rose, Rose Oil and Oil Seeds Agricultural Sales Cooperatives Union (GÜLBİRLİK), told reporters that rose production is carried out on an area of approximately 38 thousand decares in Isparta.

Çelik noted that they expect a yield of approximately 15 thousand tons this year.
