Against order of 107 Turkmen entrepreneurs, 785 units of agricultural machinery from the American Company John Deer, purchased on credit, will be delivered to the country. The Rysgal Newspaper of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan writes about this.
The purchase became possible thanks to the agreement between the Government of the country and John Deer for financing 85% of the cost of agricultural equipment purchased by the Turkmen business.
The initiative was developed with a view to provide state support for development of private farming in Turkmenistan, and was enshrined in a Decree by President Berdimuhamedov in January this year.
The entrepreneurs bought on credit a total of 287 tractors, 48 harvesters and 450 units of various technical devices. Some of tractors they purchased have already been delivered to the country.
The purchased equipment corresponds to the soil and climatic conditions of Turkmenistan and will be used in the crop and livestock sectors.
The increase in the share of entrepreneurs in the agriculture of Turkmenistan is caused by a growth in the number of processing enterprises in the country, which buy various agricultural products in bulk.
This, in turn, contributes to the expansion in a variety of high-quality vitamin products with a long shelf life such as fruit and vegetable purees, canned food, ketchup, etc.
