January 26, Fineko/ The geopolitical situation, prevailing in the world today, as well as global climate changes, affect the growth of food prices. The Ministry of Agriculture of Azerbaijan is working in this direction.

He added that a decree on stimulating food wheat was signed.

Farmers using the Pivot irrigation system will receive a subsidy of 100 manats for each ton of food wheat if they conclude an agreement with the Ministry.
