Farmers’ involvement in the whole process of producing and marketing agricultural products can eliminate the need for middlemen, agriculture minister Mahmoud Hojjati said during the opening ceremony of a 6,000-ton cold storage facility in the northwestern city of Urmia on Saturday. It is crucial to get the farmers involved in agricultural research as well as in providing technical services, processing, maintenance, and marketing of their farm products, the minister insisted. Elsewhere, Hojjati said that 13,000 billion rials (roughly $480 million) has been paid in damages to the farmers in West Azarbaijan Province due to the cold snap in early spring. He added that farmers should make use of various technologies in production process to reduce possible damages.
