Tsovagyugh buckwheat to shortly appear in retail market

Tsovagyugh buckwheat to shortly appear in retail market

ArmInfo.At the end of April,  Armenian customers will be able to buy locally produced buckwheat in  the retail market, Minister Agriculture Ignaty Arakelyan was informed  during his visit to Tsovaghyugh village of Gegharqunik region.

As the press-office of the Ministry of Agriculture told ArmInfo, the  Minister of Agriculture visited on Feb 28 the buckwheat processing  factory launched on December 6, 2016 in Tsovaghyugh near Lake Sevan.   Under the European Neighborhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural  Development (ENPARD), farmers were assisted not only to build the  factory, but also to seed buckwheat and to follow its cultivation, as  it was not grown in Armenia during the Soviet period.

The managers of the project assured the Minister of Agriculture that  the first batch of buckwheat processed and pre-packed in Tsovagyugh  will appear in the retail market in late April. According to Governor  of Gegharqunik Rafik Grigoryan, the cropped lands will be enlarged to  1000 ha.

Ignaty Arakelyan noted that the implementation of the programme will  also contribute to import substitution process in the country. To  ensure the stable course of the programme, the Minister promised to  help the farmers to purchase seeds and fertilizers. To recall, ENPARD  was launched in 2015 to create and develop farm cooperatives in  Armenia. The programme is being carried out by FAO, JJY, UNDP and is  co- financed by the EU and the Austrian Development Agency. Vice  Governor of Shirak region Harutyun Arshakyan stated in August 2016  that under ENPARD 510 ha of buckwheat is processed in 6 regions of  Armenia, 240 ha of which - in Shirak region. According to Deputy  Minister of Agriculture Armen Harutyunyan, UN experts estimated that  the crops from 1ha totaled 1.2-3 tonnes. Harutyunyan added that the  year was experimental and next year the crops are expected to grow.
