The Minister of Agriculture, Muhammad Karim al-Khafaji, announced that there is no support for the Iraqi agricultural sector.
"There is no support for the agricultural sector, but the farmer alone fights the Corona virus, border crossings and hemorrhagic fever," Al-Khafaji said, speaking during a symposium organized in Baghdad and followed by "Al-Iqtisad News".
But the Minister of Finance, Ali Allawi, confirms that the agricultural sector is supported by the state with large sums of money, by buying wheat, rice and barley from farmers at prices higher than international prices, in addition to subsidizing seeds and water exploration.
