[size=52]Turkey and Iran are behind the decision.. A shocking decision for farmers and farmers to cut the winter plan in half[/size]

[size=45]Wasit / Jabbar Bechai[/size]
[size=45]The agricultural and agricultural circles were surprised by the decision to reduce the winter plan by half compared to last year. Peasants, farmers and specialists in the agricultural sector in Wasit considered the decision of the ministries of water resources and agriculture in question, a strong blow dealt to the agricultural sector in the province, which will lose about 700 thousand acres of its agricultural plan for the winter season and deprive Iraq of cultivation Two million and 500 thousand acres of wheat crop.[/size]
[size=45]Hazem Al-Mohsen, an expert in economic affairs, says that "such a decision reflects the government's confusion in facing external challenges, including the scarcity of water, which is behind the neighboring countries, and at the same time indicates the failure of the Iraqi negotiator and his lack of steadfastness against his Iranian and Turkish counterparts in obtaining Iraq's sufficient share of water."[/size]
[size=45]He added, "After Iraq reached self-sufficiency in grains, especially wheat, we find it today on its way to a serious decline, which means the return of importing grains from abroad and spending millions of dollars that can be employed in the agricultural sector so that the country achieves sufficiency in other agricultural products, but rather becomes a source for them and obtains Hard currency instead of getting out of it.” He stressed that "the decision to reduce the winter season plan by half is behind the insistence of Turkey and Iran to deprive Iraq of its natural right to water through the tributaries that originate from the two countries."[/size]
[size=45]The Ministry of Agriculture, in coordination with the Ministry of Water Resources, approved on the seventeenth of this year the agricultural plan for the winter season for this year, after reducing the area of ​​lands covered by the plan by half, due to the water crisis experienced by the country as a result of low water revenues and the decline of rain, while preventing Cultivation of barley permanently and the exclusion of Diyala Governorate from the plan completely.[/size]
[size=45]For his part, the advisor to the Wasit Governor for Agriculture and Water Resources, Salam Mizal Al-Batekh, believes that “the decision came in extremely difficult circumstances for the Iraqi farmer, as the majority of farmers are saddled with debts because they did not receive the full marketing amounts for the last season and were hoping to produce the next season to pay off their remaining debts.”[/size]
[size=45]He added that "the decline in water revenues from Turkey and Iran is borne by the federal government and specialists in the Ministries of Agriculture and Irrigation, especially the negotiating delegations that fail every time to persuade the two neighbors to release Iraq's water quota guaranteed by international laws."[/size]
[size=45]He explained that "the announcement of the implementation of the decision in conjunction with the farmers' preparations for the winter season represents a clear failure in preparing plans and drawing agricultural policies from the perspective of the correct ranges that distance the farmer from the shock as happened now."[/size]
[size=45]When the decision is implemented, about two million and 500 thousand dunums of the area allocated for cultivation of wheat will be lost, and the barley cultivation plan has been completely excluded, and that the most affected governorates are the governorates of Wasit, Mosul and then Diyala, which were not fully covered by the winter agricultural plan.[/size]
[size=45]The Ministry of Water Resources has indicated that the available water reserves in dams and reservoirs are sufficient to meet the needs of two million five hundred thousand dunams only, but if good amounts of rain fall, the situation will improve.[/size]
[size=45]Regarding the problems facing farmers, the head of the local union of farmer associations in Wasit Sabah Bareed Al-Tamimi says that “reducing the winter season plan in half will have major repercussions on the Iraqi farmer and the farmers of Wasit in particular, given that Wasit is the bread basket of Iraq and annually produces more than 800 thousand tons. of wheat.”[/size]
[size=45]He added, "We will not stand idly by in the face of this unjust decision, and we will not remain silent about the violation of the rights of the farmer and forcing him to leave half his land and not cultivate it, especially since Wasit is characterized by reclaimed lands with high productivity."[/size]
[size=45]Al-Tamimi said, "There must be a study that determines the areas with high yields and does not include them by reducing and focusing on unreclaimed lands, because what is important to us is the quantities of production that supply the Iraqi economy, fill the country's needs and prevent import."[/size]
[size=45]Al-Tamimi does not rule out that “Wasit and other governorates will witness vigils and agricultural demonstrations to reverse the decision and oblige the Ministries of Water Resources and Agriculture to take full responsibility and hold accountable all those who neglected the agriculture and irrigation sector and did not focus on building dams to store water instead of wasting it towards the Shatt al-Arab and then the Arabian Gulf during rainy seasons.” “.[/size]
[size=45]Iraq had finally reached solutions to the water crisis with Turkey, by concluding a joint memorandum of understanding between the two sides, which stipulated Turkey's commitment to release fair and equitable waters to Iraq in the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, while Iran refrained from that and completely dried up the sources of the rivers entering Iraq in violation of that law International.[/size]
[size=45]In light of the Iranian intransigence and procrastination, the Minister of Water Resources, Mahdi Al-Hamdani, threatened to resort to the relevant international organizations to obtain water from Iran in accordance with the water-sharing agreements.[/size]
[size=45]According to the reports of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, the cultivated areas throughout the country last season amounted to five million dunams, of which the Wasit governorate had a share of one million and 350 thousand. Last season, which amounted to about 800 thousand tons, and this will harm more than 25 thousand farmers in Wasit Governorate alone.[/size]
