"BIO-KG" Organic Movement Federations

Developing organic agriculture in the Kyrgyz Republic

The leaders of Naryn region are interested in promoting Organic agriculture

On March 2, 2021, CEO and specialists of FOD “BIO-KG” met with the regional administration of Naryn region.  

Executive director Iskenderbek Aidaraliyev, during a meeting with Adyl Saparov, spoke about the prospects of conducting OSH in organic aymaks “Ortok”,” Dobolu ” located in the Naryn district. According to him, over the past year, farmers in OA have managed to find new sources of income – by planting not only potatoes, but also medicinal herbs on the plots, residents can have a stable income, which should become an alternative source of income to animal husbandry.

As Aidaraliyev noted, from one hundred acres of land, you can harvest marigold, at a cost higher than potatoes by 3-4 times. He also said that organic medicinal plants have regular wholesale buyers.

Deputy governor Adyl Saparov supported the initiative to develop the agricultural sector in the region, and promised to actively contribute to the development of organic products in the Naryn region. As the representative of the regional administration noted, there is an acute shortage of agronomists in the area, and their presence in the distribution of agricultural crops would bring a tangible contribution. The parties intend to draw up a joint action plan to support organic production.
