    it says each farm will be 1 hectar (100m x 100m). Tekirdag university showed them spots for 5 farms. They are also talking to Middle-east technical university. They are saying that they won't buy the land, but instead, operate the farms, and educate the land owners. They are also interested in the mined areas near the Syrian border. They say that if the mines are cleared, that land would be great for livestock operations. The rest, you got already.

    Could anyone translate this? I understand the gist to be that following a meeting of the Saudi-Turkish Business Council in Istanbul on 9 June, the Saudi firm Planet Food World announced its plan to set up 20,000 organic farms in Turkey at a cost of US$20 billlion over the next five years. The farms will be specialised in four sectors: crops, fishery, poultry and livestock. Planet Food World say they won't take control of the land but will enter into arrangements with landowners and have up to 200,000 farmworkers working for them. The produce will be for export. Planet Food World also have livestock operations in Ethiopia. If anyone can correct or add anything (e.g. on the amount of land discussed), that would be very helpful. Thanks.
