The persimmon harvest season has begun in Sinjar
The persimmon harvest season has begun in Sinjar province, persimmon cultivation is a new direction in the region. The trees of these fruits were strategically planted in villages in the southern part of Sinjar. Yazidi farmers in the area began to collect persimmons for delivery to Kurdish and Arab wholesalers, carefully sorting and packaging before being sent to the market.
Up to 1,000 persimmon trees were planted in some Yazidi villages. Yazidi farmers have expressed concern about rising diesel fuel prices and low wholesale fruit prices. The main problem faced by farmers in the region is the discrepancy between high production costs and low profit margins.
Farmers of the Sinjar region, who have deep roots in the cultivation of persimmons and other local crops, are actively enriching their agricultural landscapes with new and fertile trees. Their dedication is a testament to their resilience and unwavering commitment to the traditions of their ancestors.
