The General Organization for Seeds Multiplication is still continuing to produce forestry and fruitful seedlings within the project of plant nursery, which started last season 2015-2016, where many forestry and fruitful seedlings were produced. It is expected to produce about 560000 seedlings in the next season 2016 – 2017 ( (20,000 cypress, 20.000 pine, 10.000 olives, 5,000 apples, pears, peaches, grapes and citrus, 500,000 agricultural seedlings: tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, cauliflowers and cabbage).
About 100,000 beneficiaries will benefit directly from this project while 2,000,000 beneficiaries will benefit indirectly.
The project targets all the liberated areas in the provinces of Aleppo, Idlib, Hama and Latakia. The plant nursery is located in the northwest area of Aleppo on the high way that links Daret Aza town with Taladeh village.
The idea of the project emerged as a result of the absence of reliable actors working on the production of forestry and fruitful seedlings, and to compensate for the shortage in their numbers as a result of fires caused by shelling, and unjust cutting by people with the aim of heating due to the absence of heating sources or their high cost if any.
