Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation Al Sayed Al Quseir held on Thursday 17/9/2020 a meeting to follow up the progress made in the implementation of the farmer's card system.
During the meeting, Al Quseir stressed the importance of accelerating the measures required to put the system into effect according to the set timetable and completing the system by next January at the most.
The new system will help farmers receive the subsidies they are entitled to and will also help to establish a vast database and provide precise information for state agricultural planning and design purposes.
Two phases of the system have been already launched; the first included governorates of Port Said, and Gharbiya, while the second covered Sohag, Assuit, Sharqiya, and Beheira, the minister said.
The Agriculture Ministry is set to launch the third phase in Fayyoum, Menoufia, Qalyubya, Giza, Luxor, and Daqahlia.
