Grant Support for Greenhouses

hibe

Grant support for greenhouse establishment in Turkey is provided through various programs. In particular, grants offered under Rural Development Supports can be used to support greenhouse construction and modernization projects. These supports cover both the construction of new greenhouses and the technological renovation and modernization of existing greenhouses. In addition, support varies according to various types of investments.

Applicants are required to be registered in the Greenhouse Registration System (ÖKS). Grants usually cover a percentage of the investment cost and can vary depending on the size of the project. Higher support rates are offered for greenhouses to be built using renewable energy sources. These subsidies generally cover items such as greenhouse construction, infrastructure works, concrete works, covering materials and irrigation systems(Turkey’s Agriculture Website).

The main programs providing grants for greenhouse construction in Turkey are provided under the Support to Rural Development Investments Program run by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. This program offers various grant opportunities to support greenhouse investments:

Investors must complete their applications with the necessary documents within the application period and submit the documents to the relevant provincial directorate(Agriculture and Forestry Düzce).

  1. Payment Plans: The financing provided under the grant varies depending on the nature and scope of the project. Usually, a certain percentage of the project cost is given as a grant and the rest must be provided from the investor’s own resources(DevletDestekli.Com).

Here are some common examples:

Small Scale Projects: These types of projects usually receive higher grant rates. For example, 50% to 70% of the project cost can be covered by grants.

Medium-scale Projects: Medium-scale projects can usually receive between 40% and 60% of the total cost.

Large Scale Projects: Grant rates are generally lower for large projects. Grant support for such projects can range from 30% to 50% of the total cost.

These rates, which vary depending on the nature, sector and objectives of the projects, may also vary according to the region and socio-economic conditions in which the investment is made. More incentive rates are often offered for start-up projects, while support rates may be lower for projects such as the modernization of existing businesses.

  1. Grant Amounts and Limits: Specific lower and upper limits are usually set for projects. For example, for some projects, the grant upper limit may be set at 1,000,000 TL, while the lower limit may be set at 50,000 TL. The grant amount may also vary according to the project(DevletDestekli.Com) (Agriculture and Forestry Düzce).

This process and documentation may vary according to the specific conditions of the grant program to which the investor applies. Therefore, it is important to visit the official website of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and contact the provincial directorates directly for the most up-to-date and detailed information. Each grant scheme may have its own application deadlines, required documents and payment terms.
