Turkmenistan is the country with ancient and rich agriculture and today, traditions of rational attitude to the land receive new life.
Farmers have unparalleled benefits. Technical rearmament of the branch is going on rapidly, latest technologies, which together with centuries-old practice of rational land management of the ancestors become a solid foundation for rapid development of agriculture, are actively implemented.
