Biodiversity and Agricultural Practices
Existing yield-oriented agricultural practices negatively affect the structure of the soil and the living ecosystems in the regions where they operate, causing disruption in production processes. The negative effects of productivity-enhancing chemicals on product quality and food safety also directly affect human life. A healthy structure of the soil, which is a natural resource especially in carbon storage, is seen as an important factor for both product quality and protection of biodiversity. In this context, the importance of restorative and regenerative agricultural practices is increasing day by day for the protection of biodiversity, which has a critical importance in the fight against the climate crisis. It is important to monitor and renew biodiversity, which is critical for the continuity of natural systems, and to increase diversity.
As Yıldız Holding and its companies, the importance of biodiversity in agricultural areas where we carry out most of our operations also affects the sustainability of production activities. In this direction, we carry out projects for the protection of natural ecosystems and biodiversity, and carry out research, monitoring and protection studies in the regions where we operate. We cooperate with various stakeholders, primarily farmers and non-governmental organizations, in order to consider the projects holistically and to conduct them on scientific grounds.
