Agriculture remains a priority for the Georgian government, Georgian Presidential Spokesperson Manana Manjgaladze said at a traditional briefing today.
She said the president's activity last week was mostly devoted to the agricultural projects.
"The meeting between the president and the population in Samegrelo and Shida Kartli were very interesting," she said. "The purpose of these events was to familiarize our rural people who still live in poverty, with innovations that are being implemented in the agricultural sector."
She said diversified service centers were opened for farmers in 2012. Along with an agricultural machinery industrial park, there are modern laboratories in Zestafoni, Abasha, Akhaltsikhe, Kareli, Gurjaani and Marneuli.
They can conduct tests in laboratories at a minimal cost and buy fertilizers and chemicals at discounted prices.
"Our main task in the short term is to provide these centers with many tractors and other types of equipment," she said. "The most important thing is to inform farmers how to get more products and thus more revenue."
