More than 3.7 billion seedlings have been prepared for planting this winter

More than 3.7 billion seedlings have been prepared out of the 6 billion seedlings to be prepared nationwide this summer, the Ministry of Agriculture said.

He also said that special seedlings are being prepared for neighboring countries.
According to Tefera Tadesse, Director of Natural Resource Development, Conservation and Utilization at the Ministry of Agriculture, this year’s planting of seedlings will be carried out under the motto of "greening together".

According to Tefera, more than 3.7 billion seedlings have been prepared for the winter transplantation, adding that the number does not include counting seedlings growing in the lowlands.

He said seedlings such as fodder are growing in the nursery, adding that a sapling will not be planted if it is soft and does not withstand the sun and light.

"Therefore, the above-mentioned seedlings are at different stages of development but have not been transplanted and all but the seedlings in the southern region will be transplanted by June 25," he said.

According to Tefera, preparations for the seedling transplant program have been underway for 10 to 6 months, he said.
