Yozgat Province, Turkey - May 17th, 2009

Land in central Turkey’s Yozgat province takes a mottled appearance due to adjacent fields with different colored crops.

Turkey is one of the few countries in the world that is self-sufficient in terms of food. The country’s fertile soil, access to sufficient water, a suitable climate, and hard-working farmers, all make for a successful agricultural sector.

In addition, a broad range of crops can be raised because of the variety of different climates throughout the land.

Several lakes and rivers provide irrigation for agriculture in this area. The lake just left of center is the Gelingullu Reservoir, which irrigates 20 474 ha. It was created by the Gelingullu Dam on the Konak River.
