The RA Ministry of Agriculture is trying to grow dry weather-bearing species in Armenia imported from countries with dry climate to persist the challenges of climate change. Garnik Petrosyan, RA Deputy Minister of Agriculture told about this during the round table on the topic “Land Resources and Food Safety in the Light of Climate Change and Greenhouse Gas Emissions” held at “EcoLur” press club. “We exchange a number of species and those dry weather-bearing species are experimented in different climate conditions of our country. We must look ahead in order to have such species of crops in difficult situations to work under such conditions. Our scientific centers also have such a problem to solve. We must do our best to get species bearing dry weather better, adaptable to adverse conditions and providing sustainable harvest”, Garnik Petrosyan particularly said in his speech.
