Turkmenistan is planning to export most of the received mung beans (about 9,000 tons) to China, Japan and Southeast Asian countries, Trend reports with reference to the "Zolotoy Vek" (Golden Age) newspaper.

The products that are planned to be exported will be received in the second half of September, namely from 10,000 tons of mung beans, the report says.

More than 12,000 hectares of land are allocated for growing mung beans this year, which is several times more than before.

The members of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan started the project on breeding mash bean for export supplies in 2019. Currently, the Mas Taslamasy project involves more than 100 agricultural producers who are members of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan.

In general, the volume of import-substituting products is growing in the country, and this leads to an increase in the country's exports.

Reportedly, agriculture in Turkmenistan is developing rapidly. It is one of the most important sectors of the country's economy. The main types of agricultural crops grown on the territory of Turkmenistan are wheat, cotton, rice, sugar beet, fodder, vegetable and fruits.

The development of agriculture is carried out on a scientific basis. Various types of agricultural crops are grown taking into account the agro-ecological characteristics of the country's regions.

Special attention is paid to increasing the volume of products in Turkmenistan. As a result, in recent years, the country has increased the production of vegetables and fruit and berries and enlarged the area of perennial plants, vineyards and greenhouses.
