AMMAN – The closure of Jordan’s borders with neighboring countries, namely Syria and Iraq, has inflicted losses on Jordan and its farmers, the farmers said.اضافة اعلان

The argument came amid comments by Agriculture Minister Khaled Al-Hneifat during a meeting with UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Director-General Qu Dongyu, tuesday.

Hneifat said 75% of the Jordanian border has been closed due to unrest in neighboring countries, such as Iraq and Syria. Accordingly, the ministry has developed the National Plan for Sustainable Agriculture, which has been in effect since the beginning of 2022.

Farmer Jamal Masalha said the closure of the Syrian border alone “cost Jordanian farmers more than JD 80 million over the last decade”. He explained that the loss was due to products from the plastic greenhouses, which were intended for export to Eastern Europe, Ukraine and Russia.

“At a cost of 1,700 to 1,800 JD per piece, there were 22,000 plastic greenhouses in Jordan whose production was intended for export to Eastern European markets via Syria,” he said. -he declares. News from Jordan.

But the export has been hampered by developments in Syria, he said. He noted that “the plan was to increase that number to 50,000 within a few years.”

“But now we have zero,” he said.

During the Syrian civil war, farmers were forced to sell their produce locally, including greenhouse produce, he said. This led to an increase in supply, coupled with a drop in demand, which drove prices down.

Alternatively, some farmers opted for exports via Israel to avoid further losses, he added.

“The border inspection with Syria lasted 8-10 days, which blocked shipments of Jordanian products for 22 days for each shipment from Jordan to Russia,” he said.

Noting that the produce was spoiling along the way, he said, “It was not good and resulted in huge losses for Jordanian farmers.”

He pointed out that the closure of the Syrian border has led to a drop in exports to Europe by 40-50%.

Walid Al Rabei, a Jordan Valley farmer who exported through Syria, said Jordanian farmers “need to export more than half of their overall production to make ends meet and maintain the profitable local price range”.

But because of the closures, “many farmers have gone bankrupt, and the majority of them now face legal liabilities,” Rabei said. News from Jordan.

Rabei proposed a barter system, which would allow Jordanian farmers to exchange products with Syrian and Lebanese farmers to compensate for some of the past losses.

“But there are powers at play here,” he warned, referring to the business and financial ramifications involved. “There are powerful producers and exporters in Jordan, who don’t want to see other farmers bringing the same products they import to the local market,” he explained.

As a result, export remains the only currently viable solution for Jordanian farmers, according to Rabei.

Agriculture ministry spokesman Lawrence Al-Majali said the ministry had been waiting for several years for “the situation in Iraq and Syria to be resolved, to restore agricultural exports to and through the traditional markets of Jordan “.

“The closure of the Syrian and Iraqi borders has caused Jordanian exports to and through Iraq and Syria to drop from 250,000 tonnes to nothing in a few years,” he said.

“Obviously, the ministry needs to find solutions, looking at the situation from the outside,” Majali added.

According to Majali, the national plan involved the creation of the Jordanian-Palestinian Agricultural Marketing Company, “which has won numerous contracts to export local products to markets in Europe and the Gulf, among other destinations”.

In fact, a recent shipment headed to Qatar ahead of the World Cup there, he noted.

“Another measure that was adopted to support the agricultural sector in Jordan was the introduction of interest-free loans to finance certain products demanded in the local market and abroad,” Majali said.

Additionally, the ministry is working to market surplus production of olives, dates and other products, the spokesperson said.

The National Plan for Sustainable Agriculture “addresses these issues to restore the profitability of the agricultural sector and find new export markets for local products, which could help revitalize the local sector in Jordan”, according to Majali.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – With the recent drought leaving some trees in the area vulnerable to exposure and damage, some local forestry companies are concerned about wind potential with the chance of a Friday night thunderstorm.

Not only have the recent windy days downed some tree limbs and limbs in the area, but a thunderstorm with wind gusts over 39 mph can knock tree limbs and limbs down as well. Once the wind speed approaches 55 mph or more, some trees can easily be uprooted. Jordan Odem, the owner of The Tree Doctor and certified arborist, recently responded to several calls about fallen branches and tree limbs. He certainly notices the impact of the drought on the trees in the area while others remain resilient.

“A lot of our evergreen trees were hit harder than others,” Odem says. As for what it looks like now, a lot of softwood trees will be the first to be damaged. Many trees that have heavier foliage or heavier fruit or nuts still clinging to the branches, these are also the trees that will take a hit. The more heavily wooded trees, hardwoods versus softwoods, fare a little better in storms.

The Tree Doctor and other tree companies provide storm preparedness services to homeowners and commercial customers. Odem says preventive service can be quite comprehensive.

“We look at all their trees, their condition below ground to above ground,” says Odem. “We treat certain trees with amendments to help condition the soil and provide nutrition for what the tree is not getting. We sometimes thin the tree to allow sunlight and wind to move through the trees. We reinforce and wire the weaker branches that maybe cannot be removed for one reason or another. We provide that extra stability with a cable and brace situation.

For homeowners who don’t have time before a windy day or storms hit for preventative services, Odem encourages customers to inspect trees for themselves long before the storms arrive.

“Get out before the storm and look into the canopy of your trees,” he says. “If you see dead limbs that might fall off during a storm, it’s best to stay away from that part of the house. If you have trees that you know are damaged or haven’t been tended to for a while, it may be a good idea to move to another part of the house.

Plus, he says there are simple steps you can take to make sure your car or other property is as free from tree and wind damage as possible.

“If you’re looking in your trees and you know you have dead branches up there or something that can be dislodged during the storm, it might be wise to clear some space out of the garage and move your car inside or away from the tree.”

If homeowners experience tree damage, Odem encourages customers to do their research when looking for a reputable company to help with any cleanup.

“If you’re looking to bring someone onto the property, check their credentials to be a certified arborist,” says Odem. “You can check if they have adequate insurance. Having adequate insurance to be on your property is extremely important. You want to make sure that the certified arborist who goes out will be properly insured. That way, if something goes wrong, the worst case scenario is that they’re covered. You are covered. There would be no doubt if you hired the right person.

For additional tips on caring for trees after storm damage and other information on finding a reputable company for preventative maintenance or damage services, we have tips courtesy of the Department of Missouri Conservancy.

Remember the hilarious TV sitcom Three’s Company in the late 1970s and early 1980s (I know 30-somethings and less likely not), featuring comedians John Ritter, Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers?

This column has its own Three’s Company characters, though not as funny and pretty, just kidding: Don Granda Jr., Dan Francis, and Ryan Williams.

A week without 300 games or sets of 800s, the keglers above did the next best thing – throwing two 700s each – proving once again why they are in the top tier of homegrown bowlers.

Here are details about their scorching nights:

  • Moving up to 16 pounds in his bowling gear is paying dividends for Granda Jr. The bowling legend, who threw two 300 games earlier this month, nearly hit an 800 streak in the Wednesday Night League at Lakeside Lanes with games of 267, 268 and 257 for a 792. He also shot a 701 in Businessmen League.
  • Talented Francis was rockin’ and rollin’ again as the explosive right-hander shot 228, 278 and 253 for a 759 in the Wednesday Night League at Lakeside Lanes and kicked a 269 and 717 in the Spa League at Lost Lanes.
  • Williams did his 700 damage at Plaza Lanes, shooting 246, 246 and 254 games for a 746 in the Mixed Nuts League and 278 and 241 games for a 709 in the Commercial League.

This columnist/bowler used to take these three pin crushers to any high stakes bowling tournament.

In another 700 action at Plaza Lanes, Anthony Card – fresh off his first career 800 streak two weeks ago with an 814 at Lin Van Lanes in Titusville – threw a 257 game and a 733 streak and Tyler Barnes threw 237 and 258 for a 712 in the Monday Night Invitational League and Jim Scrivens – a rookie in the column this year – shot 257 and 255 for a 714 in the Commercial League.

At Lakeside Lanes, Mike Almon, the former Crawford County Series record holder with an 865 (the incredible Granda Jr. now holds the record with an 873), pitched 279 and 238 games for an 714 in the NFL Mixed League.

Beerbower blow ’em up

A bowler with the last name, Beerbower, was locked and loaded last week in the Thursday Night All-Stars League at Rolling Meadows in Erie.

Not the Beerbower you think.

Josh Beerbower – the older brother of former Cat’s Bowler of the Year crusher Seth Beerbower (who you’ll also read about below) – didn’t often miss the 1-3 pocket as he shot 246, 256 games and 277 for a jaw-dropping series 779, a career high.

Great shoot, Josh!

Beerbower’s pal Ricky Kanline was also zeroed as he threw games of 233, 267 and 224 for a 724. He flirted with his second career 300 game in his 267 by throwing the front nine before leaving a stoned 7-pin on his 10th shot.

The custard shines

Savannah Custard’s smooth shot showed most Commercial League men at Plaza Lanes how it’s done.

Custard, author of a career 300 game, turned 247 and 259 games for an impressive series of 684.

Great shoot, Savannah!

In women’s action at Lost Lanes, Natalie Hanks – who won 14,300 career games during her incredible Pennsylvania State Hall of Fame career – threw 650 and 619 series in the Women’s League of the Wednesday Night and Tuesday Night Ladies League, respectively, and Whitney Keener, finalist for Cat’s Women’s Bowler of the Year last season, pitched 235 and a total of 616 in the Sunday Mixed League.

At Plaza Lanes, Kayla Card, wife of Anthony – Lin Van Lanes’ female dominatrix in Titusville for many years – shot a game 224 and a streak of 629 in the Monday Night Invitational League.

On the bridge

Thanks for the email, Ramon Rodriguez.

On Tuesday night in Commercial League, Plaza Lanes co-owner Rodriguez let this columnist know that silky Seth Beerbower kicked off his second career 800 streak with games of 238, 267 and 299 for an 804. He left a solid 10 pin in its 299 games.

Full details on Beerbower’s phenomenal performance in next week’s column.

Congratulations, Seth!

Closing words

Rest easy, BC. Your good humored and wise personality will be missed by the community.

KENNETT – Friends across Chester County have paid tribute to the invaluable importance of conservation thanks to the good work of people working together to make a difference.

The event took place in the grand ballroom of the historic Mendenhall Inn in Kennett Township. The moment marked the annual dinner and silent auction of the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance, founded in 1945.

The Brandywine Red Clay Alliance is the oldest association of small watersheds in America.

And this year, the alliance has grown.

In April, the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance completed a successful merger with The Land Conservation of Southern Chester County.

The merger was the end result of a 22-month process, said Jim Jordan, executive director of the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance.

Law firm Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP donated more than $80,000 in merger labor time to make the dream a reality. Jordan expresses special thanks to attorneys David A. Ebby and F. Douglas Raymond.

The Land Conservation of Southern Chester County and the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance have now joined forces for land preservation, watershed conservation and environmental education. And it was greatly celebrated on Thursday night at the Mendenhall Inn.

The Alliance is based in Pocopson Township at the 318-acre Myrick Conservation Center. With the completion of the merger, the nonprofit now has a location in Kennett Township, which will become a new focal point for educational efforts with local and regional youth.

Following the amalgamation, the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance is now the steward of seven reserves in the Brandywine and Red Clay watersheds totaling over 1,000 acres and 42 easements over 1,200 acres.

Sponsors of Thursday’s annual benefit for the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance included presenting sponsor Flyway Excavating, Inc.; reception sponsor Hicks Brothers IV; and Meadow Springs Farm; gold sponsors Pennsylvania American Water and Phillips Mushroom Farms; and silver sponsors Brandywine Valley Heating & Air Conditioning; Brown Advisory, LLC; Manito Abstract Co.; TRUIST; and Veolia.

“Supporting the Red Clay Alliance aligns pretty well with our company’s stated core value of being visibly present and participatory in the communities we serve,” said Krystal Dombay, director of sales at Brandywine Valley Heating & Air Conditioning at West Goshen. She said the West Chester-based company supports many non-profit organizations that benefit the Chester County community.

“We believe in the goals and the good work the Alliance is known for,” she said.

The Brandywine Red Clay Alliance thanks the attorneys at the law firm Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP for volunteering their time to ensure that the merger with The Land Conservancy of South Chester County can become a reality. (JEN SAMUEL – DAILY LOCAL NEWS)
