The Association of Agricultural Academies was founded within the framework of the Islamic Food Security Organisation. The founding countries include Kazakhstan and Tajikistan. The Memorandum of Understanding signed between the parties focuses on partnership in the development and application of scientific methods in agriculture. The member states will exchange effective tools for agro-industrial development. It is planned to share best practices and breeding techniques for certain animals, such as the Kazakh white-headed cattle breed and the Edilbaev and Hissar sheep breeds.
The Director General of the Islamic Food Security Organisation, Prof. Yerlan Alimzhanuly Baidaulet, highlights the cooperation between Tajikistan and Kazakhstan in breeding Kazakh wheat varieties on specially designated land. The organization attaches great importance to the development of the grain industry and wants to work together on its growth.
Tlektes Yespolov, President of the Academy of Agricultural Sciences of Kazakhstan, highlights its work in animal breeding and grain cultivation, especially in the field of genetic resources. The aim is to set up a gene bank in Kazakhstan to preserve their developments and pass them on to future generations.
Overall, the establishment of the Association of Agricultural Academies facilitates cooperation and knowledge sharing among member states, especially in the fields of agriculture and genetic resource conservation, to promote agricultural progress in the region.
