Minister of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries Samir Taieb said drones will be used to secure agricultural and grain crops so as to contain the wave of fire on agricultural lands the recent days.
He said that he will hold talks with Interior Minister Hichem Fourati on the issue of the blazes damaging a number of hectares of agricultural lands.
The National grain harvest will be secured by using drone technology, which is suggested to make the process facilitated.
Taieb noted that: “for the first time, drones will be used to secure the harvest and monitor the suspects to be at the origin of the fires.”
He added that Tunisia by now provided training to forty youths for the drone usage.
