Egedeniz Textile: May Update – Regenerative Wheat Harvest Nears, Regenerative Cotton and Hemp Blooming

Regenerative Cotton Hemp Agriculture Egedeniz Textile

Egedeniz Group has been running regenerative organic agricultural projects in the Aegean region. Regenerative organic cotton and hemp, grown locally by our long-term contracted farmers can be a proper source for the slow and cautious fashion brand’s sourcing choice.

Project 1: Regenerative Organic Cotton Agriculture in the Aegean Region
(Partners: UTAEM, ETO)

  • Thriving Regenerative Wheat: Our first regenerative wheat crop, a pioneering achievement for Türkiye, is nearing harvest! We expect to bring it in within the next few days. We’re planning a farm day event where Egedeniz family members will join our dedicated farmers to celebrate this achievement and learn more about regenerative agriculture practices.
  • Data & Analysis: We’re excited to analyze this project’s CO2 emissions and soil health elements. This data will be crucial for measuring the impact of our regenerative practices.
  • Restoring Soil Health: By allowing the soil to rest and regenerate through crop rotation, we aim to increase its organic matter content, leading to long-term fertility and improved crop yields.

Project 2: Regenerative Organic Cotton & Hemp Farm (Partner: ASTAB)

  • Efficient Irrigation: We’ve successfully installed drip irrigation systems for cotton and hemp fields. This ensures water use is optimized, maximizing plant growth while minimizing waste.
  • Weed Management with Benefits: We’ve chosen to remove weeds, fostering collaboration with our farmers manually. These removed weeds are left on the soil surface, acting as a natural mulch to retain moisture and suppress future weed growth.
  • Thriving Plants: It’s exciting to see cotton leaves and hemp plants flourishing side-by-side! The cotton’s leaf area and canopy development are well underway, signifying a healthy and promising season.
