In this way, DİTAP will enable the producer to earn more income, the agricultural product desired by the industry will be access and the consumer to access agricultural products cheaper. In DITAP, the chain from seed to fork is followed, production and supply are provided, and planned production is supported. Also, herbal, animal and fishery products can be sold directly and by the contract production, prices are predictable before the season started and export markets are expanding. In addition, with the Agricultural Land Rental Module, which has been newly added to the system, farmers will be able to rent their lands over DITAP. Real / legal entities can apply DITAP electronically through the portal address ditap.etarim.gov.tr and all necessary transactions are also carried out electronically.Users who are separated as Buyer and Producer (seller) can create requests and offers through the system. The demands created by the buyers can be easily seen by the producers in the region and bids can be made for these demands. Offers from more than one producer can be given to the created demand and the buyer can evaluate the offer he/she wants. In the contract to be made between the Buyer and the Seller, all details such as Quantity, Price, Production Type, Cash/In-kind Advance, Production Place, Order Date, Delivery Date, Shipping, Packaging are predetermined and both parties can trade safely. Contracts on DITAP can be signed both with a wet signature and with an electronic signature.The Map Analysis page allows the producer to examine statistics and analyzes on the area where the product to be produced. In addition, instant weather forecast and warnings are shown on the home page for buyers and sellers.|
