For conducting follow-up studies in order to evaluate the success of the "Soil Cover Management and Soil Erosion Control" sub-measure implemented in Beypazarı under the "Agri-Environment, Climate and Organic Farming" Measure and to provide the data necessary for the calculation of the payments of the "Biodiversity" sub-measure, whose revision studies are ongoing, "Technical Assistance Project for Sub-Measure Studies under Agri-Environment" has been realized.

Surveys have been conducted between 15-17 December 2020 with the farmers from Özyurt, Adatoprakpınar, Sinanlı, Uzunbeyli, Yüzükbaşı, Yağcıoğlu, İnler, Şeyhahmetler villages of Polatlı, which was selected as the pilot for biodiversity. The reason for choosing these villages is that the great bustard is more common in these villages around TIGEM. Information on crops sown, ploughing types, fertilization, pesticides, harvest times, general livelihoods, planting, mowing, labour costs, etc. was received through these surveys.
