The establishment of

common methodologies

for the implementation of

reduced input

agriculture

in both countries

The use and implementation of modern technology

for

encouraging Good Agricultural Practices

on the areas

Pilot implementation of operations for future use

and evaluation for the rural population of the cross

border region.

Increase in product quality

(6)

MAIN ACTIVITIES

Establishment of a

telemetric network

for

transmitting harmonized field data

Development of an

decision support

system

(DSS) for reduced input farming

applications

Delivery of

common implementation

protocols

for effective farm planning and

management

Education and training

of Greek and

Bulgarian farmers

(7)

EXPECTED BENEFITS

7

Maximization of production

by identifying the areas of reduced

productivity and managing them in a different way compared to the

whole field

Through reduced input operations farmers are

conformed with

European Directives

that require them to comply with legislative

rules concerning farm management and environmental issues

Economical improvement of crop production

through the

reduced usage of fertilizers applied and water

Provision of

opportunities for better resource management

and

reduction of wastage

Minimization of the risk to the environment

particularly

with respect to nitrate leaching and groundwater contamination via

the optimization of agrochemical products

(8)

EXPECTED BENEFITS

8

Numerous data to be used

Prevention of environmental degradation in areas of

great ecological value

Basis for revision of the AGRO 2 to include

certification practices reduced input agriculture .

Increased commercial value of dynamic products

(asparagus, kiwi, etc.) through this certification.

Creation of Cluster

Helpdesk – Support for Aristotle’s University and

Interbalkan Environment Center
