Bluleaf®’s adventure in Kosovo has come to end: let’s resume the last days in Kosovo and the final Workshop
In the last few days in Kosovo we’ve been employed on field, not just for tracking installed stations, but above all, to pick up moods of customers who have been using Bluleaf® in the last year on their crops. Thanks to a close confrontation with farmers and technicians we have learned is their strict need for systems like Bluleaf® in a land that often faces long periods of intense heat and precipitation scarcity.
In Friday, 14th July, there has been set up a Workshop by Bekim Hoxha: Director of the Department of Wine Vineyard Fabrizio Contento: Kosagri Project Manager, Sylejman Bala: Department Engineer, Mladen Todorovic: IAMB – CIHEAM and Mario Zippitelli frpm Sysman.
The workshop was attended by both agronomists and computer technicians from Ministry, as well as farmers, interested in knowing potentials of new technologies applied to crop management of these lands.
The workshop aimed to show not only results of KOSAGRI project but also how use of these technologies on these lands could be an important resource to boost Kosovar Agriculture. After the initial greetings by the Director of the Ministerial Department of Viticulture and the summary of the project results achieved by Fabrizio Contento, the following interventions concerned characteristics and use of early warning systems Agriculture to manage disasters such as droughts, infections and frost (Mladen Todorovic), use of irrigation monitoring and management technologies (Mario Zippitelli) and a short demo of Netsens, Vinesens (Sylejman Bala) software.
The second part of our adventure in Kosovo ended, but not our deep commitment to KOSAGRI project, our work continues fiercely hoping to give the right incentive for the development of Agriculture in these thriving lands.
