This is a digital agro-platform through which farmers of these regions will receive information about the expected weather promptly and weather-related information.

 

The platform is operated by the Rural Development Agency in coordination with the Scientific Research Center of Agriculture and the National Environment Agency. During these two days  the training participants discussed the importance of prompt notification about the expected weather. At the same time the agriculture experts touched on some agrotechnical works that will be carried out in wine and fruit crops after the assessment of the changes in weather patterns.

 

 

The attendees were addressed by Zviad Bobokashvili  Head of Fruit Crops Research Service  and Tekla Zakalashvili  Head of Invitro Laboratory. They along with theoretical training, introduced the participants to the progressive methods of green operations and whole-farming with practical examples. The farmers  received information about ongoing research and scientific projects in the direction of fruit growing, viticulture(growing grapes for winemaking), and integrated plant protection at the demonstration bases.
