Establishing the pilot areas of the project

Members of the partner groups visited the pilot areas, which had been suggested by local bodies in cooperation with RodaxAgro. During the site visits, the geographic distribution of the participating farmers’ parcels was recorded, as well as the hydro-geological properties of the areas, while samples were collected for plant health scoping. In addition, the members made informal presentations to the producer groups, participating in the project on a voluntarily basis, about the project aims and the expected results, and also about the obligations of the farmers, regarding monitoring all their actions and inputs to the parcels. Also, on-site discussions with local producers were carried out, regarding their views on the problems and challenges faced by olive crops, and their opinions about potential solutions.
