FRUITENIA, a four-year project officially launched in 2020, marked its first anniversary. Were the short-term goals set for the initial phase of the project achieved? We are saying, YES!
Despite the challenges and difficulties in 2020, the project team worked hard to ensure steady progress of the project in terms of its annual deliverables and objectives.
FRUTENIA team spared no efforts to achieve the best result possible and built the capacity for further processes and activities.
Here is the past year put in a nutshell.
In 2020 the FRUITENIA team started the establishment processes of the demonstrative intensive orchard, which is one of the strategic outcomes of the project. The intensive orchard should be standing out among other conventional fruit production orchards due to its modern and innovative solutions. These will enable the ANAU professors and students to be equipped with knowledge of non-traditional agricultural practices and will inspire our future generation to adopt suchlike approaches to enhance their productivity and support to manage the precious resources wisely. The most vivid activities carried out in 2020 were soil quality improvement works, the acquisition of new agricultural equipment, etc.
