BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:
The Municipality of Divjaka and its partner are developing a project "Rapid Response Agro-Lab, Divjake" to provide the farming areas with appropriate tools for control and response to disease, pest and chemical usage; for the dissemination and establishment of innovative and ecological solutions. In June 2020, the Project has been awarded for a IADSA grant.
By providing a complete testing lab to this area, the Municipality through the project is adding a precious stone in the path of local certification, particularly important for an area that is fundamental for horticulture (together with neighboring Rrogozhinë and Lushnjë) providing in this way also a tool capable to control the quality and the compliance to the rule of the production. Furthermore, the impact of an Integrated Pest Management methodology united with the potential for technical control by a laboratory would lead to a quick betterment of the final product in terms of lowered chemical compounds, thus making the crop more profitable for the market.
This action could, therefore, be considered the beginning of a system for quality control (and support), but also and equally as the foundation of the premises for a "territorial trademark". Finally, being one of the results the lowering of pesticides and other chemicals on crop and in the environment, it must be noted that the action bears an important cross-cutting issue with environmental sustainability. The certainty of such a reduction comes from the consideration that farmers would be more than happy to spend money for chemicals in a targeted and suggested way, instead of randomly spraying their fields with the first thing found in a "farmer pharmacy".
