11.08.2015 By: Transfer LBC and EDENA

As part of the follow-up of the agricultural plantations of 2014-2015, the team of EDENA monitors the entire farm during the month of June and obtained the results of harvests:

Cereals:

·         Barley Zone A (05/06/2015).

·         Barley Zone B (04/06/2015).

·         Barley Zone C (05/06/2015).

Legumes:

·         Pea located in Zone B (04/06/2015).

·         Lentil located in Zone B: lentil is not harvested; a harvest test was conducted (04/06/ 2016) given the low-rise and low crop development. The high price of the work of the machinery per hour compared with underperformance forced the team to stop the work.

In order to provide more accurate data of the yields they have reduced the gross surface of cultivation, the surfaces of steep banks and margins of the plantation.
