The first harvest at the experimental farm!

Around the middle of November, the first harvest took place at the experimental farm participating in the RicEnviFlow Project, located in Agios Athanasios.

The field was divided into three experimental layouts; in the first one, irrigation is applied according to the common agricultural local practice, while in the other two, the annual applied water is reduced to 75% and 50%, respectively.

The aim was to investigate the qualitative and quantitative changes in crop yield among the three experimental setups of the farm. The results from the harvest of the first year are very satisfactory, as the crop yield exceeded 1,000 kilograms in all the three experimental fields!
