LAG “Central Istria” in cooperation with “IstraMet” started a project to install networking and professional agri-meteorological station in the town of Pazin, which will be realized in the next two months.
Meteorological data will be presented in an attractive but simple interface and adapted to the general population. In addition to the basic parameters, data on soil moisture and leaf will be collected and publicly displayed, which will significantly facilitate the implementation of agro-meteorological projects in our area in the future.
On the technical side it is the most modern equipment that will serve farmers throughout central Istria.
The project will be the basis for further development and expansion of the network of specialized agro-meteorological stations, all in order to facilitate the implementation of crop protection, rational irrigation, and finally environmental protection.
The project is implemented with financial support from the County of Istria.
July 12 in Poreč and July 13 in Pazin Fisheries Local Action Group “Istrian Solea” hosted a round table entitled “Sea From a Young Age”.
Round tables were held within the implementation of the project, which is aimed at encouraging the consumption of fresh, local fish and other marine organisms in the educational institutions (nurseries, kindergartens and primary schools) to promote desirable eating habits from an early age.
On that occasion, relevant stakeholders were gathered to share their knowledge and experience that can contribute to the development of a model to introduce fresh, local fish on the menus of educational institutions in the area. Based on the established conclusions that showed that the interest and possibilities for realization of such a project exists, FLAG “Istrian Solea” will form the next steps for the successfull implementation.
Within the project “Sea From a Young Age” further research activities are planned as well as educational classes of culinary staff of educational institutions, publication of promotional cookbooks and final presentation of the project within the Fisheries Festival that will be held in September in Poreč.
