Project objectives/short summary

_________________

The ˝Green Oasis˝ project strengthened entrepreneurship and increased competitiveness of SMEs in agricultural production sector in cross-border area of Posavina. It used existing agricultural potential, resources and know-how and combined them with new technologies used in agriculture.
Through various promotional activities such as organization of the ˝Green Oasis˝ fair, participation in agricultural fairs and auctions of agricultural products, the project provided local agricultural producers from both countries with an opportunity to present their products and establish new partnerships. Moreover, it raised awareness of local agricultural producers about profitable opportunities in agricultural entrepreneurship. With an aim to increase the share of eco-production in agricultural production of Posavina, the project provided trainings and practical support to agricultural producers who wish to shift from conventional to eco-production. Ten eco-producers of greenhouse vegetables, honey, fruits and aromatic plants received assistance in developing business plans and were provided with high quality seedlings and adequate equipment. Eco-producers were also advised on the best measures to be taken throughout the production cycle of a particular eco-product starting from the soil analysis to the final product storage. Installation of greenhouse and construction of a seed bank expanded existing capacities for agricultural production in cross-border area and provided ground for the enhancement of sustainable eco-production in the future.
