Apricot this year will be like it was in previous year
Today at the meeting with the journalists the president of the Agrarian Peasants' Union Hrach Berberyan said that the Apricot crop this year will be just as much as it was in the previous year; 25 000 tons of apricot is expected from Ararat region and 10 000 to 12 000 tons in Armavir region.
The speaker mentioned that the situation in Echmiadzin region concerning apricot crop is not satisfactory.
He is mainly speaking of blue stain fungus which is now more intensified because of the humidity.
As for apricot exportation, Hrach Berberyan believes this year the export will not be less than it was last year.
“One of the key achievements of the project implemented with UNDP/GEF support is the inclusion and support of extra-curricular environmental education as a strategic approach. This was a direct result of the series of roundtables jointly organized with EEN members and policymakers,” adds Sahakyan.
