AGREEN project applies the method “Crop Modeling” to experiment with endemic crops, adapted to specific environmental, social and economic conditions in the Black Sea region. To that end 3 of the project partners have developed 6 climate-smart crop models for different crops to be tested on plots in Bulgaria, Turkey and Georgia. The purpose of this experiment is to provide the 6 climate-smart crop models to farmers, professionals and other stakeholders in order to demonstrate the opportunities to rely on endemic sorts to adapt to climate change and still secure marketable produce and to promote the benefits of the conservation and sustainable agriculture in the Black Sea region.
