JOINT PROJECT FOR CONSERVATION AND SUSTAINABLE USE OF PLANT GENETIC RESOURCES FROM BORDER AREAS AS CONSEQUENCES OF CLIMATE CHANGE

the Programme: 2014 - 2020 Interreg IPA CBC Romania - Serbia.

In the last 100 year, European agriculture suffered significant changes. Beginning of 21st century is marked by a global scarcity of water resources, environmental pollution and increased soil and water salinity. In these circumstances the best solution is to identify, collecting and exploiting local ecotypes of fruit trees and vines grown in the border areas, which are not currently known (except by those in whose households there are).

Presenting a high capacity of tolerance to some abiotic stress factors, fruit trees and grapevine genotypes may represent an important source of genes, with which in the future breeding programs can create varieties with high adaptability to adverse impacts of climate change. On the other hand, local collection of these genotypes will contribute to the identification, protection, conservation, and enhancement of existing natural resources in the border area, thus preserving the identity of the Euroregion in the context of agriculture globalization.

The project expected results are conservation, protection and sustainable use of fruit tree and grapevine germplasm resources in the cross border area, and the establishment of cross-border networks for education and studies concerning the environmental resources, by carrying out the study of germplasm resource evaluation, by organizing the summer school and the setting up a fruit tree and grapevine germplasm repository in the cross-border area.

PARTICIPANTS

The Banat’s University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine “King Michael I of Romania” from Timisoara(BUASVM) is an institution specialized in agronomical and veterinary higher education, with a national and European span.

High Technical School of Veterinary Studies Požarevac was established in 1979 and to date it is the only higher education institution in the Bregi district, founded by the Republic of Serbia. Long-standing existence points to tradition and quality in education. Since its inception, 3284 students have graduated from the Technical College.

IPA PROJEKAT OČUVANJE AUTOHTONIH SORTI VOĆA

Friday September 7, 2018

Visoka tehnička škola strukovnih studija u Požarevcu je u okviru IPA projekta prekogranične saradnje Rumunije i Srbije ugostila kolege iz Rumunije koji su pri radnoj poseti obišli zemljište na kojima se gaji vinova loza i voće a cilj projekta je očuvanje autohtonih sorti voća i vinove loze.
