Project "Role of Traditional Fruit Farming in Regional Development"

....................  erasmus_20161218_1201107176.jpg
In the Romanian Mobility (10. - 14.6. 2016) at the University of Bucharest, we participated in the international scientific conference where our team member Radim Lokoč had his contribution related to fruit growing. We also heard other lectures focused on fruit growing.  On the next day after arrival, we attended the conference at the Agricultural University in Bucharest where we learned something about growing corn, tomatoes, fruit trees, trade with soya, etc. After the conference, we visited the local open air museum with the typical architecture of old villages in Romania. Soon after, we visited the Natural Science Museum with the exhibits of local and world flora and fauna, humans, etc. In the following days, we visited the orchard of a local family; the people were very nice and helpful; they grow trees of apples, plums, pears, quince, cherries and much more. We visited the Baroque-style church in Arges County where the first and second Romanian kings and their wives are buried. The church is surrounded by beautiful gardens; there are many young people attending the church, those who are proud of their traditions. After visiting the church, we went to the local mountains where we climbed up on about 1,475 stairs. The mountains were beautiful and covered by forests. There were many rock formations and the lake called Vidraru (former communist symbol). We started the next day at the research institute for growing fruits.  This is the huge area with orchards, research laboratories and the main building where we were listening to presentation about the centre and about fruit growing in Romania. The Research Institute has several other branches in the country, reflecting the widely diverging climate in these areas. We went to the orchards which are partly protected by nets against birds. There are traditional varieties and also the varieties cultivated by them. The trees are then sold to local fruit farmers. The institute conducts research aimed to response of certain varieties to the environment, climate and soil.  The instrument for measuring growth of plums was very interesting. It sends the measured values to the central computer. We learned that nowadays the demand of red fruits is rapidly increasing, because it contains antioxidants and therefore it is sought after by the people. Then we visited the virology and micro-biological departments where diseases of fruit trees have been examined. There are new plants grown in tubes, these shall grow a little bit in rooms and greenhouses before they are planted into soil. In the orchards, in addition to the typical types of fruits (apples, pears, plums, cherries), there are also sea buckthorns, amelanchier alnifolia, damascena roses and various types of berries, such as blueberries, currants, etc. Then we left the Research Institute and went to the cannery where fruit, vegetables and meats are processed. Due to hygienic reasons, we were allowed to enter only in protective clothes and with hair net. Then we went to the monastery inhabited by 11 nuns. The monastery also includes the farm with orchard, greenhouses, pigs, chicken and cows. The nuns take care of this almost without any help. On Tuesday, which was the day of our departure, we visited another orchard where we learned something about fruit trade. We also visited the warehouse for fruits and then we went back home. It was a very informative, interesting and enjoyable week.
