The contract, signed two months ago between the Municipality Kolasin and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, was implemented with the opening of the Agribusiness Center office.
There will be two young agronomists working at the office, who will give explanations, among other things, and advice to farmers, but also help with project writing and documentation completion.
Agronomists Zana Mirkovic and Bojan Despotovic have already begun touring villages and katuni.
"We are presenting to the farmers what they can get and what they should ask from the Agribusiness Center. Also, in the field, we try to spot problems of cattle breeding and crop production, give expert advice, and suggestions. So far, we have visited the part of Sinjavina, Katun Osljak, and Potrk. Katun Bojic. We visited numerous farms, as well as Katun Vranjak on Bjelasica," said the employees in the Agribusiness Center.
For the first seven days of the Agribusiness Center’s opening, the attendance was, they claim, more than satisfactory.
Counseling services in the field of cattle breeding and plant production are most often sought.
"The Agribusiness Center will fill in all the necessary documentation for farmers of various types of premiums and public calls published by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. It will be required to allow farmers to register at the Agribusiness Center in the future, because so far they were forced to do in neighboring municipalities," explained the Agribusiness Center.
