CHAIN - Agriculture in cooperation with nature
Client - Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops (Croatian Agricultural Land Agency)
Countries - Republic of Serbia and Republic of Croatia
- The Danube region is a major international hydrological basin and ecological corridor.
- Development of intensive agricultural production occurred in the examined area.
- The examined area is extremely sensitive to intensive agricultural production as the diffuse pollution source.
- Given the existence of two opposite interests in one area, maintaining balance between the nature and human activity is essential.
- Cross-border cooperation contributes to development and environment protection.
- The aim of this project was to establish a system for continuous monitoring of the soil and groundwater quality.
- Eijkelkamp Soil & Water’s partner in the Republic of Serbia, Megra, supplied the Eijkelkamp Soil & Water equipment, training and assisted the CHAIN project team.
Results of the research
The CHAIN project members concluded: ‘With respect to the obtained results, soil quality monitoring is our obligation to the future generations, thus the continuation of soil monitoring is necessary in order to identify the patterns of soil quality changes and establish control over soil contamination.’
