Taking into consideration the idea that tremendous work, devotion and of course an innovative approach is necessary to achieve success in agriculture, ACBA FEDERATION started a cooperation project with “Armberry'' CJSC in August 2017. The goal of the project was to organize visits for customers of agricultural banks and introduce them to innovative approaches on the spot. As a result, in 2017 ACBA Federation had the opportunity to arrange 13 visits for members of the Villagers' Union with participation of about 170 farmers. Such visits will continue in 2018 as well.
In experimental households new approaches of intensive agriculture are applied such as drip irrigation system, a reservoir for collecting rainwater, water meters, etc. New approaches of growing crops are applied, the land is in the process of organic certification and the crops are grown entirely in accordance with European standards.
With the financial support of ACBA Federation the following changes have been made in experimental households:
- anti-hail networks with a new, innovative approach have been obtained and installed,
- in the framework of cooperation, for the first time in Armenia, KIRPY universal tractor has been tested in the gardens of ''Armberry''. The technical capacity of KIRPY universal tractor enables to loosen soil and grind stones.
- after loosening the soil, the land of 1 hectare in Sagakhot was sown.
