Session

Agriculture, Food Science and Technology

Description

The Republic of Kosovo has declared its independence on February 17, 2008, with a total area of 10,877 km2 and a population of nearly 2 million. Approximately 68.3% of the economy of the Republic of Kosovo consists of services, 14.1% of agriculture, 9.6% of industry and 8% of construction sectors. Although the land is fertile, most farms are small and inactive. Agricultural production pattern and irrigation techniques are not suitable for technology. Most of the agricultural land is privately operated, with wheat, maize and grapes being important agricultural products. Management plans for many of the country’s natural resources are still under preparation. This also applies to environmental issues such as air quality, agricultural production, and freshwater resources, which have a direct impact on the solution of political, social and economic problems in Kosovo and the pace of development. Therefore, it is important to create a data bank by revealing the environmental problems in the country from the past to the present by the relevant official institutions and universities. At the same time, taking into account the factors of global warming and drought, which are one of the biggest problems of the century we live in, a good planning for the future, increasing scientific knowledge will ensure that the plans to be made will be more accurate and efficient, and will accelerate the development in the Republic of Kosovo with future-oriented economic and environmentally friendly practices.
