On December 3th, took place the meeting to present project final results with the Regional Administration and Bullas City Council, municipality where the project has been developed.
The meeting, which was held online, was attended by the General Directors of the Common Agricultural Policy, DG of Agriculture, DG of Environment and DG of Natural Environment of the Regional Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Environment of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia. The meeting was also attended by the Head of Services of Bullas City Council, as well as by the President of the PDO Bullas.
After the presentation of results by project partners, the current environmental problem caused by the burning of agricultural pruning waste in the municipalities of the Region of Murcia and the difficulty of farmers to abandon this practice were exposed. In this way, the project highlighted the need to incorporate support lines to facilitate pruning and composting of agricultural pruning waste to enforce current legislation, which prohibits burning unless there is a danger of pests.
Finally, a discussion was established which focused on the need to make the project’s actions as wide as possible at the regional level, as the Regional Ministry of Agriculture plays a key role in supporting the inclusion of composting practices as a new agri-environmental measure in the next Rural Development Programme.
