EC Environment - Life Programme

With the contribution of the LIFE + financial instrument of the European Union

Welcome to AgroStrat website!

Welcome to Agrostrat. AgroStrat is an ambitious project which foresees the development of an integrated scenario for the sustainable management of intensively cultivated Mediterranean areas. This scenario will be integrated to strategy through a series of actions and by using as an example Pistachia vera L. trees which are  intensively cultivated in Aegina Island, Greece for the last 150 years. Apart from the development of sustainable management and monitoring plan at local/regional scale suitable for intensively cultivated areas, the project focuses also on exploitation and valorization of pistachio wastes, which at present are disposed without control on soils causing several environmental problems.
