A group of farmers from the Lankaran-Astara economic region of Azerbaijan recently undertook an EU-supported study tour to Europe.
During the week-long trip, the participants visited fruit and vegetable farms located in the Catania region of Italy. There they learnt about best practices in fruit growing, post-harvest activities, irrigation, packaging and product marketing.
