The pomegranate Value Chain is one of the highest agricultural priorities. The main goal of the research to determine the technical issue in modern table pomegranate production ( with a special focus on intensive production); management of the specific challenges that are seen in the field tours; business management: the use of crop budgets in making sound management decisions.
One of the outcomes of the research will be the production of Production Manual specific to Azerbaijan. Production of table varieties requires more effort throughout the entire process of this value chain, from variety selection, input selection, and use supply, cultivation practices, and post-harvest handling and shipping logistics. USAID Agriculture Support to Azerbaijan Project ( ASAP) and AgroCenter began work on gathering information for manual.
During the research project, AgroCenter will conduct several classroom presentations at Azerbaijan State Agrarian University and other Ministry facilities. A business specialist from AgroCenter will conduct meetings with owners and managers of medium and large pomegranate production enterprises focused on crop budgeting.
