More than two thousand hectares of agricultural land is covered by a closed irrigation system in the Valandov region. The “Southern Vardar Valley” hydrosystem begins to function. Farmers see in it a salvation from long-term droughts.
The system will enable timely and rational irrigation, but also greater yields in agriculture.
The hydro system costs 24 million euros. It is financed through the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, with money from the Macedonian government, and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany.
