Bratunac: Agrotechnics for production of berry fruit and the safety of finished products with an emphasis on dirty hands disease - norovirus

Event location:

Bratunac

The BiH Plant Health Protection Administration and the USAID/Sweden FARMA II project are pleased to invite you to the workshop "Agrotechnics for production of berry fruit and the safety of finished products with an emphasis on dirty hands disease - norovirus".

BiH is an important producer of berry fruit in the region, and especially raspberry, which is exported to a large extent in frozen state. During the cultivation of raspberries and other berry fruits, producers face numerous agrotechnical challenges, but also with the hygienic requirements that are placed before them. One of the problems is contamination with the norovirus due to lack of hygiene measures in the production and manipulation of products. In order to increase the level of security, the European Union has recently put a lot of emphasis on control of finished products that may be infected with the norovirus.

Therefore, in cooperation with the FARMA II project, the Management Board decided to organize a workshop on the topic "Agrotechnics for production of berry fruit and the safety of finished products with an emphasis on dirty hands disease - norovirus" in which we would work:

  • Norovirus: infection and symptoms;
  • Pathways of contamination with norovirus and its control;
  • Data on export of berry fruit to the foreign market;
  • Presentation of activities and available support in the USAID/Sweden FARMA II


Participation at this workshop is free for registered legal entities from the agriculture sector. If you find this an interesting proposed topic, please register until February 19, 2019 via email info@farmabih.ba. In the application, indicate the name of your organization, the type of production your organization is dealing with, and the name of the person who will participate. We are at your disposal for all your questions.
