The project idea, presented in partnership with Minifarm “Fllanza”, International Business College of Mitrovica, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Initiative for Agricultural Development of Kosovo, was selected as one of the three best proposals, and the Minifarm “Fllanza” was awarded with the Triple Helix third prize.

IBCM EAM professors are providing professional support to Minifarm “Fllanza” on the production of organic fertilizers from quail droppings. The product is considered very effective for soil and vegetables because of the high nutritional value of quail waste. The product is considered to be unique and innovative and will contribute to the development of sustainable agriculture in the region.
