At Nis City Hall the reception was organized for farmers who received incentive funds from the city budget this year. 155 farmers received a total of 25 million dinars for the improvement of agricultural production. A quarter of the budget went to beekeepers. Thus this year’s competition under the program for allocation of incentive funds of the Agriculture and Rural Development Administration of the City of Nis was successfully completed. Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic personally handed over contracts to farmers. In the previous year, the City of Nis, through the Administration for Agriculture and Rural Development and within the framework of the implementation of the Fruit Development Program, placed the biggest emphasis on this branch of agriculture – fruit growing, while this year the Administration paid special attention to the development of beekeeping.
