From now on, our project has an official YouTube channel where you can consult all the audiovisual content we are creating.
The first videos published correspond to the WildMAPsFiT training that took place last year, where some of our partners and special guests explained the context of our work and the market and key issues of the Medicinal Aromatic Plants.
The introduction, made by our project coordinator Dimitris Fotakis, is a brief explanation about our objectives and expected outcomes, as well as a presentation of each of the project partners.
Next, the lectures of Dr. Prof. Kemal Çelik and Dr. Prof. Harun Baytekin are the introduction to the world of Medicinal Aromatic Plants and the training itself: Pilot Training of Herbal Hunters. An historic view about the origin of cultivation and use of MAPs is given in the video Utilization & Mother Plant Nursery.
Dr. Dimitrios Argyropoulos, from the University of Dublin, explains how to maintain quality and microbial safety of dried herbs, as drying is the easiest and most durable way to export MAPs today.
Finally, Dr. Stefanos Andreadis, researcher of Agricultural Entomology and a guest from the Institute of Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources (Hellenic Agricultural Organization “DIMITRA”), talked about insect pests of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants and their management.
