Moscow is the major flower market from Russia. Roses are beautiful but expensive flowers, and producing high quality roses is a challenge. We made an improvement program for a grower in the Moscow oblast, who did large investments in glass houses, but was not able to produce the desired quality of roses. We first made a productivity scan and then identified projects for improvement. These projects focused on reproduction and climate control.
Manure from dairy cows can be used for energy only if the manure is of good quality. This means the cows should be in good health, and use of antibiotics is limited to a minimum. In this project we optimized the health and milk production of a dairy herd, with special attention to roughage and feed production, to get not only a good milk production per cow, but also a good manure quality.
