CATCH POLLUTION

Optimal catch crop solutions to reduce pollution in the transboundary Venta and Lielupe river basins

Link to project profile
Description of result

Joint concept document combines all main findings and results of the project and provides action plans and recommendations for national stakeholders regarding efficient establishment and support of catch crops for reduction of agricultural pollution. Main users of the document are national institutions thus, it was translated to Lithuanian and Latvian.
The recommendations of the document clearly outline actions that have to be taken to ensure more efficient and targeted application of catch crops. These recommendations were recognized as important and useful by the national stakeholders (in particular Environmental Protection Agency of Lithuania, Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre, Ministries of Agriculture of the Republic of Lithuania and the Republic of Latvia), so proposals of the project as laid down in the concept document will be considered when planning agri-environmental measures of the national Rural Development Programmes. This should encourage a wider and more efficient application of catch crops and respond to the need of better targeting of water pollution reduction measures. Extended and more efficient application of catch crops will reduce nutrient surplus in soil and leaching to surface water bodies. This way catch cropping will add-up to achievement of the environmental goals in the transboundary Venta and Lielupe RBDs as defined by the Water Framework Directive which is the main peace of water legislation in the EU.

Description of result

Partners from research institutes and tourism associations visited and inspected potential HG places in order to understand if they are suitable for the Heritage Gardens product from tourism and horticultural point of view. All together 59 potential gardens in Latvia and 65 in Lithuania were inspected, from them project staff choose 26 HG objects in Latvia and 25 in Lithuania having plants and collections of old cultivars.
During the project around 10 000 fruit trees were examined by LP_1 scientists in homesteads, estates, botanical gardens and private collections. Around 4 000 trees were old cultivars. The most popular ones are apples ‘Paprastasis antaninis’, Rudens dryžuotasis’, ‘Sierinka’, ‘Popierinis’, pears – ‘Vandenė’, ‘Vasarinė sviestinė’, sour cherry – ‘Vietinė rūgščioji’. Some very rear cultivars as apple – ‘Tabokinė’, ‘Lietuvos cukrinis’ ‘Beržininkų ananasas’, ‘Panemunės baltasis’, ‘Raudonasis alyvinis’, ‘Žemaičių grietininis’, ‘Montvilinis’ ‘Kronselinis, plum -‘Vietinė geltonoji’ and ‘Čirkšlė’ were identified (only 1-3 trees in Lithuania). In the vegetable gardens of heritage sites old traditional plants are maintained: carrots, red beats, turnips, parsnips, hosradishes, beans, peas and etc. most popular herbs are mint, oregano, thyme, common rue and etc. At Obelynė homestead 25 old cultivars were identified.
During inspections of heritage sites in Latvia apple cultivars ‘Bely Naliv’ and ‘Astrahanskoe Krasnoe’, pear cultivar ‘Ankstyvoji Dulia’ were found at Berkenele tourist site. These cultivars previously were not found in any known site in Latvia. Using genetic markers, the sample collected at “Upmaļi” site was proved to be ‘Calville Blanc d’Hiver’; this is a finding of cultivar previously thought to be lost in Latvia. Apple cultivar ‘Chernoguz’ (syn. Līcīšu Ziemas’) grown in Latvia and Lithuania was proved to be practically identical with 18th century Swedish cultivar ’Grågylling’, in the range of clonal variation. This is a significant finding correcting the history of cultivar.
There were selected very broad spectrum of heritage objects: museums, botanical gardens, manor houses, homesteads, memorial homesteads museums, private collections, farmers. On the base of inspections, 7 itineraries of Heritage Gardens tour are created and promoted. Tours mainly are self-drive; some parts of tours are suitable also for cycling. 2 tours are local, 5 cross-border tours
Heritage Gardens tourism map was printed in LV, LT, EN, DE and RU languages.
