Short Description

Agricultural Services Centre / Elbasan – Registered in compliance with the Court Decision Nr. 125, on 28/10/2003, Sh.B.E. constitutes a services centre operating in the agricultural and farming field. It was established by a group of experts in agronomy and veterinary who have worked for a long time on the implementation of the projects of the Italian association CEFA (European Committee for Training and Agriculture), which on the other hand has been operating in Albania since 1993 and still implements projects in the agricultural and social field thanks to the financing of the Italian Foreign Affairs Ministry.
The non-profiting Centre Sh.B.E. operates mainly within the Elbasan District, situated right in the centre of Albania,.
The Centre Mission implies knowledge improvement as regards to the principles and techniques of the conventional and biological agriculture, facilitating knowledge spreading among the area farmers. With a view to this objective, the centre organizes trainings, workshops and practical demonstrations addressed to the local farmers and the technical staff operating in this field.
Besides the above-mentioned activities, Sh.B.E. provides counseling and technical assistance in agriculture, such as: planting young olive plants, anti-parasite treatments, new techniques on fruit-trees and vineyard planting, diffusing less known plants like actinidia, strawberry etc.
As far as zoo-veterinary field is concerned, SH.B.E. through its experts offers technical assistance for the area farmers, mainly in: animal feeding, stall hygiene, animal health, artificial insemination importance, whereas for the private veterinaries and technical staff dealing with the copulation, it bids trainings related to the treatment of the: metabolic, parasite, bacterial and virus diseases, as well as reproduction diseases which are often present in the practical activity of the veterinaries.
Within the framework of the veterinary component for the abolishment of the zoonosis diseases (tuberculosis, brucellosis and anthrax), one of the most successful project achieved in this field has been implemented by the experts of SH.B.E. This project implies matriculation, vaccination and the check-up of 9.000 bovine heads; vaccination and the check up of 50.000 cattle for three continuous years, concluded with the elimination of about ten bovine heads and cattle resulted positive after the carried out check-up.
In the agricultural field, the support and technical assistance of the olive farmers certainly constitute the centre specialization. Sh.B.E. agronomists have had the opportunity to get specific trainings on this issue within the project “Programme for Agro-Industrial Transformation in the Elbasan District”. This project has been proposed by CEFA and it is financed by the Italian Foreign Affairs Ministry. Its aim was to promote and support the olive growing development in the area, through the creation and the support toward the three olive farmers’ associations; each with its own olive producing factory. Thus, the centre agronomists have had the opportunity to avail of a number of trainings, in Italy and Albania as well, leading them to the assimilation of considerable information in this field.
This first project in the agricultural field, aiming at the creation of the three olive farmers’ associations in Belesh, Gostime and Shirgjan which count over 350 members and cover a pretty wide area in the south of Elbasan, whose population has been traditionally dealing with fruit plants, especially olive, actually is being supported by another project whose fundamental goal is to create a cooperative of these associations. SHBE is part of these cooperative and it deals with the running, technical assistance and cooperative members training.
