The primary goal of the Terra Kytheria programme is to empower the olive oil producers of Kythera in multiple ways.
In this context, the University of the Aegean, developed two ‘tools’, with which producers will be able to control, adapt and manage their crop quickly and easily. At the same time, these tools, consisting of an application (app) for smart phones and an internet geobase, will facilitate and simplify a great deal the certification process.
