The agriculture in Naoussa
The wider region of Naoussa's Municipality constitutes one of the most important cores of rural production in our country, with given the configuration of its territory, the long-lasting experience and specialized knowledge of the residents and the ideal climatic conditions for the growth of one line of dynamic cultivations, as the fruits, the vines and the vegetables.
In this frames therefore the region is characterized by relatively high growth of the agricultural sector, which constitutes to a large extent the main source of income for important part of population.
The bosky cultivations with greater the growth of table peaches and apples dominate, the adding contribution of which in the total production of agricultural products is very big. The contribution of the production of cherry trees, however, is also very important, particularly those which come from the mountainous communities. The high altitude and the particular climatic conditions offer the exceptional appearance and flavour to those cherries and as a result they take up a powerful place in the domestic and international markets. For this reason the Crisp Cherries of Rodochori, as Product of Name of Origin, create a competitive advantage for the products of region whereas the fact that most of the cooperatives (A.S. of Naoussa, ASEPOP, A.S. of Rodochori) are certified with the testimonial AGROCERT of OPEGEP for various products (apple, cherry, peach) create bigger advantages. Finally, it should be marked that the wider region of Naoussa includes almost in its entirety the area of production of Wine of Name of Origin of Maximum Quality, the popular "xinomauro" wine of Naoussa.
