THE AGRICULTURAL SYSTEM IN THE NOVACI LOCALITY, GORJ COUNTY AREA PUBLISHEDFLORESCU T., OKROS A., NITA L.
At the foot of the Parâng mountains, at a 44 km distance from Târgu Jiu, there is the town of Novaci, watched over by the highest peak of the Parâng mountains, the Great Parâng (2519m). Its geographic position, and also its land fund structure, facilitates a combined agriculture, i.e. working the land and breeding animals. Also, the fact that it is crossed by the beautiful Transalpina highway creates development opportunities for agritourism. Animal breeding, especially sheep and cattle, was and still is the main activity of the inhabitants of this area. The pastures at the foot of the mountain, as well as the alpine ones, and those from the wood borders, are a great advantage, a fact that led to the orientation towards apiculture. Just like any other agriculture field, the lack of an open market for animal products leads to the discouragement of animal breeders, but their association may be a development and a tradition keeping privilege, namely the tradition of shepherding. One may easily notice that the agricultural system in the Novaci locality area is an exclusively zootechnical one.
