• IFRD will provide them inputs in shape of plants and fertilizers etc.
• Monitoring and supervision of their crops and solutions for unforeseeable problems will be provided by IRDF.
• During the start period of non-fruiting, IFRD provide them livestock and inputs for vegetable and short period crops cultivation which is possible in the orchards of Olives and Grapes.
