As the project’s beneficiary and author, Avtandil Tsintsadze notes, planting vineyards became more relevant issue nowadays on account of existed facilitating conditions. The area of vineyards gradually enlarge, but simultaneously rural development needs its resources. This is the reason, why Avtandil Tsintsadze decided to provide rural society with reinforced concretes.
“Heretofore, they were planting vineyards via wooden poles. From now on, they will spend much fewer wood resources. Apart from this, reinforced concretes are more solid and firm, which means that the vineyard owner won’t need to care for new pillars and seek for different resources again.”, stated Avtandil Tsintsadze.
