agricultureRomania currently owns one of the widest farmland and high nature value areas in Europe, according to WWF-Romania, ADEPT Transilvania Foundation and ProPark Foundation.

The country’s high nature value farmland (HNVF) represents over 30% of the total farmland in Romania, says Romania-Insider.com.

The HNVF is located is Transylvania, Maramures, the Carpathian hills, and south-western Romania, where traditional agriculture represents the main economic activity and is a key factor in preserving nature.
