The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany to Moldova funded the acquisition of an irrigation system for the Botanical Garden in Chisinau. According to the statement of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova (ASM), the financial aid is meant to diminish this summer’s drought consequences. The irrigation system is absolutely necessary for maintaining the collections and plant exhibitions: the Rosarium, the Directed Growing Garden, the Lianarium, the collections of various medical, aromatic, decorative, fodder plants etc. Recently, an irrigation system was installed along the central alley and in the collection of Rosaceae plants, on a total area of 4 hectares. For the future, such installations are also planned for the area with seeds and other important plants. The Botanical Garden in Chisinau was founded in 1950 on a total area of 64 hectares on the side of the river Durlesti. Since 1964, the Botanical Garden is set on the current territory of 104 hectares. The Garden includes as well 24 types of soil and underground waters. The Botanical Garden has 12 sectors, including an Alpinarium, a Dendrarium, the Moldova Flora, Tropical Subtropical Plants, an Ornamental Sector and a Fructuarium.
