1 Four geographical areas were defined according to longitude and altitude of the sampling places. The Black Sea area (S) includes farms located on the coast between longitudes 41°00 E and 42°00 E. The West Georgia area (W) includes farms between longitudes 42°00 E and 43°00 E. The Tbilisi area (T) includes farms between 44°00 E and 45°00 E. The mountain area (M) includes farms in a wide range of longitudes (from 43°00 E to 45°14 E), which having in common an altitude higher than 800 m.
