The Divjaka irrigation scheme is part of the Lowland Zone in Lushnje District. The district of Lushnje is the most important agriculture area of the country. It is part of Fier region. Lushnjë district is known as the main supplier of food for the Albanian population. The whole Lushnje is cropped along intensive practices and hosts the largest amount of greenhouses.
