TO GO WITH STORY BY RUSMIR SMAJILHODZIC - A picture taken on September 13, 2013 shows the village of Popovo Polje, in the vicinity of South-Eastern Bosnian town of Trebinje near Croatia-Bosnia and within Hutovo Blato nature park. The Neretva river delta and the surrounding fields are a great agricultural area that participates in Croatia's economy, generates a substantial income for the farmers and brings certain food products to markets of the neighboring Bosnia. But the pristine landscape could soon be no more than a barren desert, environmental activists and farmers warn, with its water resources under threat from the construction of three hydro-plants in Bosnia and one in neighbouring Croatia.
