ARABLE CROPS

spiga

More than 5000 ha of arable land are farmed in Italy, with almost the same amount in Romania on the farms of Pancota and Arad.

The most important crops include durum and soft wheat, maize, sugar beet, soya, sorghum and rice. Other “minor” crops are also grown, useful according to age-old farming practices to give nutrition back to the land which is sometimes also left fallow to re-establish the natural balance. Satisfying the natural inclination of the area concerned, a team of meticulous agronomists selects the most suitable crops for each piece of land and each season.

Experience and local culture are combined with technical and scientific competence, without ever allowing the latter to take over completely. Reinforced by peasant farming traditions going back thousands of years, we can thus exploit the potential of science to obtain excellent results with each crop. In our development project, we have enthusiastically embraced agriculture 2.0, an invaluable tool which maps the land using drones and highly specialised software, helping us identify criticalities and implement remedies calibrated inch by inch over even the largest areas cultivated. GPS guided tractors and farm machinery are interfaced with this sophisticated system to calibrate treatments and minimise both costs and environmental impact.
