The very high quality of a product that gets one extraordinary quality, thanks to the place where it is grown, but also the criticalities to its cultivation, such as the presence of otters, the straw that is produced is the cost of water to be able to reach the final product. This is what emerged in the interesting meeting on Po Delta rice supply chain, with Protected Geographical Indication, promoted by the same Consortium, in Codigoro. Proposed by the president of the consortium Adriano Zanella, by that of the Province Gianni Padovani, by the manager of the Region Carla Negretti, by the commander of the Provincial Police of Ferrara, Laura trentini, Diego Cattaneo of Green Energy Brescia and Alberto Battistelli of the National Research Council.
Being in land below sea level, just 30 kilometers from it receiving natural ventilation, produced by the breezes, has produced the very high rice, so much so that there is a very strong demand both on the domestic market and on the foreign one, even going so far as to sell it in China. “From the 60 hectares of land e 3.000 quintals of rice in 2018 we reached 1.600, with 78000 quintals of rice - says Zanella - with a quality export of 30% of production and the rest on the national market, now we we would need to further increase production because the requests are constantly growing.
The critical issues are in the burning of the straw, because it can be done more, the otters that we know are devastating the territory and the cost of water". And he adds: "Through a system of cellular breakdown of the straw, diesel oil, methanol and carbonite are obtained, the latter used as an additive in fertilizers. Finally, we cannot have a cost of water that exceeds those of our competitors in Piedmont and Lombardy by 6070% ”.
The President of the Province has already convened a table with all the parties to tackle the nutrie problem next Monday while Trentini highlighted the important activity of the coadjutors expressing however as in the face of 1200 authorized only 200 operate while in the first quarter only in the first quarter, thanks to the positive projects put in place, about 20.000 have been culled (Il Resto del Carlino).
