Kiwiny on the front page/ Il Kiwiny in prima pagina

One of the 20 Pilot Actions implemented with the App4inno project was the development of a new drink from biological agriculture carried out by the Breitenberger farm under the Kiwiny brand. Well, this Action seems to be successful, since the Breitenberger brothers gained the front page of the newspaper “La Tribuna di Treviso”. The article tells us about the export of organic kiwi fruit and smoothies to Australia, a new frontier conquered by the farm based in Giavera del Montello, province of Treviso.

Una delle 20 Azioni Pilota realizzate con il progetto App4inno riguardava lo sviluppo di una nuova bibita da agricoltura biologica da parte dell’Azienda Breitenberger con il marchio Kiwiny. Sembra che questa Azione abbia avuto successo, dato che i fratelli Breitenberger appaiono in prima pagina del quotidiano “La Tribuna di Treviso. L’articolo all’interno parla in particolare dell’esportazione di kiwi e di succhi biologici in Australia, una nuova frontiera conquistata dall’azienda di Giavera del Montello (TV).

The AGRICARE project/l progetto europeo AGRICARE

AGRICARE - Introducing innovative precision farming techniques in AGRIculture to decrease CARbon Emissions is a three years project financed with the LIFE+ European Programme and joint by Veneto Agricoltura (leader partner), ENEA (National Agency for New Technologies), University of Padua e Maschio Gaspardo Group. This project aims to evaluate the impacts of new techniques such as precision farming, minimum tillage and no tillage on soil erosion, energy saving and greenhouse gases reduction. Experimental trials will be held in ValleVecchia farm near Caorle (VE) and the project results will be assessed for innovation transfer to other Italian and European crop systems.

AGRICARE - Introducing innovative precision farming techniques in AGRIculture to decrease CARbon Emissions. Questo è il nome del progetto che accomuna Veneto Agricoltura, ENEA, Università di Padova e  la Maschio Gaspardo SpA, volto a stimare gli effetti delle tecniche innovative in grado di unire i benefici dell'agricoltura di precisione a quelli del minimum tillage e del no tillage. Difesa del terreno, risparmio energetico e riduzione dei gas serra sono i temi principali valutati nel progetto. I risultati della sperimentazione effettuata a ValleVecchia presso Carole (VE) saranno successivamente valutati per una possibile trasferibilità e replicabilità su altri sistemi agricoli italiani ed europei.
