6th edition of “Agroecologia al Centro”

The open day of the Agri-Environmental Research Center “Enrico Avanzi” titled “Diversification of Crop Systems for Sustainability and Resilience” will take place on Tuesday, May 30. It will be possible to explore, along three tracks, the role of diversification at the genetic level, at the crop species level and at the landscape level.

The event is organized in collaboration with the research teams of the Department of Agricultural, Food and Agri-environmental Sciences of the University of Pisa and the Plant Science Research Center of the Sant’Anna School of Pisa on the occasion of the ASviS Festival of Sustainable Development.

Registration is required for participation. Register

Pathway 1. The role of diversification at the genetic level

Daniele Antichi, Elisa Lorenzetti, Maria Munoz, Lara Abou Chehade, Paolo Bàrberi, Luciana Angelini

CiRAA and Scuola Sant’Anna will present their genetic improvement and varietal comparison activities on the main cereal and legume crops of the Mediterranean area, including the selection of durum wheat varieties suitable for the organic method and the characterization of chickpea and lentil genetic resources.
Parcours 2. The role of diversification at the crop species level.

Camilla Moonen, Alessandro Triacca, Gabriele Nerucci, Gilbert Koskey, Daniele Antichi, Federico Leoni

The pathway will consist of three stages: the chickpea stage, the lentil stage and the clover stage.
Pathway 3. The role of diversification at the landscape level

Alberto Mantino, Stefano Carlesi, Lorenzo Tamacere, Massimo Sbrana, Giovanni Pecchioni, Daniele Antichi, Marcello Mele

Results from the ARNINO L.T.E. long-term trial, in which two crop rotations are compared in two systems: agroforestry and conventional, and from the AGROFORCES trial, in which the productivity of different herbaceous crops in intercropping with rows of managed very short-cycle poplar (Short rotation forestry) is evaluated.

The Agroforestry Show (UK)

Interest in agroforestry is on the rise across the UK farming and forestry sectors, yet for many there is still uncertainty as to how to put this concept into practice.

Amidst this uncertainty agroforestry presents a huge opportunity for innovation between those who produce food and those who work with trees. Now is the time to break down the historic division between these sectors to work together towards a common purpose of landscape regeneration and sustainable food, fuel and fibre production!

Much more than a trade show, this two-day gathering will inspire land stewards to collaborate and engage with agroforestry through:

  • Knowledge exchange workshops and inspiring talks
  • Farmer and forester-led discussions
  • Agroforestry field walks
  • Live equipment demonstrations
  • Exhibitions and market stalls

Join The Agroforestry Show to build and celebrate the UK’s agroforestry movement!

Study day dedicated to Agroforestry in Tuscany (Italy)
Field Visits

Agroforestry is the set of agricultural systems that envisage the cultivation of trees in association with arable land and/or pastures in the same surface unit. It was a widespread practice in the past that, in recent years, is spreading again due to its greater environmental, social and economic sustainability compared to traditional agriculture. Among the main benefits are increased productivity, diversification of production, increased biodiversity, reduced soil erosion, greenhouse gas sequestration, improved microclimate, enhanced landscape, and increased employment on a local scale. Recently, the NEWTON – NEtWork project for agroforestry in TOscaNa, financed by the PSR sub-measure 1.1 and 1.2 of the Region of Tuscany, has studied 2 particularly interesting silvopastoral systems, the Paganico Estate (GR): grazed cerreta (Turkey) and the Pietratonda Estate: grazed cork oak forest (GR).

The event will be entirely in Italian
