ITALY – ORGANIC CROPS

TITLEORGANIC CROPS
TARGETSThe largest community in our area is the Albanian one devoted mainly to agriculture. It was considered important to activate an organic farming course and to create a laboratory-vegetable garden with the organic cultivation of the most common vegetables in our area. The participating group consisted of 10 Albanians. The regions where the largest number of organic operators are present are: Puglia, Calabria and Sicily. 45% of the total Italian operators are concentrated in these regions. In Puglia, there are 255,853 hectares of organic farming and organic operators are more than 10,000 with a growing trend that makes our region one of the most dedicated to organic farming. This type of agriculture exploits the natural fertility of the soil, favoring it with limited interventions. It excludes the use of synthetic products and genetically modified organisms.The planned objectives were achieved in part due to Covid-19 which resulted in the closure of all schools. The activities took place face to face and online (with some difficulty). In any case, this new way of online communication has induced those who attended the courses to update themselves on the new means of communication.
DESCRIPTIONSThe following plants were chosen for the cultivation of organic products: tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, celery, mint, parsley, green beans, watermelons. The seeds and seedlings were planted in pots, following the rules governing organic farming. This took place in December. Each participant was given a “Manual for organic cultivation”. In March, following the coronavirus, on-site activities were suspended and took place online. It was an opportunity to inform those who participated in the laboratory of the health and economic importance of organic farming. At the beginning of March, due to Covid, all the maps were distributed to the participants in the project, the course then continued online and with verification via social channels.
RESULTSThe course was attended with great participation also because the future of agriculture is that of organic products. A rapidly expanding sector also characterized by the tendential increase in consumption, processing companies and services related to the organic farming chain, such as farmhouses, organic canteens, organic restaurants. It will continue into the new academic year.
