Terre Grecaniche manages owned land falling within the territory of the Municipality of Palizzi (RC). The total area is 28.80.50 hectares.
Terre Grecaniche is an organic farm, controlled and certified by CSQA. Organic agriculture is a natural choice for our Cooperative and is based on the adoption of production methods that respect human and animal well-being and the protection of the local environmental biodiversity.
The agronomic management of the soil is aimed at reducing the tillage that destroys the soil structure and weakens the absorption power of the roots. Surface work is carried out to eliminate the turf and to maintain the availability of organic substances through spontaneous grassing, the treatment of pruning residues, and the use of the green manure technique.
As per the parasite control, typical of the vine (downy mildew, powdery mildew, moth) and of the olive tree (fly), integrated pest management techniques are adopted. The latter only involves the use of products of natural origin such as copper and sulphur salts.
Cooperativa Agricola Terre Grecaniche avails itself, for the agricultural activities, of the technical consultancy of the Agronomist Arcangelo Giampà.
