From innovative experimentation to an essential element of the wine chain. Once again, this year organic farming will be the focus of Enovitis in campo, the travelling event organised by Unione Italiana Vini, which is now a reference point for products, technologies, machinery and services dedicated to vineyard management. This edition will be hosted for the first time by Friuli Venezia Giulia, at Ca’ Bolani Winery in Cervignano del Friuli (UD) on 23 and 24 June.
With regard to organic production and sustainability, Enovitis is teaming up for the second time with FederBio Servizi, a consulting company specialised in monitoring the different steps involved in the organic chain. The company will be setting up an organic demonstration vineyard at the estate to be used for practical tests and trials focused on the development, care and protection of sustainable viticulture, which today accounts for 17.5% (120,000 hectares) of Italian vineyards. Many events will be held over the two days of the event, starting from the three field visits during which the FederBio agronomists – together with the exhibitors – will be giving demonstrations related to the organic management of the vineyard, according to its characteristics and peculiarities.
A discussion on the potential of and issues concerning the organic supply chain will follow. The various exhibiting companies will be presenting a large number of ideas during the fair, which also show how important the organic sector has become in this field. The company Vitis Rauscedo will be presenting its production of organic rootstocks, while Mas Seeds Italy will be showing green manure species for the vineyard. B.F.M., LaCruz and Officine Mingozzi will be discussing the management of wild grass coverage and wild grasses under the foliage, while Bayer Cropscience, Certis Europe, Gowan Italia and Manica will be looking at the biological defence of vines. Finally, SATA Studio Agronomico will be taking part in an interactive workshop on the zoning of biodiversity and the functional quality of soils in order to improve the quality of the grapes and develop the most suitable strategy for communicating the green theme.
