The farm "Societá Agrícola Palazzetto" is located 18 km from the town of Cremona, in the Lombardy region. It has an extension of 345 ha, with plots of wheat, alfalfa and corn crops.

The soil has a sandy-loam texture with an average of 2.2% organic matter content and practically zero slopes.

In its plots, the soil is covered with plants thanks to the implementation of several crops per season. In addition, thanks to the conservation practice of strip till, only a narrow strip of soil is mechanically altered in the crop row.


Best Management Practices
