in the Bergamo region, a particularly apt area for vegetable growing,
from both an Italian and European viewpoint.
The agricultural eco-system of an area is a unique mix: a complex,
amalgamated system of soil, micro-climate and the proper-ties of
its water. It is the result of over 3 billion years of evolu-tion,

weeds and bacteria), with farming procedures aimed at limiting and
infestations. This means that chemicals are only used when absolutely
A typical farming procedure is to plant the vegetables a little
more spaced: there is a smaller yield per unit of surface area,
but the yield is healthier.
The use of chemicals is not preventive, which means that spraying
is only carried out when necessary, and the crops are skilfully,
If chemicals are used, they are products with a limited
effect on both man and the environment, and highly selective towards
useful species: they leave an antagonist insect to flourish, as
it will limit the population of a harmful insect.
