Plants alone provide 80% of the food consumed and produce almost all the oxygen emitted into the atmosphere. To raise world awareness in the fight against malnutrition and poverty and to promote sustainable and environmentally friendly economic development, FAO has announced that 2020 will be the International Year for Plant Health.
Those like us who have been cultivating trees and shrubs for over a hundred years are well aware of the responsibility we humans have in protecting plants.
Today, climate change and human activities have greatly reduced species biodiversity and the commercialization of the product has led to the spread of an increasing number of pathogens that threaten plant health.
We as producers are committed to adopting good practices and sustainable production techniques on a daily basis, but sometimes this is not enough and, in view of the responsibility we have towards plants and ourselves, it is our duty to do everything that science can do to contain the effects of the pathogen and prevent its spread.
Our actions will always support the reasons for integrated agriculture and concrete sustainability, never ideological; we will continue to grow plants using techniques that are as sustainable as possible, but we will be ready to intervene so as not to fail in one of our duties: to protect the health of plants and those who, thanks to them, can continue to live.
Plants produce oxygen for us, they absorb carbon dioxide and fine dust, reduce global warming, increase our well-being and the economic value of our homes, all without asking for anything.
Our mission will always be to cultivate trees, which are the basis of the life of the planet and of mankind. We will do it with all the love we can, we will cure them when they are sick, as we do with our children, and we will plant them in every corner we are given.
If the Climate Conferences have not achieved results it is up to us alone, the change starts from daily actions.
Let’s not give up science. We don’t give up life.
