  • Effetti della riforma PAC 2014-2020 sulle aziende risicole italiane

    • Authors: Roberto Pretolani, Valentina Cairo
      Abstract: The paper investigates the medium-term imPACts of the 2014-2020 CAP reform in the Italian rice sector, analyzing farm’s structural characteristics and profitability. Using FADN data, first pillar payments and their contribution to income were computed and compared before reform (2012) and in 2019 (at the end of the internal convergence). The data calculated for the 165 farms in the FADN sample were reported to the universe, and show that the support for rice will fall from 979 to 746 €/hectare and 230 million to 176 million overall, with a 24% loss. However, rice farms will keep a higher support, compared to other arable crops farms. The effect of greening obligations on rice farms was also estimated, even if they are largely exempted by the diversification requirements and ecological focus areas.

  • Determinant factors of dairy production in the productive agglomerate of
           Alto Paraguay

    • Authors: Dilamar Dallemole, Arturo Alejandro Zavala Zavala, José Ramos Pires Manso
      Abstract: The milk production in Mato Grosso State (Brazil) presents growth in most regions, and the Productive Agglomerate of the Alto Paraguay is the only space that obtained differentiated institutional support during the last decade, becoming a source for reflection on the current socio-economic condition of the milk producers. With an on-site research base and Multivariate Analysis basements, this study aims to define an underlying framework of the determinant factors for the activity’s development in the region. Results show a family activity in the limited stage, mostly in view of managerial problems. The productivity is low because the operational factors and the prices charged do not allow suitable investments to overcome these limitations.

  • La blue economy in Basilicata. Risorse locali per lo sviluppo regionale

    • Authors: Maria Assunta D’Oronzio, Francesco Licciardo
      Abstract: Fisheries of coastal and inland aquaculture areas are preparing for a second phase of local development using the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) for the 2014-2020 period. Local communities will have new opportunities to address territorial challenges, combining European structural and investment funds (ESIFs) to deal with issues such as added value for local seafood products and aquaculture, for the improvement of the integrated management of coastal areas, support for fishing communities, and fish farmers and manufacturers to become both local drives and beneficiaries of the blue economy. The paper discusses distinctive elements of fisheries, aquaculture regional policy and Lucan processes along the coastal territory.

  • Saline soils in in Italy: distribution, ecological processes and
           socioeconomic issues

    • Authors: Loredana Canfora, Luca Salvati, Anna Benedetti, Carmelo Dazzi, Giuseppe Lo Papa
      Abstract: Soils are crucial for crop production and for the major ecosystem services. They preserve and sustain life. Salinity is one of the main soil threats that reduce soil fertility and affect the crop production. In recent times, a great attention has been paid to the general shortage of arable land, and to the increasing demand for ecological restoration of areas affected by secondary salinization processes. Microorganisms in these habitats may share a strategy, may have developed multiple adaptations for maintaining populations, and cope eventually to extreme conditions by altruistic or cooperative behavior for maintaining their population active. The understanding and the knowledge of the composition and distribution of microorganisms in natural habitats can be interesting for ecological reasons and it is important to develop new restoration strategy of salt-affected soils.

  • Drivers of on-farm diversification in the Italian peri-urban agriculture

    • Authors: Roberto Henke, Francesco Vanni
      Abstract: During the last decade peri-urban agriculture has been deeply investigated not only from an economic perspective, but also for its important impact on land use as well as on environmental and social dynamics. Building on the recent literature, the paper looks at the multifunctional role of peri-urban agriculture in Italy through a comparative analysis of a number of farms located within the main Italian urban poles. The analysis sheds light on both the internal and external drivers of farmers’ decision-making process about income diversification towards multifunctional activities. The article shows that, in the post productivist paradigm of multifunctional agriculture, peri-urban farms can play a pivotal role in a sustainable land use and enhancing the entrepreneurs’ behaviour in providing a broad variety of social and economic services to the urban population.
