Rice production, Italian heritage

La production di rice Italian finds its maturity in the first thirty years of the '900, with the families of laborers and mondine, in a distant page of history only in appearance. In the northern regions, cultivating diversified types of rice, each mondina proceeded to eradicate harmful herbs and parasites from the plants by singing "Bella Ciao“, The song that would later become, with a different text, the flag of the Italian Resistance.

Those were the times when 500 people were employed for about ten hectares and the rice production was processed in "amphitheaters“, A method now abandoned in Europe (but not in China). Technology has arrived where the hands used to work: new machinery, ideas, genetic studies and crosses on specific types of rice and modern production techniques have supplanted the past. Part of the credit must be attributed to Antonio Tinarelli (1922 - 2014), able between the 60s and 70s to create original species, diversifying production.

Today's rice production in the Belpaese has maintained very high quality, guaranteeing the minimum recorded use (or absence) of pesticide residues on all European soil, demonstrating how massive production can equally meet organic and sustainable agriculture.
