RISO D'ACQUA BIOLOGICO

Elena Bianchi e Gianluigi Canesi are farming entrepreneurs and qualified agricultural experts. They have been running “Cascina Bellerio” since 1991. It is located in the lowlands outside Pavia next to the Francigena Way in an area rich with woodlands that stretch as far as the river Po. The setting covers an arable territory of about 80 hectares, surrounded by dog rose, blackthorn, hawthorn and wild cherry bushes. It also boasts a fully functioning irrigation system. This flourishing farm combines rice-growing traditions with the latest innovative skills and technology that have been continuously improved over the years. 

From its Asian origins, rice has made its mark in the culture of our family. A passion for rice production has been passed down from generation to generation

Research and Collaoration with University

The Podere Giambattista Agricultural Firm was part of a research group, comprised of farmers and researchers, coordinated by Prof. Bocchi and Ms. Orlando B.S. from the Department of Environmental Science and Politics at the University of Milan – Università degli Studi di Milano. The collaboration with the University and with other rice-producing companies had four specific aims: gain knowledge of organic rice cultivation; share experiences as farmers; evaluate possible agricultural practices; determine how to choose which the most suitable practices are for different places where it is produced. 

After a three year monitoring period, the researchers concluded that the production of organic rice is subject to a wide variety of factors, a technique that is efficient for one company may not be so for another. The farmer’s individual skill and ability play a vital role as with both passion and determination, each farmer has to experiment with various techniques, at their own expense, to find which are suitable for their own area of cultivation. The results have been published by a prestigious scientific magazine (see image) in which the contribution of authors Elena Bianchi e Gianluigi Canesi has been cited.
