- Burini farm, Bibbiano (RE)

The group visited the permanent grasslands for Parmesan production and with the help of soil pits, detailed collected information on soil analysis ( chemical, physical and thanks to UNIPR microbiological) and the presence of the farmers, the group tested for the first time the soil navigator.
