To concern oneself with water and the problems associated with it (lack of humus, drought and dry-land agriculture) means becoming involved in the main problem of agriculture over the course of the upcoming years.
The World Environment Conference has estimated that 25-30% of the Italian land surface will be classified as desert by 2020. This figure is not only forecast for the south, which is the region most exposed to the forces of light and heat, but also the Po Valley. The main cause of desertification in the Po Valley has to be attributed to the gradual increase in the use of synthetic chemicals in conventional agriculture.
Given that for Nature 15-20 years is to a “wink of an eye”, it is very important to start working immediately on several fronts: the creation of an adequate agricultural organism, the formation of humus, and good sound water.
