Cooperative toscane, preoccupazione per il futuro dell’agricoltura

I co-operators in Tuscany are worried about the potential abandonment of certain professions and the centralization of rural development in the region’s new programming. They are calling for support for agricultural associations and oppose any actions that harm agriculture. They believe that interventions should be based on knowledge of the territories, productions, and structures of agricultural companies. The cooperatives also emphasize the need for access to water, investment in precision agriculture and protection for crops and greenhouses, and oppose restrictive regulations that limit access to forests for work. They highlight the importance of sustainable environmental practices and immediate and effective support for agriculture, particularly pastoralism and animal husbandry. They also stress the need for water management and containment plans and funding for mitigating drought issues.
