European rice production

Rice production in Europe rests on four fundamental principles, which ensure the safety of the product, the increase of yields and the resistance of the crop to extreme conditions, while reducing the ecological footprint of farming activities.

These principles relate to:

1) the application of sustainable practices for plant protection, in compliance with current European Legislation on the production of safe agricultural products.

2) the application of growing practices which comply with the strictest requirements posed by the European Protocols on the production of agricultural products, which respect the environment as well as producers;

3) the implementation of innovative digital tools (Digital Farming Solutions) and

4)  the proper selection of seeds exhibiting characteristics which boost rice yields.
