CertificationsThe seeds of straw cereals marketed by Agroservice are produced on 8,500 hectares of land of which 80% in the Marche, a region well suited for the production of seed. The farms concerned strictly follow the following guidelines covered in the cultivation contract:
Grow only one variety per species.
Observe the minimum clearances established ENSE, as compared to other varieties.
Use the seed provided by Agroservice, tanned according to the species with C3, C4, or C5.
Follow the cultivation with adequate agronomic techniques with the goal of producing seed healthy, vigorous, suitable for reproduction. Then carry out the rotations, working, interventions weed control, fungicides and fertilizer according to the directions of our technicians.
Perform the collection with a aumidità below 13% and to ensure maximum cleaning of the machines for the collection and the means of transport in order to avoid any risk of pollution.
In addition, crops are being visited in the field by technicians Ense and Agroservice to evaluate its suitability to the destination as seeds.
The objective of this procedure is to have a seed with high germination, a great force and a high purity and varietal; in other words, Agroservice asks "seed quality".
Initiatives Agroservice for the Production of "Seed Quality"
In order to continually improve the quality standard of the seed to be marketed to Merchants, Agricultural Associations and Cooperatives, Agroservice undertook a number of initiatives in relation to Agricultural Producers and Subcontractors that reproduce the seed; initiatives are aimed at the durum wheat because this species has represented and still represents 55-60% of the seed activity Agroservice.
This project, called "Seed Quality", involves the identification of the three best Agricultural Producers and their Threshers based on the analysis of seed delivered.
1998 In the early years the initiative "Seed Quality" is spelled with an incentive to those companies that reproduce the seed of contract on our behalf, use, and good use of fungicides. This is because we had realized that the practice of agronomic pest of wheat seed was not perceived by the farms in its overall importance and was often neglected or considered only as an accessory intervention.
With our initiative, we were able to increase the surface area of durum wheat seed from fungal diseases considerably: there are currently ranges from 70 to 85% of treated crops twice, at the end of winter and the earing (oscillation which depends on the different agro-meteorological trends over the years, you must also consider that different zones dell'areale Marche, the main basin of playing Agroservice, are naturally unfavorable to attack by fungal pathogens).
2001 The "Seed Quality" has changed its character and became a public recognition, during the technical meetings held every February Agroservice for "his" seed breeding, with delivery of related "Door-Prize" the Agricultural Producers and the Threshers over the years produced the best matches of durum wheat for seed.
The award is given to both the Agricultural Producers that the Threshers because only with the good work of both figures are achieved excellent results: the manufacturer must comply with the "insulation" space from other crops, must perform different farming techniques in a proper and professional needs to produce healthy seed, while the thresher must avoid "polluting" the seed with other species, should avoid splitting the seed, must minimize impurities, must collect at the right humidity.
2006 The "Seed Quality" includes, in addition to the "Targa-Prize", a travel award from year to year permits, the Agricultural Producers and the Threshers who work with Agroservice, visit and "hands-on" reality farming of other countries and broaden their cultural horizons and thus of knowledge.
