Agrophenological Bullettin

Starting from 2003 an agrofenological station operates at the Azienda Agraria "Cadriano". It is designed to monitor the phenology of species of agronomic interest.

The layout of the station followed the directions provided by the Mipaf Project "PHENAGRI: Phenology of Agricultural species".

Species and varieties were chosen among the most representative of those grown in the area. The phenological observations are carried out according to the Phenagri operating protocol, using the phenological scale BBCH (Biologische Bundesanstalt, Bundessortenamt and Chemical Industry). For each phenological stage, thermal sums calculated and a photographic database is updated.

The observed data are recorded in a database and disseminated through the weekly bulletin of phenological observations that you can find in this page. Moreover, they are published in the agro-meteorological Emilia-Romagna Regional Bulletin
