PRATI-CO is an EIP-AGRI Operational Group project dedicated to the study of good agricultural practices recommended for the preservation and maintenance of organic matter in the area which is famous for the production of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
