Francesco da Schio and his son Berardo da Schio look at a production of crops on a living soil, that reduces the superficial erosion of arable crops and increases water capacity in the field: the absence of mechanical machining and the agroforestry promotes and protects edaphic biodiversity which is the only source of humus and construction of a stable soil structure. Only this practice, called "no-till farming", reduce the energy consumption!

Offers from farm Francesco da Schio
Earthworms are the best allied to the farmer
Living soil and no till farming reduce energy consumption, coverage and ordinary crops with agroforestry capture carbon
Earthworms mineralize the organic substance of plant residues in favor of new plants, leaving vertical and horizontal holes that fill the soil with roots, air and water. Only the non-working of the soil allows its life.The agroforestry and the continuous covering of the ground, favor the life of the earthworms and enhance for 12 months a year the free work of the photosynthesis chloroffiliana to combine the carbon dioxide of the atmosphere and the water of the soil to make sugars for the benefit of the whole humanity. The DA SCHIO farm is a leader in these difficult agronomic techniques that serve the farmer and the community
