Citizens from all over the world, but especially Italians, no longer have a direct link with the practices of the camps, as still happened in the immediate post-war period, but have an increased sensitivity to everything that represents their diet It is therefore urgent to communicate how agriculture takes on this concern and how it responds with the technical-scientific solutions at its disposal. Herbaceous and tree crops; Forestry. In addition specific considerations will concern: a) the agricultural soil (with particular reference to its deterioration); b) the new economic-agricultural policy; c) the role of genetic improvement of plants. ”
