Climate changes

ADAptation actions

Climate change is already underway and is set to continue, making it necessary to adopt measures for more resilient farming. Adaptation measures aim to effectively prevent and/or reduce climate risks. Mitigation measures aim to reduce and/or eliminate the causes of climate change. Many climate change adaptation measures involve mitigating actions and vice versa.

Mitigation and adaptation measures are complementary to each other and not alternative. In some cases they can overlap and have a synergistic action.

The economic benefits deriving from mitigation and adaptation measures far outweigh the respective costs and make it possible to considerably reduce the overall costs of repairing the damage caused by climate change.

Good practices that can be implemented to increase your resilience are illustrated below.

Heavy rainfall in the period between the change of colour and ripening can cause fruit to split (also called "cracking"), certainly the most serious threat to cherry trees.
Riguardo ai sistemi che prevedono la cessione diretta di calore all'ambiente esistono i cosiddetti bruciatori a combustione di GPL.
Anti-hail nets are currently the only method of active protection effective against hail.
This practice developed by the French initially against the damage caused by codling moths (C. Pomonella) has also proven effective against other insects.
Other defence systems involve the application of protective products that lower freezing temperature of crops, with presumed antifreeze action, although effectiveness is not yet confirmed and in any case variable.


Ash obtained from lignocellulosic organic residues is a soil improver that is very rich in nutrients.
