In collaboration with the jail La Fortezza in Volterra, we are opening “L’orto della Tradizione”, an area of around 2,000 m2 to grow vegetables and to test new solutions for sustainable agriculture, giving the participants the opportunity to take part in the research project.
In these weeks they are preparing the soil and transplanting cucumber plants for a test on Folistim Onda, one of our brand new solutions.
The initiative has a strong social vocation: working side by side on a common project, in connection with nature, promotes the development of interpersonal bonds and integration.
“Zero hunger” and “Climate Action” are some of the most urgent sustainable development goals, according to the UN 2030 Agenda.
The agricultural sector is definitely a crucial segment if we want to change our future for the better.
Today, modern agriculture has to face a number of challenging issues: on one side the dramatic effects of climate change, on the other the severe soil pollution caused by the extensive use of pesticides and – last but not least – a growing demand for food due to a constantly increasing world population.
This is why FertiGlobal’s R&D has focused on the need for valid alternatives to the traditional use of pesticides.
Our #EnNuVi technology is the latest result of our in-depht studies: a savvy combination of bioactive polyphenols with selected natural ingredients, able to enhance plant growth from seed germination to maturity, boost its resistance to abiotic stress conditions and enlarge its life cycle.
The value of our EnNuVi technology has been recognized and awarded by the European Union, that is supporting the project within its LIFE Programme.
Meeting with the new generation of sustainable agriculture professionals
FertiGlobal meets the next generations of sustainable agriculture professionals!
We recently had the pleasure to take part in a very interesting multi-voice webinar in collaboration with the Faculty of Biotechnologies of the Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy. During the meeting, we had the opportunity to introduce students to the many challenging career options they can choose in the agriculture industry.
As you know, at FertiGlobal’s R&D hub in Larderello a young team of scientists, including biotechnologists and agronomists, are developing cutting edge crop nutrition technologies, actively contributing to a radical change of the global agriculture sector.
We are happy to give young students who are willing to specialize in Agricultural Research a concrete proof of the huge contribution they can give to the sector and to our Planet as a whole.

Making global agriculture more sustainable requires a concrete commitment from all agribusiness players to embrace this big change.
This is why today reducing pesticides and promoting new eco-friendly alternatives for crop nutrition needs to be a top priority.
Partnering with a highly qualified and reliable company is essential for fertilizer resellers and distributors to make this evolution towards new sustainable solutions a real success.
In this brief guide we tell you why FertiGlobal is the right partner to choose for a successful, modern and sustainable Agribusiness: FertiGlobal – 6 good reasons
There’s no better way to show the power of FertiGlobal’s EnNuVi technology than seeing it in action!
Look at this beautiful vineyard in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco!
Here, together with one of our partners in the region, FertiGlobal’s local team is holding technical meetings directly on-field. In this way, farmers have the chance to see the super positive effects of our EnNuVi technology on crops and benefit from the expert advice of our Brazilian team.
The audience was amazed to find out how grapes have coped with typical seasonal diseases thanks to EnNuVi’s ‘energy boost’.
Life ENVision Project to the Biotechnology students
Our R&D Manager Valentina Ciccolini recently had the pleasure to present our LIFE ENVision Project to the Biotechnology students of the University of Milan (Italy) during a dedicated lecture.
As you know, the European Union has rewarded FertiGlobal’s long-term vision aimed at mitigating the environmental footprint of agriculture while supporting higher yield productivity thanks to our worldwide patented bioactivating technology EnNuVi®.
This is why we have been invited to introduce our project to the students.
Connecting with the new generation of scientists and starting an open debate with them has been truly inspiring!
Raising awareness on the challenges of modern agriculture among young students is extremely important for our mission. That’s what #SowingForTheFuture of agriculture really means!
Have you ever heard of ‘Nutraceuticals’? This word is a combination of ‘nutrition’ and ‘pharmaceuticals’ and describes all foods providing proven health benefits when eaten/absorbed.
Grape is one of these foods. Its berries are a natural source of polyphenols, which are precious organic micronutrients with antioxidants and potential health benefits. Just like a small pharmacy right at our disposal for most of the year!
Well, in the labs of FertiGlobal’s tech hub in Larderello our R&D team has been carrying out a very interesting experiment.
After an in-depht testing phase, they have proven the ability of our biostimulant technology EnNuVi to increase the nutraceutical value of grape crops.
Thanks to the combination of EnNuVi with the standard fertilizing practice in the vineyard, the amount of polyphenols in grape berries gets 25% higher and the overall antioxidant power improves by more than 55%.
This is another important step for our LIFE ENVision Project. Stay tuned to learn more about this test all the other trials we are carrying out with the aim of changing the global agriculture sector for the better!
? These strawberry fields have been the best performing in Chile last year and they are ready to win the record again!
This is why we have joined this challenge, in line with our commitment to constant improvement.
