The research project, financed by the Lombardy Region in the frame of “PSR 2014-2020 Operazione 10.2.01 – Conservation of animal and plant biodiversity”, aims to study the genetic, morphological, biochemical and metabolic variability of chestnut populations growing in two geographical areas, in the province of Varese and Brescia.
CASTADIVA supports chestnut cultivation in Lombardy as an opportunity both from an economic and biological point of view.
