Church in rice field
The ancient church of Sant’Antonio, now a ruin, which is reflected in the rice fields of Casaleggio di Novara, Piedmont, Italy.
The new challenge of agriculture in the transition from traditional crops to precision agriculture via satellite is to preserve the Italian territory from soil consumption and to promote animal and plant biodiversity in the entire processing cycle, in the specific case of rice fields from flooding of the rice fields until the ripe ears are harvested by adopting good practices and addressing new problems such as the presence of invasive species.
