Spring at Campo Caputo

15 May 2021

How are the corn ears in the Caputo field doing in such a volatile period? Let's find out together.

Spring is advancing at a great pace, despite some sudden winter's last ditch efforts. How are the corn ears in the Caputo field doing in such a volatile period? Let's find out together.

We left behind us a harsh winter with wide periods of rain.
Damp banks so significant to force us to sow with a multistep approach.
Then, the coming of a very harsh February further complicated the situation.

We were hoping in a mild spring to dry out the soil of our fields.

Did the happy ending come?

Basically, the cold is now finally receding and we had no need to adopt particular defensive measures to protect our seedlings!


April is a delicate transition moment: from the tillering (that is the transformation of the seed in stem) to the spiking that will follow in May.
Our precious seedlings will need care and nourishment and the farmers of the Grano Nostrum project will be busy keeping the crops in good health until May.


What you see on the cover is a photo of a sunset from the place where the Miller's New Year is usually celebrated.
We hope this year to return to reap together the fruits of our labor...
