The first phase of planting is done through a roller seeder which provides the filling of hollow containers, at first with peat coming from Northern European countries: Norway, Germany and Holland, then with standard seed and hybrids, produced by specialized Italian and foreign seed companies, guaranteed and high quality.
After planting, the containers are brought in a germination room with temperatures ranging between 24 and 28 degrees and humidity at 95%. When the seed has germinated, the containers are placed in a greenhouse and watered through automatic and regular irrigation systems.
