One of  the main outcomes of the project, the Olive4Climate Handbook, is now available to download! Just follow the link:

Olive4Climate Handbook _ENG

This manual takes in consideration the main phases of modern olive growing with particular attention to sustainable management of the crop.

The main phases of olive growing, starting from the planting up to the harvest and to the treatment of co-products, are treated proposing an approach which allows a reduction of their environmental impact. In particular, these sustainable good practices propose the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and carbon accumulation in the plant biomass. These actions make the olive tree and therefore, olive growing, an effective tool for the mitigation of climate change.
