Why do we love Meracinque rice?
Because the five Tovo sisters only cultivate 100% pure Carnaroli seeds
, in Roncoferraro, in the province of Mantua
, a unique area in terms of geo-physical characteristics: its clayey soil is in fact particularly suited to this type of cereal.
For their MICRO NATURAL®
method which allows the conservation of the good health of the plant by maintaining a healthy environment of the rice field with micronized rock dust and natural microorganisms.
For the combination of precision agriculture
combined with the principles of the " Internet of Farming
", based on the harmonious and interconnected use of different technologies.
For the paddy rice to age each year
, so as to
ossify the grain which preserves its nutritional properties and guarantees excellent cooking resistance.
For drying at low temperatures
to avoid cracking of the grains. The fuel used is LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) which leaves no traces of hydrocarbons on the product, unlike other fuels.
For all-round respect for the environment
, from soil mapping, variable rate sowing, cover crops, minimum tillage and land rotation to compostable packaging, in an innovative material that decomposes in 90 days in organic waste
without leaving no trace of microplastic.
