OLIOP: Cutting-Edge Olive Production Chain in Oltrepò Pavese

OLIOP: A New Olive Cultivation Supply Chain in Oltrepò Pavese

On February 16, 2024, at 4:00 PM, a highly significant event for Oltrepò Pavese will take place at CO.PRO.VI. Società Cooperativa in Casteggio: the meeting "OLIOP: Perspectives for a Cutting-Edge Olive Production Chain". 


The OLIOP project has been financed under the Cascade Calls for businesses provided by NODES Spoke 6 (Line A). The lead partner is ECO srl, which, together with its partners Az. Agr. Germano Valentini, Az. Agr. La radisa di Filippo Pre’, and Az. Agr. Andrea Saroni, proposes OLIOP to support the establishment of a new supply chain: olive cultivation in Oltrepò Pavese.


Oltrepò Pavese is an area historically characterized by high-quality viticulture, the cultivation levels of which are gradually rising due to the effects of climate change. The project aims to define a precise protocol for low-altitude olive production, which includes the digitization of olive distribution areas, the design of pilot plants in different microclimates, and the development of advanced monitoring systems to providing predictive models and decision support. 


The objectives of the OLIOP project aim to define a precise production protocol, to be achieved through a series of targeted strategies: 


  • Survey and Digitization of Olive Distribution Areas
  • Design of Pilot Plants in Different Microclimates
  • Population of a Database in a Mobile/Desktop Application
  • Agronomic and Nursery Consulting
  • Agro-Meteorological Bulletin for Sustainable Cultivation
