Research & Development
For years, the Riserva Sant’Agostino has hosted professors, researchers and trainees from the University della Tuscia who carry out land management projects. Our latest project regarded agricultural precision. Together with the assistance of the University and the collaboration of Irritec Company, we installed water drippers for our new plantation of olive trees. Water drippers that helped us in reducing soil ingestion and root intrusion. A technological advance that guarantees maximum efficiency with least environmental impact.
This year the farm invested on a high-tech two-phase olive oil mill. The two-phase technology, does not use the addition of dilution water, in order to avoid the washout of the oil, preserving its most valuable aromatic parts, and to operate at low temperatures to obtain a high-quality product, rich in polyphenols. The body and the fruity aroma of the oil are greater and it improves the conservation of the oil because the polyphenols, excellent natural antioxidants, are not dispersed in the wastewater.
