Maize value Chain
Mais 100% Project aims to indicate the possibilities of creating a circular agricultural economy system within the maize production chain. The Project has the objective of enhancing the valorisation of maize crop residues (stalks, cobs, bracts) from grain productions, ‘dry’ or wet (mash feed). Through the introduction of specific work systems, those residues can become useful materials for the typical production chains of the cereal-zootechnic areas of Lombardy and, more generally, of the Po Valley.
