Italian Journal of Agrometeorology.

Agriculture and forestry occupy large areas of Italy, a country of about 301.000 square km with an elongated shape, a complex topography, a wide latitudinal distribution (from the Alps to the core of the Mediterranean, with 9 millions square km of shores) and two great islands (Sicily and Sardinia). The consequence is an high variety of climates and consequently of cultures, from alpine and continental cultures like apple trees, corn and soybean (Northern Italy) to Mediterranean cultures like the olive and the citrus fruits. In particular, we have 150.000 square km of agricultural surface, 87.000 square km of forests and 40.000 square km of pastures. The above mentioned features justify the interest for agrometeorology in our country where all the three segments of this discipline (services, research and education) are represented: Agrometeorological services: are represented by the Central Office for Agricultural Ecology (UCEA) which is part of MIPA (Agricultural Ministry of Italy).
