Rome, November 1 - The number of agricultural
companies active in Italy shrank by 32.2% between 2000 and 2010,
more than double the pace of the contraction in the earlier
decade, according to a new sector report by the Italian
Geographic Society.
Total land surface used for agricultural purposes in Italy
in the period fell by 2.3%, according to the report outlining
the "New Face" of rural activities in the eurozone's third
largest economy.
"Agricolture has lost large swathes of space as a result of
the cement building process," said Fabio Pollice, who teaches at
the University of Salento and helped draw up the report.
"Agriculture offers great contributions to the development
of the nation.
"If there is a sector that is very innovative, it is that
of agriculture".
