Analysis of the location of horticultural production

Acta Horticulturae (25): 250-264

Analysis of the location of horticultural production

Agricultural production in Italy is becoming increasingly oriented towards the market. It is therefore becoming necessary to understand trends in the geographic distribution of the various crops so as to analyze factors which have influenced location and use this knowledge for future planning. Italian horticultural production location during 1948-68 is analysed by regions, provinces and agricultural zones.
