Agricultural characteristics of strain of Helix aspersa (Muller)

Snail Farming Research 3: 26-31
Agricultural characteristics of strain of Helix aspersa (Muller)
The performance of 2 strains of Helix aspersa and their crosses was studied in central Italy using the field pen system. A strain of local origin laid its eggs almost exclusively after the 'July break' when the snails aestivate, and matured at a weight of 10-13 g from the spring of the following year onward.
