A part of the flat land around the farmhouse is given over to the cultivation of crops and is divided into arable land and temporary grass. An area of about 40 hectares is planted with autumn-winter cereals, such as durum and soft wheat, barley and oats or with renewable crops, in particular corn and sunflower. About 10 hectares are sown with temporary grass like alfalfa which is then wilted. Part of the land which is arable has to follow the practice of set- aside, or in other words left uncultivated according to the CAP regulations. All areas intended for arable crops that are either cereals or temporary grass, fall into the agronomic logic of rotation in order to maintain good levels of soil fertility.
