With the research on our single and remontant varieties we have started collaborations in the USA, Mexico and South Africa. Thanks to the consolidated experience, the continuous investments in research & development, the synergy and cooperation with the most qualified public and private research centers at an international level, Civ has always been committed to varietal innovation thanks to sensory characteristics of high quality, adaptability and resistance. to the main pathologies to meet the needs of production, satisfy different customer segments and preserve nature".
