COVIRO is an agricultural nursery company, founded in 1978, that directly produces and sells certified plants for the fruit-production field.
The main nursery activity is the production of STRAWBERRY PLANTS and ASPARAGUS CROWNS.
COVIRO has been working hard for many years guaranteeing its nursery products (National certification, European certification and CAC) to contribute to the quality improvement of the fruit-farming market. Since 1987, COVIRO has been recognized as an accredited MULTIPLICATION CENTER for the voluntary National Strawberry Certification program, today as Qualità Vivaistica Italia QVI.
Aware of the importance of providing its customers with the best possible health status and the absolute genetic certainty of the nursery material, it has set up fields of strawberry mother plants, with the collaboration and under the strict control of the Phytosanitary Service of the Emilia-Romagna Region. Nursery production is mostly located in Emilia Romagna and, since 2003, new nurseries for fresh strawberry plants have been established in Spain and Poland to satisfy customers’ requirements.
COVIRO, associated with cooperative C.A.V. since 2006, agrees to a plan for the certification of traceability of chain distribution.
COVIRO collaborates with several International and Italian Scientific Institutions and Breeding program companies to identify and dispose of the best varieties on the market.
Since 2018 it is a partner of BERRYLAB, a private breeding company for the search for new varieties for continental climates.
