Focus on quality.

Until a few decades ago, the farmer only had in mind quantity. Today, with the evolution of the fruit market, the focus is increasingly on quality. The high planting costs do not allow for basic errors: it is useless to prepare the soil well, fertilize, prepare the irrigation system, the poles, if the plants do not meet the best requirements. A low-quality orchard costs a little less at first.

But it will produce unevenly, with fruit that does not match the requirements of the market, will require continuous care and adjustment. Until, resigned, the farmer eradicates it. For this reason, Vivai F.lli Zanzi offers only high quality plants, both in terms of development (endowments of branches, graft welding), and for the health of the materials and genetic certainty.

Targeted and repeated consultancy allow to reach high qualitative and quantitative standards. We believe that investing in quality is the best way to safeguard your company and all of Italian agriculture, even in the long term.


Innovation bears fruit.

Agriculture is an ancient science that however thrives on continuous innovations. Vivai F.lli Zanzi has always worked to bring new varieties and new rootstocks to the market, respecting the international regulations on patents and paying royalties to the legitimate holders.

The company has obtained multiplication licenses for numerous varieties, making agreements with international universities and laboratories. Among these is the European exclusivity of the most famous strawberry varieties obtained by the University of California, still of great importance worldwide today. The entrepreneurship of Vivai F.lli Zanzi is not afraid to look ahead and embrace the new ideas that are born around the world.


Certification, a guarantee for everyone.

All the production of Vivai F.lli Zanzi is subjected to strict phytosanitary controls to guarantee a high sanitary and quality standard. Having disease-free plants is an indispensable condition for the success of the plant.

Already at the end of the sixties, with great foresight, the company began various processes of rehabilitation of plant material, building repositories of basic materials, thermotherapy cells, isolation greenhouses and fields of mother plants.

Subsequently, Zanzi nurseries has always been at the forefront on the issue of certification, collaborating with institutes and authorities at regional and national level to arrive at a clear regulation of the sector. Increasing the production of certified plants (strawberries, pome fruit, stone fruit) is a competitive lever that will help Italian agriculture to counter and even overcome competition from other European Union countries.
