“This year we have monitored 23.77% of the territory, carried out 53 missions and 129 flight hours. We identified 2000 plantations in 2016, with more than 700.000 plants. For 2017 we identified 88 plantations with 5000 plants. The reduction is visible”, said Stefano Screpanti, from Guardia di Finanza.
