ARSIAL promotes the development and innovation of Lazio's agricultural and rural system.
The Agency acts as a link between the production system and the research world, working in particular in the adaptation and transfer of process and product innovations, aimed at improving the competitiveness of companies, the quality of products, the protection of agro-ecosystems. It performs supervisory functions on the production of regulated quality (PDO-IGP-BIO), supporting the spread of organic and low environmental impact crops, the development of brands and quality certification, as well as the protection and enhancement of genetic resources present on the regional territory. Through an intense activity of promotion of the typical and quality products of Lazio, it favors the opening of new commercial outlets for our companies in the agri-food sector, with actions aimed at the penetration of the internal and foreign markets.
Finally, the Agency manages the integrated agro-meteorological service of the Lazio Region, carries out functions of promotion, control and supervision of the regional agri-tourism system and, through the Wildlife Observatory, supports the Region in the activities of research, experimentation and environmental protection to the fishing fauna, both in inland and marine waters.
