Vacaria has a temperate climate and natural conditions that provide the best weather in the world for apple production; this, together with a wide variety of different technological advancements and remote monitoring via satellite, provide continuous improvement in productivity.
Schio orchards are in constant reconversion. Each year more than half a million seedlings are produced. The modern varieties that emerge through our research are taken from the nursery between the months of July and August to be stored in cold storage chambers for about 45 days. This process is done so that there is a break in dormancy, supplying the demand of cold hours necessary to have good sprouting of the lateral buds of the seedlings. Only then are they transported to the orchards to be planted.

Agropecuária Schio is one of the companies licensed for the production of the Geneva® series of apple tree rootstocks. They present a better agronomic performance on the control of canopy vigor, improved production rates and resistance to soil diseases and to some insects harmful to the development of the apple tree. In the experiments initially performed in Brazil, the CG series had good results compared to traditionally used rootstocks.
