Metropolitan Foodscape Planner Milan City-Region

The first figure illustrates that in the wider metropolitan region of Milan, the presence of the Alpine high-elevation landscapes constitute a severely limitation for food production. Overall it is striking that the area demands in the Milan example are clearly lower which is due to another footprint calculation mode based on EFSA-data only.

We see high surplus provision with other cereals as well as with rice – a crop that is unique to the Po-valley region South of Milano. Most of the rice and other cereals are used for export. Surprisingly for Mediterranean location we see deficits for both fruit and vegetables production (see Figure below).
