The Region of Tuscany has recently appointed the technical-scientific commissions provided for by Regional Law no. 64 of 16/11/2004 for the 'Protection and valorisation of the heritage of local breeds and varieties of agricultural, zootechnical and forestry interest'. Over the next three years, the Commissions are called upon to express their opinion on applications for registration to the Regional Register of Local Tuscan Breeds and Varieties, also valid for registration to the National Register of Biodiversity of Agricultural and Food Interest.
