The groves have a planting
density of some 1.000
trees/ha, following different planting
The trees are disposed in hedgerows, which
allows “just in time” harvesting
exactly at the right
moment to obtain olives of the best quality. Time between harvesting and grinding is
never longer than three hours.Water is irrigated
together with fertilizer – fertirrigation
– through a drip irrigation system.
Water is provided once a day close to each
plant´s roots, with the needed amount
of fertilizer and at exactly the proper
time, achieving a high
efficiency for those scarce resources.
The used varieties are “Arbequina,
“Arbosana” and “Frantoio”.
“Arbequina” and “Arbosana”
are native of the region and are perfectly
adapted to the climate of the production
area. Presently the plantation has 250.000
trees; 215.000 belong to the variety “Arbequina”.
It is expected to increase this number to
400.000, expanding the productive base and
introducing new varieties.
