Agriculture and livestock in the Alpujarra

You are here

Agriculture in the high and medium alpujarra (including here the Eastern contraviesa) revolves around traditional Mediterranean crops: vine, olive, almond, fig, green beans, tomatoes, chestnuts,...

(machine translation)

irrigated areas are dedicated to cereal, legumes and potatoes, with some fruit trees interspersed in the majority of cases like separation and containment of terraces. Since the beginning of the Decade of the eighties experimenting with raspberry in areas between 900 and 1,300 meters above sea level (especially the cádiar environment) has become a profitable and favourable crop for industrialization; in 1990 the harvest in this crop exceeds 375,000 tons.

alpujarra wine production is distributed by fourteen municipalities with altitudes averages ranging between 1,200 and 1,500 meters. This elevation leads to grapes low in weight, but rich in graduation, sugar and aroma. Production of the almost 200 small family wineries (increases each time the number of cooperative wine) ranges between 5 and 7 million litres per year.

the olive grove of the alpujarra emerges as an extension of the Valley of lecrín, walk-in with a strong presence to orgiva and tend to be a marginal trees as we move towards the Eastexcept for the 1,200 acres of alcolea, at the other end of Almería. The cultivation of the olive grove happens in many cases what the rest of fruit trees, is preserved as a containment of terraced vegetable crops. Is estimated at 3,000 the number of hectares planted and five million kilograms of a crop half that, at most, gives for the subsistence of the indigenous population.
