Agricultural forecasts
Decresase in olive for oil production - January 2019
19 February 2019


Early estimates on January 31 point to a substantial decrease in olive for olive oil production (-20% compared to the previous campaign), with very heterogeneous yields in traditional dryland groves and lower oil yield of olives.
As for the autumn/winter cereals, the sowing is completed and, despite the favourable weather conditions for its installation, a decrease of 3% in the area of these crops is estimated, mainly due to the decrease in wheat, triticale and barley. The growth has been normal, with regular cereal fields and good vegetative aspect.
