Spain: Alicante artichokes saved by rainfall
The widespread rains recorded in the night from Saturday to Sunday in Alicante have been "a blessing of incalculable value" because, among other reasons, the artichoke campaign has been saved in extremis, according to the Association of Young Farmers (Asaja) from Alicante.
These rains have not only "saved what remains of the vegetable campaign," especially in the case of artichokes, "but will also help extend the first stage for another month and will make a second harvest possible in many plantations." The weather has also been beneficial for the citrus sector, which had been suffering from "stagnant calibres for more than a month," reported Asaja.
Alicante's agricultural sector had already accounted for "the loss of 1,000 hectares of vegetables in areas such as the Vega Baja, which are no longer recoverable," explained sources of this entity.
Also, "more than two million kilos of vegetables have been lost in Camp d'Elx, which has also seen its acreage reduced by 10% during the current season and where they fear they won't be able to deliver two thirds of the production if the rains don't continue or water is supplied from elsewhere," they specified.
